unique formulation is considered to penetrate a fire six
times faster than water, giving it the capability to
penetrate a heated surface more quickly than water alone.
Cold FireŽ penetrates a heated surface and instantly cools
it down, unlike water alone which converts to heated steam.
Using Cold FireŽ enhances safety!
COLD FIREŽ is
added to pump apparatus, reservoirs, or inducted into fire
hose lines to attack large fires.
Application Pressure: Pump - Use 150-175 psi: Nozzle - Use
100-110 psi (fog nozzle is usually recommended)
fireŽ rapid cooldown spray
This product was
designed as a safety tool for trade applications. It is used
to cool down hot surfaces rapidly. It is an excellent tool
for plumbers, welders, roofers, mechanics . all those who
work with hot surfaces and open flame. Several members of
the motorized racing industry use this handy tool to cool
down hot surfaces such as tires and brakes when cars come
into the pit area. Available in 12 oz. air powered spray
can, this product is light weight and easy to handle. Sprays
in any direction, even upside down!
block fire retardant
the extraorindary life saving and fire fighting Cold Fire,
Fire Suppressing Agent, the FIRE BLOCK Fire Retardant is a
revolutionary product which retards fires by stopping
dangerous flames from spreading.
This unique product offers extraordinary fire retarding
capability of any Class A surface with no flame spread and
also inhibits hydrocarbon smoke development.
FIRE BLOCK works to actually form a thermal insulation
barrier to prevent flames from spreading. This unique
thermal insulation barrier factor is attributed to the
unique cooling characteristic of the product.
Application: Spray on or soak any Class A type surface (i.e.
wood, cotton, paper, furnishings, etc.). Allow product to
completely penetrate surface/material and let dry
Available in 5 and 55 gallon drums.
Also available in 32 oz. pump bottles.
COLD FIREŽ can
be used in 2.5 gallon water extinguishing units for first
response. One quart of COLD FIRE is added to 8 quarts of
water to equal a 10% solution. Alway add COLD FIREŽ last to
the mixture! Unit should be pressurized to 125 psi. A
aerated nozzle is recommended.
COLD FIREŽ can also be used in closed loop systems,
sprinkler systems, and on-board systems for automobile,
motorized racing, aviation, rail and boating industries.
Cold Fire UL Listed
Yes. Cold Fire is listed as a Class A & B Wetting Agent.
Is Cold Fire listed with the NFPA:
Cold Fire has been tested in accordance with NFPA Standard
18 for Wetting Agents.
How does Cold Fire work?
To understand how Cold Fire work, you must first understand
the basic structure of fire. In order for a fire to be
created, three components are necessary, fuel, oxygen, and
heat. These three components form what is called a
"fire triangle." Most agents extinguish fires by
breaking down one leg of the fire triangle, heat and fuel.
Cold Fire is considered to have 6 times the penetrating
capability of water. This characteristic, coupled with its
extraordinary capability to absorb heat, allows Cold Fire to
penetrate a fire faster, absorb the heat, and bring the fuel
source generating the fire under its flash point more
quickly. Cold Fire also works to encapsulate the fuel source
and its vapors and simultaneously begins to break down the
molecular structure of the hydrocarbon fuel source
Is Cold Fire a Foam?
No. Cold Fire is a unique wetting agent that when applied
breaks the chemical chain reaction of fire. Cold Fire works
to encapsulate the fuel source and eliminate the heat of a
fire. By encapsulating the fuel source, the vapors of the
fuel can no longer be vaporized to cause re-ignition. Foam
works to "blanket"/smother the fuel source and
works to eliminate the oxygen of a fire. It does not
encapsulate or cool the source. Cold Fire is advantageous in
comparison to AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) because if
the foam blanket of a AFFF is disrupted the vapor of the
fuel underneath the blanket can easily re-ignite.
Other advantages to Foam
Cold Fire is non-toxic and non-corrosive. Foam is a toxic
and corrosive. Cold Fire can be dumped directly into booster
tanks or inducted without fear of clogging lines corrosion
of hoses and tanks. When using foam lines need to be flushed
out. Foam is also not a good agent for fighting vertical
fires because it has minimal if no penetration value to
penetrate and extinguish a fire faster. Cold Fire has 6 to
10 times the penetration capacity of water, extinguishing
and cooling a surface 6 to 10 times faster than water. Cold
Fire is also non-slip and does not leave a reside.
AFFF is a Class B foam. There are also many Class A foams on
the market. Many fire departments purchase both Class A and
B foams. Cold Fire allows fire departments to purchase only
one product. Cold Fire extinguishes both Class A and B
fires. By purchasing Cold Fire, Fire Departments will save
money and time as they will no longer need to : purchase two
products and flush out lines or tanks due to fear of
clogging and corrosion.
On what classes of fire can Cold
Fire be used?
Class A; Wood, tires, brush, forest, structures, textiles,
Class B: Vehicles, oil, gasoline, diesel, alcohol
Class D: Metals, such as magnesium, aluminum, &
What percentage of Cold Fire is
used to extinguish the above classes of fire?:
Class A: use 1-3% of Cold Fire (ex. 500 gallons at 3%=15
gallons of Cold Fire.
Class B: use 3-6% of Cold Fire (ex. 500 gallons at 6%=30
gallons of Cold Fire.
Class D: use 6-10% of Cold Fire (ex. 500 gallons at 10%=50
gallons of Cold Fire.
What are the advantages of using
Cold Fire in place of other agents?
Cold Fire is environmentally friendly, 100% biodegradable,
non-toxic and non-corrosive.
Cold Fire reduces the density of hydrocarbon smoke, thereby
Cold Fires unique rapid cooling capability enhances
safety. Cold Fires rapid cooling effect reduces the
chances of flashover.
The shelf life of Cold Fire is indefinite as long as it is
stored in closed containers between 28°F and 120°F.
Cold Fire can be added directly into your booster tank. Cold
Fire is non-corrosive and 100% soluble. It will not corrode
your equipment or clog your hose lines.
Cold Fire is non-slip.
What is the advantage of using Cold
Fire in place of water alone?
Cold Fire is significantly more efficient than water alone.
It enhances the waters ability to penetrate the source of
the fire; thereby extinguishing the fire with significantly
less water and reducing the amount of water damage.
Cold Fire greatly enhances the waters ability to absorb
heat, allowing fire fighters to gain entry into a structure
or room much faster.
Cold Fire absorbs British Thermal Units (BTUs) three
times faster than water alone, thereby extinguishing the
fire three times faster.
How is Cold Fire sold?
Cold Fire is sold in 5 and 55 gallon drums for fire
departments, commercial and industrial applications. Cold
Fire is also sold in 12 oz. spray cans and 32 oz. spray
bottles for trade, tool, racing applications.
Does the use of Cold Fire require
No. Cold Fire can be dumped directly into your booster tank
or can easily be inducted. No special equipment is required.
