This study carried out to determine the combustion properties of the sessile oak wood (Quercus petraea L.) which impregnated with wood preservative and subjected to surface treatments. For this purpose, the samples, which were prepared from sessile oak wood according to ASTM-E 160-50 combustion principles, impregnated with wolmanit-CB (WC) and tanalith-E (T) in accordance with ASTM-D 1413-76 and then synthetic (St) and Water-based (wb) varnishes were applied according to ASTM-D 3023. The combustion test was carried out in 3 stages, combustion with flame (CWF), self-combustion without flame source (CWOF) and ember combustion stage (ECP). It was aimed to determine the combustion temperature values in CWF, CWOF and ECP stage, weight loss, total combustion time and demolition time.
