Abstract

In this study, Scotch pine (Pious sylvestris L.), Oriental beech (Fagus orientalis L.), Oriental spruce (Picea orientalis L.), Uludag fir (Abies bornmulleriana Mattf), Sessile oak (Quercus petraea Lieble) and Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten) woods were impregnated with 5 %, 7.5 % and 10 % sodium borate solution produced by the National Boron Institute (ASTM D 1413-07) and the effectiveness of the chemical substances against burning were determined according to the ASTM E 160-50 standards.
