USDA Forest Service Approved! FireIce® Polar EcoFoam is designed for a broad range of WUI, Wildand and Class A Fire applications, including where cold-water mixing of Class A foam is required.
Biodegradable and non-hazardous, FireIce® Polar EcoFoam is free of fluorinated surfactants.
In low percentage applications (.01-.05%), Polar EcoFoam acts like "wet water", breaking the surface tension without excessive foaming, extending the water's ability to wet, penetrate and absorb heat. On hard-to-wet fuels like peat, duff and vertical surfaces, Polar EcoFoam's adhesion prevents the shedding of water and soaks fuels at a controlled rate. Polar EcoFoam is environmentally friendly, biodegradable, and non-hazardous. It is safe to use in ecologically sensitive areas.
