FSI-AerialAttack

Product Name: FSI-AerialAttack

This product can be used in very small concentrations of between 0.1% to 0.6% to water for aerial firebombing.  When added to water the product acts as a suppressant for direct attack against wildfire. The product is a non-coloured liquid concentrate that is non-toxic, safe for humans and the environment as well as being non-corrosive for aircraft and aircraft firebombing equipment. Once mixed with water the chemistry of the product has the effect of reducing the tendency of some of the dropped water to turn into a mist and drift away from the fire target.  Consequently more water hits the target reducing the overall number of firebombing sorties needed to fight wildfire and increasing the safety height that water firebombing can be done at.  Unlike other water enhancers, FSI-AerialAttack contains zero hydrocarbons and is believed to be the most environmentally safe water enhancer for aerial firebombing available.
