About Us

Nochar was founded and incorporated in 1986 to market a new “State-Of-The-Art” fire retardant, now known as Nochar’s Fire Preventer (NFP).

Nochar dedicated itself to helping to solve the fire safety problem in the United States and around the world through research and development, education and applied technology. Since 1986, Nochar has written countless articles on fire safety and has spoken before such groups as the Defense Department’s Fire Protection Association and various other military groups in and outside the Pentagon, the American Risk Management Association, state fire fighters associations around the country, state and local building inspectors associations, and building code officials organizations.

PROBLEM SOLVING THROUGH APPLIED SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING is “Nochar’s number one asset” offered to its Distribution System and their customers. Nochar’s Products, are the tools resulting from the problem solving process. Nochar’s growing Distribution System includes individuals and companies with multitudes of expertise in widely varying disciplines which are and can be brought to bear on problems. Through synergistic cooperation and the network of consulting engineers that has been developed by Nochar, it is able to continuously develop new industry-leading Products and Technology from within its System.

THE NOCHAR PRODUCT LINE has been assembled to meet very rigid standards.

Each Product must be state-of-the-art and represent a window of technology. A window of technology is an improvement over any known similar product or technology. Each Product must also be environmentally friendly and pose no health threat. Nochar’s fire safety products now include fire retardants, fire resistive coatings, both permanent and temporary, fire suppressant gels, thermal block coatings, heat scavengers, and suppressant systems.

In 1991, Nochar introduced its environmental safety products such as, spill reponse and stablization products for hydrocarbons, acids, caustics, bodily fluids, hydrocarbon sludges and various nuclear liquid byproducts.

THE NOCHAR PRODUCTS include Fire Safety, Environmental Protection (“EPP”) and Nuclear technology.

The Fire Safety Products include compounds effective on natural fibers, as well as gels and pastes that can be used on synthetic materials or metals. Each of the “EPP” products is an invaluable tool in preventing, containing and remediating hazardous chemical or bodily fluid spills or continuous contamination. In 1997, Nochar began working with the U.S. Department of Energy (D.O.E.) to solidify dangerous radioactive liquid waste left over from the Cold War. Nochar polymers since the 1st successful solidification project, in which radioactive tritium oil was bonded, immobilized and shipped to Nevada for long term burial. Nochar polymers have been used to solidify and bond some of t he most dangerous radioactive liquid waste at nuclear sites all over the United States as well as sites all over the world. Nochar polymers create a very strong mechanical bond as well as immobilizing waste on a molecular level. Once bonded, the new solid waste form is far safer and more stable for long term burial than any surface collecting adsorbent, which was a standard method used worldwide in the paste. Waste which is contained in an absorbent polymer matrix, will not release under pressure or long term storage.

NOCHAR has participated in fire-razing of buildings for training fire fighters in New Hampshire, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Illinois, California, Washington, and Texas.
