Title: Plasma-aided capillary impregnation for flame retardancy of wood II. Silicone surfacе-active agent effect
Keywords: dielectric barrier air discharge (DBD), plasma-aided capillary impregnation (PACI), phosphor and nitrogen containing flame retardant, rain-forest wood, trisiloxane (silicone, silicone polyether) surfactant

Abstract: The advent and development of plasma-aided capillary impregnation contribute substantially towards the realization of plasma aided flame retardation of wood and wooden products. Using the plasma chemical activation before applying capillary impregnation on a surface substantially alters its properties and characteristics thus improving the impregnation process. The purposeful reduction of the surface tension of aqueous impregnation solutions by introducing classic (ion) in combination with silicon-organic surface-active agents (surfactants) is an essential part of the technology of plasma-aided capillary impregnation. This study has been developed as part of a large investigation on plasma-activated (functionalized) wood surface and flame retardant treated wood.
