COLD FIREâ

Fire Suppressing Agent

 

Cold Fire is an environmentally friendly fire suppressing agent, specially designed to extinguish Class A, B, and D fires.   Cold Fire has a rapid cooling effect, which provides rapid extinguishment, prevention of reignition, and the encapsulation of hydrocarbons.  The product is safe to store, handle and use, leaves virtually no residue, is environmentally friendly, non-toxic, non-corrosive, and biodegradable. 

 

Capabilities

Fire Suppressing Power:  Quickly snuffs out fires.  “cools” burning fuel on contact.  Prevents reignition by encapsulating fuel source.  Retards smoke generation.  Cools rapidly.

Applications:                       Class A, B and D fires of all types.

Cleanup:                               None needed.  Foam layer dissipates without leaving residue.  Product biodegrades rapidly.  Oil molecules do not form a tight emulsion with the suppressing solution.

Dispersant

Capability:                           Low.  Treated oils are not dispersed in water.

 

Characteristics

pH:                                         pH of concentrate is 6.15.  Neutral when diluted.

Flash Point:                         Negligible.

Boiling Point:                      212°F.

Odor:                                     Mild fresh scent.  Does not contain d-limoneses.  Clear color.

Water Solubility:               Complete.

Shelf Life:                            Indefinite when stored in closed containers between 32°F and 120°F.

Dilution Strength:              Use at strengths of 1% to 10% in any type of water.

Residue:                                Agent layer dissipates rapidly.  Product leaves no residue.

 

Environmental and Safety Considerations

Biodegradability:              100% in 21 days under ideal conditions.

Hazardous                           No components are listed in the NIOSH Recommendations for Occupational

Components:                       Health Standards, 1988, or are defined as hazardous by SARA, CERLA, or RCRA.  No OSHA PEL’s are established for other ingredients.

Handling:                             Suppressor is neutral.  It will remove oil from the skin and may irritate the eyes if sprayed directly into them.  When handling bulk concentrate, eye protection, gloves, and impervious clothing should be worn when there is danger of splashing, prolonged exposure to vapor, or prolonged skin contact, as with all chemicals.

Disposal:                               Suppressant itself may be disposed through municipal systems.
