PHOS-CHeK Insul-8 is a highly effective structural fire protection and suppression gel; with enhanced coverage and superior adherence qualities.
Developed for over four years, this new technology, liquid concentrate product is targeted specifically for Municipal and Industrial Fire Departments for use as a Structural Protection tool; where flame and/or heat impingement is an issue. With a single application, PHOS-CHeK Insul-8 will protect buildings, tanks, and other structures from adjacent fires for several hours.
PHOS-CHeK Insul-8 can be effectively applied in coatings several inches in thickness on most vertical surfaces with little or no slumping. This creates a safe barrier, an actual wall of water, against any, hear or flame, for a prolonged period of time. This is an ideal fire protection medium for hazardous storage facilities and other industrial applications.
Although principally designed for structural protection, PHOS-CHeK Insul-8 is also effective for direct fire suppression. Inducted directly into the water stream, Insul-8 will multiply the effectiveness of the water by eliminating runoff and improving adherence to the burning structure.
PHOS-CHeK Insul-8 is a liquid concentrate product, that is added to water at the required mixed ratio, either by eduction, liquid proportioning devices or batch mixer.
Effectively mixed ratios are between 0.37% and 3% depending on the application.
