If it would be done over another surface, we wouldn´t be able to distinguish the reaction neither the efects from fireproof varnish for wood. There are also certificates on the market which make on inert support, but doing so overt fireproof MDF we approach the final real use which are consumer will perform and therefore it appears in our certificates referencing woody substrates.
Conventional varnish is flammable. Fireproof varnish objective is not to declive flammability features from the implemented support. Therefore, it´s always advisable to use a fireproof varnish. However, if you want to achive a structural element certification, all the components must be firproof to achieve this certificate.
