JUPITER, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2013) - GelTech Solutions, Inc. (OTCBB: GLTC) (OTCQB: GLTC), creators of FireIce, a revolutionary water enhancing fire suppressant that has the potential to change current firefighting techniques, announced today that it has performed additional FireIce product demonstrations and participated in the ISAF Fire trade show in Turkey. This trade show showcases the many facets of firefighting, fire protection, health and safety.
The ISAF Fire trade show, held annually, was attended by representatives from GelTech's FireIce Turkish distributor, Nano Girisim, Ltd. Sti. (SET Fire) who, along with GelTech's U.S based trainers, met with government fire officials from the Middle East and Europe. The trade show, demonstrations, and our relationship with SET Fire identified a number of potential new industrial uses for FireIce.
SET Fire introduced GelTech to the Industrial Fire Chief who endorsed FireIce for use in Turkey's industrial sector. He will be communicating its efficacy and presenting data collected during their demonstrations to the Turkish Minister of Commerce. During the first demonstration, SET Fire and GelTech had Fire Chiefs in all districts of Istanbul Itfaiye (Istanbul fire departments) in attendance. Kocaeli Itfaiye, another city in Turkey, hosted 8 additional area departments.
FireIce also conducted demonstrations with the Antalya Organize Sanayi Bölgesi Itfaiye (industrial fire brigades) which provided personnel and fire trucks so FireIce would be better equipped to demonstrate the product in front of several large industrial manufacturing companies.
"The overwhelming support we received from the Turkish Itfaiye as well as representatives from the Turkish government further validates our product's use in many situations," stated CEO Michael Cordani. "Our team of U.S. based trainers supported the efforts of SET Fire who coordinated and financed the series of successful demonstrations and will continue to support SET Fire as they pursue the potential new uses for FireIce in Turkey and other international cities."
