Cold Fire is being used extensively in the oil fields of Mexico and other countries, because it has proven to be the most effective in putting out dangerous hydrocarbon fires. It is also gaining attention in the United Stated because of its ability to to extinguish polar solvent fires - ethanol, methanol and acetone, for example.
Since Cold Fire encapsulates the fuel sources at the molecular level, it not only snuffs the fire out quickly, with less product, but it also prevents reignition.
