E-115 is a complex liquid, polymer based emulsion, designed to enhance the capability of water, and create an extremely effective firefighting tool for all types of “Class A Fires”.
E-115 when blended with water at various ratios (depending on the desired film thickness) will minimize either direct or radiant heat transfer to adjoining surfaces. E-115 can be used on structural fires as well as fire breaks to aid firefighters in slowing the progression of a fire front. E-115 can be used to extinguish Class A Fires without using as much water as would normally be necessary. E-115 has been tested to be non-toxic, non-corrosive, and safe for the environment.
In the western United States and Canada, this technology is marketed under the name of FIREWALL ll, and is used to fight wildland fires both on the ground and in the air by dropping blended gel from helicopters and fixed wing aircraft.
