FIREBLOCK Agri is a compound of Potassium polyacrylate, starches AND binding agents, which is used to protect from, and extinguish, Class A fires (i.e. ordinary solid combustibles such as paper, wood, cloth and some plastics).
NOT FOR USE ON ELECTRICAL OR CHEMICAL FIRES.
FIREBLOCK Agri is not chemical in composition, and is non-toxic and 100% biodegradable, ensuring that it is environmentally friendly.
FIREBLOCK Agri is supplied in powder form (100 g sachets and 1,25 kg resealable bags). The powder is then mixed with water as per the instructions on the packaging, until a reaction occurs, and a consistency similar to a gel-like substance is achieved.
Thereafter, FIREBLOCK Agri is sprayed over the target area (which is either an area that needs protection from an approaching fire, or an area that is currently burning). Numerous layers of FIREBLOCK Agri are formed over the area. In order for the heat to penetrate the FIREBLOCK-covered area, it has to burn off layer after layer of protective gel. The thicker the surface area is sprayed, the more protection FIREBLOCK Agri supplies. General coverage achieved, is 12-15 m2 per litre of mixed FIREBLOCK Agri.
FIREBLOCK Agri can provide thermal protection from fire for extended periods, depending on fire conditions and thickness sprayed. The period of protection can range from 6-36 hours, depending the thickness sprayed, as well as environmental factors like sunshine and rain.
