Cold Fire
Cold Fire® is a environmentally friendly rapid cooling fire suppressing agent, leading the way in fire fighting technology and revolutionizing the way fire fighters combat fires!

Cold Fire® gets its name from its extraordinary ability to remove HEAT from any object in which it comes in contact. The suppressants in Cold Fire® act as encapsulators that use water as a catalyst to remove heat and work to encapsulate the fuel source from a fire.

  • Non-Toxic
  • Non-Corrosive-product can be dumped directly into booster tank.
  • No need to flush out lines
  • Biodegradable

  • Reduces Density of Hydrocarbon Smoke
  • No Messy Clean UP
  • Non-Slip
  • Indefinite Shelf Life
Industries Which Use Cold Fire®:
  • Federal, State, City & Local FIre, EMS, and Police Departments.
  • Military/Governmental Entities
  • Port Authorities
  • Aviation & Marine Industry
  • Manufacturing Facilities Trade Industry-Plumbing, Welding, Roofing
  • Motorized Racing Industry
  • Foundries
  • Forestry
  • Correctional Facilities
  • Paper & Textile Industry

  • Steel Industry
Cold Fire®'s 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 Fire® penetrates a heated surface and instantly cools it down, unlike water alone which converts to heated steam.

Using Cold Fire® enhances safety!
Bulk Applications:
COLD FIRE® 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)
Cold fire® 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!
Fire block fire retardant
Developed from 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 completely. 

ASTM-E84 tested. 
Available in 5 and 55 gallon drums. 
Also available in 32 oz. pump bottles. 
Portable extinguishers:
COLD FIRE® 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 FIRE® last to the mixture! Unit should be pressurized to 125 psi. A aerated nozzle is recommended.

COLD FIRE® can also be used in closed loop systems, sprinkler systems, and on-board systems for automobile, motorized racing, aviation, rail and boating industries. 
Usi e applicazioni
Is Cold Fire UL Listed

Yes. Cold Fire is listed as a Class A & B Wetting Agent. Listing #2N75. 
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 preventing re-ignition. 

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, etc.
Class B: Vehicles, oil, gasoline, diesel, alcohol
Class D: Metals, such as magnesium, aluminum, & Titanium. 

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 increasing visibility.

Cold Fire’s unique rapid cooling capability enhances safety. Cold Fire’s 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 water’s 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 (BTU’s) 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 specialized equipment? 

No. Cold Fire can be dumped directly into your booster tank or can easily be inducted. No special equipment is required.
