Cold Fire™ - Fire Suppressant

Cold Fire™ is an environmentally friendly fire extinguishing agent that puts out ANY fire faster, safer, with less water, less damage to property, and less risk to firefighters. Cold Fire cools 21 times faster than water, and works to remove heat and the fuel sources from the fire tetrahedron, preventing reignition. Completely ‘green’ and non-toxic, Cold Fire puts out any Class A or B fire, hydrocarbons or polar solvents, as well as metals, tires, and asphalt and more. Also suppresses vapors and helps to remediate spills.

Cold Fire™ works in two ways to remove heat and the fuel sources from the fire tetrahedron. In a liquid fuel fire, it works first as a foaming agent to suppress vapors and smother the flames, and second as a surfactant to mix with the fuel and encapsulate it at the molecular level. The suppressants in Cold Fire™ use water as a catalyst to remove the heat as well as encapsulate and break down the hydrocarbons in the fuel source to extinguish the fire more rapidly. Perhaps most importantly, Cold Fire is completely non-toxic to firefighters, even if ingested in large quantities. Plus, Cold Fire captures both free radicals and hydrocarbons in the fuel, eliminating toxins in the soot and smoke and reducing firefighters risk of injury and disease.
