Information

The use of retardants in Mediterranean countries is continuously increasing.

All of our products comply with applicable European environmental directives as well as OECD guidelines for the chemical testing.

Fire retardants and fire fighting foams

Aerial applications : FT931 /  LC95
Long term retardant products are commonly known as "retardants". They chemically alter normal pyrolysis (heat induced chemical decomposition) and limit combustion processes. A series of complex chemical reactions converts cellulose into non-combustible materials. The active agent is a nonflammable salt with standing high temperatures (whereas water would long since have evaporated) thus operating to retard the spread of flame. 
 
These products are available either as a concentrated liquid or powder formula, especially formulated for aerial applications. These products ares used either in prevention or for the building of preventive chemical barriers or action in initial air attack.
The aerial Fire Trol ® 931 was introduced in France in 1982. This retardant presented as a liquid concentrate is composed primarily of a specially formulated ammonium polyphosphate, and is particularly well suited to the most varied woodland covers. Its efficiency is widely recognized in the Mediterranean basin.

Ground applications : FT934 / FT936   
Liquid retardant agents are formulated exclusively for ground application (dispersal and pulverization).
NB: Fire Trol ® 934 (uncolored) and Fire Trol ® 936 (colored) are both formulated for use along railways, around developed areas (dwellings, gas stations, etc…)

Foaming agents or foams : WD881 / FF103B    
Class A foam concentrates are specially formulated for aerial and ground applications. They are used in direct initial attack. The  basic action of the foaming agents is physical. Foaming agents:
- improve and extend the cooling effect of water.
- reduce the gaseous exchanges delaying moisture loss around the fuel cell producing a progressive release of water and wetting agent. They form a thin insulating layer which produces a better coating on the fuel.
- improve the rheological features of the drops. 
Once the water content has evaporated, foaming agents have no more effect.
