PHOS-CHEK LC95 fire retardants are concentrated liquids that mix readily with water by recirculation, agitation or with mechanical or electronic PHOS-CHEK liquid proportioning systems. PHOS-CHEK LC95 fire retardant and variants are the only liquid concentrate (LC) ammonium polyphosphate retardants that offer both the ease of mixing and handling of a liquid and the aerial drop advantages of a gum-thickened retardant. The elastic nature of the thickener in PHOS-CHEK retardants reduces drift, dispersion and evaporation and facilitates increased fuel coverage, wrap around and penetration through canopy and ladder fuels to ground vegetation. Recovery can exceed 90%.
PHOS-CHEK LC95 is available in Red Iron Oxide (R), Fugitive (F) and Uncolored (W). The fugitive color maintains visibility during application, but slowly fades after exposure to sunlight. LC95A-R is available as low viscosity or medium viscosity. Medium viscosity is ideal for higher altitude drops or where higher coverage levels are desired.
Uncolored PHOS-CHEK LC95W is ideal for ground application where color is not required or undesirable.

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
