Cold Fire is an environmentally friendly fire extinguishing agent that puts out ANY fire faster, safer, with less water, less damage to property, and less risk to firefighters. Cold Fire cools 21 times faster than water, and works to remove heat and the fuel sources from the fire tetrahedron, preventing reignition. Completely 'green' and non-toxic, Cold Fire puts out any Class A or B fire, hydrocarbons or polar solvents, as well as metals, tires, and asphalt. Also suppresses vapors and helps to remediate spills.

- Extinguishes fires (even oil and alcohol-based fires) quickly and on contact; effective on oil well and tanker fires, tire fires, fuel/ethanol fires, grass, brush and forest fires, and metal fires (including magnesium and aluminum)
- Cold Fire is ONE agent that can replace SEVERAL products
Cold Fire Applications
Cold Fire products are environmentally friendly fire extinguishing agents, leading the way in firefighting technology and revolutionizing the way firefighters combat fires. Cold Fire can be used to cool down hot surfaces rapidly for added safety and increased productivity. Cold Fire products can be used in various ways:
- Various types of wildfires; grass/scrub, brush, heavy timber and related applications
- Sawdust and slash fires
- Fire lines creation in wildfires
- Structure fires
- Structure protection from wildfires
- Cool-down of embers on firefighters and other protective applications
- Additional protection in controlled burns
- High oil content foliage, such as palmetto and cedar
- Tire fires
- Vehicle fires
- Paints and oil-based fires
- Auto fuel fires
- Fuel storage tanks close to fires (keeping them cool)
- Prevention of hot spot and fires from hot torch roofing applications
- Cool-down of equipment
- Protection of hazardous or explosive material from oncoming fires
- Creation of a heat barrier to help prevent heat damage and hidden fires
- Closed loop systems such as sprinkler systems and on-board extinguishing systems
Cold Fire - Cooling Capabilities
Cold Fire has an amazing ability to cool metal down 21 times faster than water, without 'shocking' or damaging the metal.
ITS Cooling Comparison Test
Each sample of material was heated to 500° using a hand torch, then sprayed with Cold Fire and water. The third element tested was ambient air.
The copper was heated and sprayed for 29.89 seconds. Cold Fire took 27 seconds to reach 87.378F. It took water 4 minutes, 30 seconds to reach 84.624F. It took air 11 minutes and 6 seconds to reach 95.994F. Our findings show that it took Cold Fire the least amount of time.
The sheet metal was heated and sprayed for 15.69 seconds. Cold Fire took 14 seconds to reach 84.522F. It took water 4 minutes, 50 seconds to reach 84.538F. It took air 9 minutes and 11 seconds to reach 90.872F. Our findings show that it took Cold Fire the least amount of time.
The glass was heated and sprayed for 23.47 seconds. Cold Fire took 31 seconds to reach 84.093F. It took water 2 minutes, 26 seconds to reach 85.821F. Note as the glass cooled after spraying with water the glass cracked.
The steel was heated and sprayed for 48.23 seconds. Cold Fire took 46 seconds to reach 88.894F. It took water 9 minutes, 17 seconds to reach 89.251F. It took air 8 minutes and 24 seconds to reach 109.25F. Our findings show that it took Cold Fire the least amount of time. Note that after the metal was sprayed, the heat went down, then came up in temperature slightly.
