Phos-Chek 259-F fire retardant is a highly soluble powder that mixes readily with water by recirculation, agitation or with Phos-Chek eductor-mixer and hopper-mixer systems. Phos-Chek 259-F produces a fugitive (F) color solution that maintains visibility during application, but slowly fades during exposure to sunlight. Phos-Chek 259-F produces a gum thickened, low-viscosity fire retardant solution that provides highly effective and accurate aerial drops. The elastic nature of the thickener in Phos-Chek 259-F facilitates increased fuel coverage, wrap around and penetration through canopy and ladder fuels to ground vegetation. Phos-Chek 259-F exhibits extremely low corrosion in most metals including magnesium.

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
