FIREADE AFFF FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is FireAde AFFF effective on all Classes of fire?
No - FireAde 2000 is not effective on Class "C" fires involving electricity owing to the fact that there normally isn't a way to extinguish an electrical fire other than shutting off the electricity.
Is the Fire Extinguisher effective on Class "A" fires?
Yes - FireAde AFFF extinguishes the fire by rapidly penetrating the object reducing the radiant heat. When applied to a hot or burning object, the object can be cooled to the point that it no longer supports re-ignition. The ability to prevent re-ignition is useful in widely diverse situations, including and not limited too: Wood, Paper, Fabric, Cotton, Plastic and Rubber Products.
Is the fire extinguisher effective on Class "B" fires?
Yes - FireAde AFFF extinguishes Class "B" fires by rapidly interacting with the Class "B" liquids attacking the Fuel, Heat and Free Radicals; significantly cooling the liquid to the point that re-ignition is no longer a threat. FireAde will also render flammable liquids non-flammable.
Why is FireAde AFFF so effective on Class A and B fires?
FireAde AFFF attacks the Heat, Fuel, Oxygen, & Free Radicals of the Fire Tetrahedron. Traditional fire extinguishers only attack the oxygen side of the Fire Tetrahedron.
Note: In layman's terms, Free Radicals are the actual unburned gases that release from a fire giving smoke it's black appearance and allowing the fire to grow in temperature. Unlike traditional extinguish agents that only attack the oxygen, FireAde 2000 is able to extinguish the fire faster and more effective because it can to attack all sides of the Fire Tetrahedron.
Is there any health risk in using the Fire Extinguisher?
No - FireAde AFFF is water base with a pH of 7.3 (water being 7).

Yes - FireAde AFFF rapidly cools burning objects preventing re-ignition.
How does FireAde AFFF "cool" the fire so rapidly?
FireAde AFFF proprietary formulation is able to cool the fire rapidly by covering more surface area and at the same time penetrating deep down into pores of the material removing the heat.
Note:Traditional Dry Powder Chemical fire extinguishers only displace the oxygen feeding the fire and do nothing to remove the heat from the material. They only cover the surface of the material burning.
Does the fire extinguisher have any effect on the poisonous and toxic smoke?
Yes - FireAde AFFF quickly attacks many poisonous and potentially fatal toxins that are frequently present in dense smoke upon contact with fire. Visibility is significantly increased.
If I have spilled fuel in my garage, can I spray FireAde AFFF onto the spill to prevent ignition?

Yes - FireAde AFFF is very simple to clean up. FireAde AFFF breaks up sooty, greasy and oily residue leaving a clean surface after use. No scrubbing or other special cleaning efforts are required to remove FireAde 2000.
Caution: Under certain fire and heat conditions, the Dry Powder Chemicals will cause damage or prove extremely difficult to remove from oven surfaces, including self-cleaning models. Improper use of Dry Powder Chemicals could cause serious bodily injury or property damage. Note: The next time you see a Dry Powder Chemical extinguisher in the store, look at the picture of it being sprayed in the kitchen. The spray pattern is not real. Its computer generated! The manufactures of Dry Powder Chemical extinguishers obviously know the damage and mess that it will cause.
Is the FireAde AFFF effective on Class "C" (Electrical) fires?
No - FireAde AFFF will not extinguish electrical fires. To extinguish Class "C" fires you first have to turn off the electricity. Once the electricity has been turned off, in most cases you will then be fighting a Class "A" fire and FireAde AFFF is highly effective for Class "A" fires.
