CenturyPly Announces Innovative Solution Firewall Technology through IPL
CenturyPly, India’s largest manufacturer of plywood and decorative, continues its association with IPL second year in a row, announcing the launch of Firewall Technology in Architect Ply and Club Prime range of Century Plywood. With this association, the brand aims to reach the audience all across the country and target upwardly mobile households and consumers above 30 years. Firewall Technology is the outcome of arduous and indigenous research work done by the organization.

Firewall technology involves use of nano-engineered particles, which are embedded in the polymer matrix of a plywood, giving it best-in-class firefighting properties. Ordinary plywood once ignited rapidly gets destroyed, it acts as a medium to spread fire within minutes. It also generates a lot of smoke. The rapidly spreading fire ignites and destroys everything in its way, the smoke hinders rescue operations and may suffocate people to death. Before one can realise and act, the raging fire causes irreparable losses like loss of life, trauma, injuries, mental disorders, emotional and financial instability and loss of precious belongings. CenturyPly now enriched with Firewall technology is certified as the best in class by Indian Standards (IS 5509), American Society for Testing Material (ASTM E84) and British Standard. (BS476 Part 7) when measured against critical parameters like flammability, spread ability, penetration, smoke developed index. Century Ply with Firewall Technology is best prepared to fight against self-disintegration due to fire and to contain the spread of fire and smoke generation. This helps in rescue operations, allowing time for its consumers to save own and loved ones’ lives or call for emergency help, fire engines, ambulances etc. Once the source of fire is removed it also acts to self-extinguish the fire.
The brand has launched new TVC in association with film production agency Eeksaurus which is also regarded as Oscar of Animation. The conceptualization and script of the film has been done by creative agency Walter Thompson. The ad film perfectly captures the extraordinary capacity of CenturyPly Firewall plywood to contain the spread of fire.
