Gel is the only fire chemical to receive the prestigious “Champion Award” from
our nation’s E.P.A. We received this award for our industry-leading commitment
to use only a safe surfactant in our revolutionary fire gel formulation. EPA
defines safer surfactants as those that break down quickly to non-polluting
compounds. EPA states that Nonylphenol Ethoxylates, commonly referred to as
NPEs (found in other brands of fire gels), DO NOT MEET this definition. NPEs
and their breakdown products are toxic to aquatic life! BARRICADE FIRE GEL IS
THE ONLY LIQUID FIRE GEL CONCENTRATE THAT HAS BEEN APPROVED FOR USE BY THE U.S.
FOREST SERVICE THAT DOES NOT CONTAIN NPEs OR PETROLEUM DISTILLATES!
