JUPITER, FL / November 20, 2014 / GelTech Solutions, Inc. (GLTC), is proud to announce that FireIce received system and agent certification for On Board Fire Suppression System performance from SFI Foundation, Inc. (SFI). SFI is a non-profit organization, established to issue and administer standards for the quality assurance of specialty performance and racing equipment. The SFI Foundation has served the automotive aftermarket and the motorsports industry since 1978 and is supported by its sanctioning bodies which include virtually every organization affiliated with automotive racing in the world. Testing of the FireIce product and fire suppression system was completed this week at an SFI affiliated lab in Denver, Pennsylvania where FireIce excelled in testing performed to SFI specifications for both system and agent performance.
"We developed an innovative solution for a faster and more effective way to extinguish fires in race vehicles, using FireIce as the fire suppressing agent. The mixture of FireIce and water forms a gel that adheres to any surface providing a highly effective fire suppressant while also providing a protective shield to race vehicle occupants," stated Peter Cordani, GelTech Solution's chief technology officer and acting chief executive officer. "FireIce is both non-toxic and non-corrosive making it a driver and equipment friendly product that will revolutionize on board fire suppression systems for race vehicles."
As a result of the SFI certification, FireIce product delivery systems such as the onboard fire suppression system, the fire incident response vehicle skid unit and hand held fire protection equipment will soon be available for sale to racing facilities and automotive race teams in the United States and around the world.
