Fire Safety Global Market Leader’s FIRE-TROL® Retardant Used as Preventative Pre-treatment on Exposed Vegetation during famed Motorsport Race
ST. LOUIS, MO – Perimeter Solutions, the global leader in the production of fire retardants, foams, and water enhancing gels, along with a wide range of services for managing wildland, industrial, municipal, and military fires, today announced the company’s FIRE-TROL® brand fire retardant is once again being used to protect exposed vegetation in the urban setting adjacent to the Monaco Formula One Grand Prix race course.
Monaco’s municipality department in charge of parks, gardens and related maintenance is applying the fire retardant as a preventative pre-treatment during the period of the Grand Prix race to protect the urban vegetation environment, including pine trees, that surround the Circuit de Monaco racecourse.
Perimeter Solutions’ PHOS-CHEK® and FIRE-TROL brand long-term retardants have been successfully used around the world for decades to prevent wildland fires and to mitigate risks of ignition. Applied preventatively, long-term retardant can be effective preventing fires from igniting for months.

FT934 is an uncolored long-term fire retardant liquid concentrate formulated for ground application and is ideal for use along railways, motorways and developed urban areas to prevent ignition and spread of wildland fires. FIRE-TROL TF934 is mixed with water at a specific admix ratio for use and is applied using common garden or agricultural sprayers.
