FireIce (patent pending) is a fire suppressant compound used for direct attack of fires as well as a medium - term retardant for structure protection such as manholes and utility poles. FireIce can be used in all types of apparatus: fire extinguishers, pumper trucks, aerial units for wildfires and home defense units for personal home protection.
GelTech has recently developed the patent pending Emergency Manhole FireIce Delivery System (EMFIDS) which is an innovative system designed to deliver a mixture of FireIce and water into a manhole in order to coat the ladder and the utility worker in the event of an incident involving an explosion or fire in the manhole while utility workers are performing routine repairs or maintenance.
GelTech also markets Soil2O which is both a non-toxic soil conditioner and a dust abatement product. Soil2O "Dust Control" products and solutions stop all types of particulate matter from entering the air and water, solving even the most stubborn dust control problems. Soil2O Granular and Topical blends reduce water consumption up to 50% and promote healthy root development in plants and lawns, generating faster seed germination by keeping nutrients and moisture at the root level longer.
GelTech's newest product solution is GT-W14, an advanced absorbency technology to control fluid spills of all sizes, turning liquids into solid waste for easier and safer disposal. GT-W14 is highly effective on both dense and porous surfaces, and its advanced absorbency technology absorbs liquids much faster than traditional spill absorbent products. In independent laboratory testing, GT-W14 also reduced the hazardous chemical rating of multiple industrial fluids, oils, and chemicals that it was applied to and neutralized the PH of several acids and bases with no adverse chemical reactions on any of the fluids tested.
