In addition to its well-known product lineup of PHOS-CHeK® brand Long-term Fire Retardants, Class A Foams, and Gel Water Enhancers, we are pleased to offer a revolutionary new fuel gelling agent, FLASH 21, to wildland fire managers
Flash 21 is a two-part fuel gelling agent, which has proven to be very stable and effective in studies conducted by the US Forest Service. Flash 21 can be used with most commercially available fuels such as: unleaded petrol, diesel and Jet A1. Research has also shown improved gelling and ignition results under cold-weather conditions when compared to other fuel gelling agents available in today’s market.
Freezing of Flash 21A and B has no adverse effects on performance after it is thawed and subsequently mixed. Under cold weather conditions, it is recommended that a 10 – 25% blend of regular unleaded petrol is used when mixing Jet A1 and diesel fuels. On the opposite end of the temperature scale: high temperatures also appear to have no adverse effect on Flash 21 performance.
Users will appreciate the ease of mixing, the fast gelling rate, and the superior viscosity stability of Flash 21. Once gelled, there is no apparent viscosity loss over time caused by temperature fluctuations, or when using different types of fuels – users can plan their operations without having to fear that unexpected delays will impact the quality and performance of their gelled fuel.
Flash 21A and Flash 21B are packaged in one-litre plastic bottles. There are 6 bottles of each component in a case. Each case weighs 15.66 Kg.
It takes one bottle of Flash 21A and one bottle of Flash 21B to treat one 205-liter (55 US gallon) drum of fuel.
