Fire Cap Plus is an environmentally friendly and biodegradable wetting agent that extinguishes fires rapidly and helps eliminate flashback. When mixed properly with water, Fire Cap Plus reduces the surface tension of water which then expands the wetted surface area and promotes deeper penetration into the seat of the fire. Besides putting out the fire, the incidence of heat, smoke, and vapors is significantly reduced.
As a spill stabilizing agent, Fire Cap Plus acts as an emulsifier that separates the chemical make-up of a contaminant and then renders it non-volatile. In the process, the flammable vapors of a contaminant are reduced, which limits risk to firefighters or HAZMAT personnel. Fire Cap Plus is non-toxic, non-hazardous, biodegradable, non-corrosive and is effective against all classes of fires except live electrical.
Water is Not Free
Water carries with it a number of related costs. Procuring, storing, pumping, transporting, and ultimately disbursing water all require special equipment. By simply reducing usage, the life of the equipment is extended which can mean thousands of dollars saved. In municipalities where the water supply is scarce, the importance of getting the most out of every gallon can’t be overstated.
