Abstract: Simultaneous Thermal Analysis (STA) unifies the application of thermogravimetry (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) to one and the same sample in a single instrument, under perfectly identical conditions. The results obtained by STA were used in a new way, to reveal the influence of plasma-aided flame retardancy on thermal behavior and flammability of wood. New integral criteria of thermal behavior such as specific enthalpy change, kJ/kg, and specific heat flux, kW/kg or kJ/(kg sec), have been developed by investigating three different species of Mexican wood (Yucatan) - Mexican white cedar (Cupressus Lusitanica); Caoba mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla); and Tzalam (Lysiloma bahamensis).
