A paper prepared for the 14th Annual Meeting of the IRG, Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia, 9-13 May 1983. In tests in accordance with Australian Standard 1530:Part 3:1976, heartwood samples of radiata pine gave higher ignitability, heat evolved and flame spread indices than sapwood. Treatability with Pyrogard H (an amino resin) was assessed; backsawn sapwood was most easily treated.
