Cold Fire® is an extinguishing agent that puts out fire more quickly than water alone in a safer way, using less water, with less damage to property and less risk to firefighters. It works on a number of classes of fire including A, B, D and F.

By using less water Cold Fire® reduces levels of run-off, reduces smoke released into the atmosphere and results in less carbon released into rivers and streams.

Cold Fire® reduces the risk to fire crews by cutting down the time firefighters are exposed to heat and carbon.

one easy to use agent – simple

times more efficient than water alone
Instant cooling
Cold Fire® safely removes intense heat on contact with any surface.

It then provides a level of thermal protection to any surface from radiant heat and removes the chance of further damage.

clean and non-toxic
What is Cold Fire®?
Cold Fire® is a wetting agent. It is not a foam/AFFF (Aqueous film forming foam) or dry powder.

It has been used successfully in North America since 1991. It has been tested in accordance with UL 162, UL 71 and NFPA 18 requirements for wetting agents for Class A and B fires in both the US and Canada. It also has the ability to extinguish Class D and F type fires.

Cold Fire® is 100% environmentally friendly as it is plant-based, non-toxic, non-corrosive and completely bio-degradable.

It has been given SNAPP (Significant New Alternatives Policy Program) by US Environmental Protection Agency as a direct replacement for Halon 1211/1301.

How Cold Fire® works
A fire can be extinguished by removing any one of the elements in the combustion triangle – oxygen, heat or fuel). Foam and dry powder smother the fire to remove the oxygen. Cold Fire® works in a different way.

It works by not only removing the heat element of the combustion triangle thereby reducing the flashpoint, but simultaneously removes the fuel source which also prevents the possibility of re-ignition.

It is this rapid cooling and encapsulation process that prevents the possibility of re-ignition.

When you apply water to a fire and/or heated surface it converts to heated steam and can result in very dangerous superheated steam. Water lacks the enhanced cooling and penetration abilities of Cold Fire® .

Cold Fire® has an extraordinary penetration capability, unlike water or air, that allows it to be rapidly absorbed into a heated surface and allows heat to be rapidly reduced and dispersed.
