Title of the Innovation: Fire Suppressing Gel

Brief About Innovation

A Fire Suppressing Gel (FSG) is a polymer-based mixture containing fire retardant inorganic material with swelling properties in water. It sticks on burning objects, prevents the water from running off or evaporating too quickly. By using FSG the extinguishment time and requirement of water quantity is reduced and the effectiveness of the applied water is increased by many times. Also laying of FSG lanes may prevent further spreading of fire.

Technical specifications:

  • Particle size range: less than 1 mm
  • Application quantity: 0.6 % (w/v) of total water
  • Water holding capacity: 200-400 g distilled water / g of FSG 100-200 g tap water/ g of FSG

Performance Parameters:

  • Reduction in fire extinguishing time: 50 %
  • Reduction in water requirement: 50 %
  • Shelf life: 5 years
