JUPITER, Fla., Oct. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GelTech Solutions Inc. (OTCBB:GLTC), creators of FireIce, a revolutionary water enhancing fire suppressant that has the potential to change current firefighting techniques globally, announced today that the company was informed by the US Forest Service that only four (4) tests remain in order to be listed on the Qualified Product List (QPL).

 

 

According to a US Forrest Service spokesperson, "FireIce is successfully moving through the testing process and all reported results are acceptable to the USFS to ensure compliance with Specification 5100-306A which is necessary to achieve its QPL listing."

 

 

Michael Cordani, CEO of GelTech Solutions stated, "FireIce continues to perform as expected. Gaining the United States Forest Service 'stamp of approval' would be a significant inflection point for FireIce and our Company. Being listed on the Forest Service 'QPL' would allow us to assist with large scale wildfires in the United States, and around the world. We believe that FireIce is a valuable tool for putting out wildfires." Cordani added that "the Company has successfully independently completed the remaining tests being done by the US Forest Service and we expect the same outcome with the US Forest Service".
