FlameOut is the only UL Classified wetting agent for Class A & B fires that is also USDA Forestry Services 5100-307 approved.

FlameOut is unique in the way it attacks the fire in 3 distinctive ways:

  1. FlameOut encapsulates the Oxygen to effectively starve the fire.
  2. FlameOut chemically shears the hydrocarbon strings, rendering the fuel source inert.
  3. FlameOut ‘wets’ the water, increasing its cooling and penetrative properties.

Over 16 years in development, FlameOut when mixed at between 1 – 10% concentration, is a certified SNAP replacement for Halon 1211, and is a safe and friendly alternative to AFFF.

The chemical is non-toxic, non-corrosive and leaves no residue. As a result, any mess or clean up time and cost is considerably reduced.

As the product is 100% rapidly bio degradable, accidental spillage or entry into the waste water system presents no hazard to persons, animals or plant life. Flameout is the only surfactant approved by the ERA for both commercial and residential applications.

FlameOut can be used in portable appliances and may be applied via pumping apparatus, reservoirs or directly into the hose lines via conventional dispensing equipment.

By reducing the amount of water required for a given fire, resultant loss or damage to property may also be reduced, as well as preserving an increasingly valuable resource.

FlameOut is widely used by the fire industry supplied nationwide in US Domestic and industrial portable extinguishers, and is in trials with the US Navy. Flameout is also undergoing certification to FAA minimum performance standards as a Halon replacement for hand held extinguishers on commercial passenger aircraft.

FlameOut is the result of extensive patented research and development by BioGenesis Enterprises Inc.

FlameOut™ in Action

  • Encapsulates the oxygen to effectively ‘eat’ the fire
  • Breaks the hydrocarbon strings to render the fuel inert
  • ‘Wets’ the water increasing its cooling & penetration properties
  • Acts as a ‘scrubber’ knocking smoke & soot to the ground
  • Makes water up to 7 times more effective
