PHOS-CHeK LC95 Fire Retardant
Phos-Chek LC95 fire retardants are concentrated liquids that mix readily with water by recirculation, agitation or with mechanical or electronic Phos-Chek liquid proportioning systems. Phos-Chek LC95 fire retardant solutions are the only liquid concentrate (LC) ammonium polyphosphate retardants that offer both the ease of mixing and handling of a liquid and the aerial drop advantages of a gum-thickened retardant. The elastic nature of the thickener in Phos-Chek retardants reduces drift, dispersion and evaporation and facilitates increased fuel coverage, wrap around and penetration through canopy and ladder fuels to ground vegetation. Recovery can exceed 90%.
Phos-Chek LC95 is available in red iron oxide (R), fugitive (F) color, and uncolored (W). The fugitive color maintains visibility during application, but slowly fades after exposure to sunlight. LC95A-R is available as low viscosity or medium viscosity. Medium viscosity is ideal for higher altitude drops or where higher coverage levels are desired.
Phos-Chek fire retardants are used for wildland fire control in forest, brush or grassland. Functionally, Phos-Chek retardants react with and alter the thermal decomposition of wildland fuels so that they do not support flaming or glowing combustion. PHOS-CHeK LC95 is available in bulk trucks, 260 gal. totes, 30 and 55 gal. drums and 5 gal. pails. Special package sizes available.
