Wetting Agent – FireFive®

Wetting Agent - FireFive®

FireFive®: the micelle encapsulator era

The next generation wetting agent and micelle encapsulator.

FireFive® is the innovative UL certified wetting agent which revolutionized the traditional approach of fire fighting, developed by our partner company Zelig Hi-Tech.

FireFive® is more then a wetting agent able to maximize the water extinguishing power and cooling strength. It is also a micelle encapsulator which neutralizes the hydrocarbon molecules.

Laboratory and field tests on live fire, performed in cooperation with fire fighters and military bodies, have shown that FireFive®, mixed with water in a very low percentage, inhibits the chain reaction at the basis of the combustion process and extinguishes class A, B, D and F (K) fires. Moreover, it can supress three-dimensional fires which, as a matter of common knowledge, foams can not suppress.

FireFive® is biodegradable, non-toxic, not corrosive, with an effectiveness even in the most extreme atmospheric conditions (up to -28° C / -18° F).

Its efficiency is tested and certified by UL according to Regulation NFPA 18 and RINA.

In compliance with European REACH Regulation for chemical agent classification, FireFive® requires no special equipment and can be used both with fire mixer and in premixed solution.

FireFive® suppresses fires very quickly thanks to its four properties. It is able to: maximizing the water power, reducing the heat, encapsulating and neutralizing the hydrocarbon molecules, interrupting the free radical chain reaction.

The water surface tension lowers about three fold when it is mixed with FireFive®: single water drops get separate into more little droplets, loosing their spherical shape, with consequent increasing of wettability, penetrating the fire more deeply and quickly. Deducting heat from fire, FireFive® drastically lowers the temperature of the application zone and the surrounding areas too, inhibiting re-ignition, backfires and radiation.

Moreover, it restricts the chain reaction of the free radicals, high reactivity particles which stoke combustion propagation and smoke production. Encapsulating toxic smokes and vapours, FireFive® increases visibility, rendering the environment safer for rescue operators.

One of the most astonishing FireFive® features is to encapsulate both liquid and gaseous hydrocarbon molecules, even in three-dimensional fire cases. It encloses fuel molecules with a chemical covering named micelle, isolating and neutralizing them, rendering them non-flammable.
