Fire-Trol 931 long-term fire retardant is a concentrated liquid that mixes readily with water by recirculation, agitation or with mechanical or electronic liquid proportioning systems.
Long term retardant products are commonly known as “retardants”. They chemically alter normal pyrolysis (heat induced chemical decomposition) and limit combustion processes. A series of complex chemical reactions converts cellulose into non-combustible materials. The active agent is a nonflammable salt with standing high temperatures (whereas water would long since have evaporated) thus operating to retard the spread of flame.
FT931 is specially formulated for aerial application, and is used either in prevention or for the building of preventive chemical barriers or action in initial air attack. It is a clay thickened ammonium polyphosphate based product that has been successfully used for over 30 years.

Applied aerially, typically from scoopers or helicopters, Class A foam increases the effectiveness of water for direct suppression and mop up. Slows evaporation and improves fuel penetration.Explore
Fire suppressant gel is thickened water typcially used to coat a structure to protect it from impinging fire. Gel wraps a “blanket of water” around any structure, keeping it cool and preventing ignition from nearby fires.Explore
Custom built Phos-Chek mixing equipment provides easy mixing for support of airtanker and helicopter operations. The unique PC-CODE unit allows for retardant, foam or gel mixing and spraying in a single unit with the flip of a switch.Explore
Portable retardant bases can be set up near the fire ground to support close in, quick turnaround operations for all types of aerial delivery systems. Ground units can place retardant accurately, 24 hours a day, in almost all weather conditions.Explore
Prescribed burning and burnout operations require thickened fuel for drip and heli torches. Flash 21 is a two part liquid that instantly and perfectly gels fuel for torch operations.Explore
