Q: What is FireRein Eco-Gel™?
A: A water additive that forms a highly effective suppressant (at concentrations between 1-6% by volume).
Q: What is FireRein Eco-Gel™ made of?
A: It is the only fire suppressant that is 100% bio-based - made from ingredients found in food.
Competitive products use SAPs (super absorbent polymers) that can contain cancer causing chemicals and respiratory irritants. And other competitive products contain surfactants that harm plant and aquatic life and PFAS (perfluroalkyl substances) linked to birth defects.
Q: Does Eco-Gel™ actually work?
A: Yes, it knocks down fires 55% faster than water and reduces water use by 60%. It also clings to vertical surfaces. Competitive products are not effective in all water (only in clean water with a narrow pH range) and do not cling like Eco-Gel™.
Q: Where is Eco-Gel™ used?
A: EcoGelTM is used by municipalities and industry in North America.
Q: Why should I use Eco-Gel™?
A: To fight fires faster and create safe paths of egress.
