For more than 25 years, Cold FIre has been used by progressive fire departments and police departments to put out fires and protect the public. Completely non-toxic and eco-friendly, Cold Fire is even more important in light of current industry events.
For the last several years, countries around the world have been phasing out firefighting foams that contain perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). These include PFOA and PFOS chemicals, which are man-made synthetic chemicals that have been widely produced and used throughout the world in various products and industries, including firefighting foams – specifically AFFF and AR-AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam and Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam).
There are major concerns regarding these chemicals because they do not biodegrade, they accumulate over time in our bodies and in the environment and can cause negative health effects. PFAS are known carcinogens. Laboratory studies have shown that prolonged exposure may lead to the development of cancer, interfere with the body's natural hormone function, affect our immune system and cause liver, kidney and developmental toxicity.
Cold Fire has been officially certified as PFAS-free by a Department of Defense authorized laboratory. Unlike other companies, Cold Fire has ALWAYS been PFAS-free, unlike some companies which have had to scramble to come up with a new formula to replace their long-chain AFFF foams. Some companies have ‘gamed’ the system a bit, shortening the molecular chain from C8 to C6, which really means it is just a little safer for the people and environment that the old AFFF formulae.
Cold Fire is a UL-listed Advanced Wetting Agent, effective against Class A, B, D & K fires. It is particularly effective against automobile fire and liquid fuel fires, usually extinguishing them in seconds.
