Commonly answered questions


BLAZETAMER380TM is a water-enhancing elastomer designed for deployment by aircraft – both fixed and rotary wing – to suppress wildfires quickly and safely. The product can also be used in ground engines by applying the recommended dosage to the water and agitating for a few minutes. Recirculating through the pump will yield the best results. BLAZETAMER380™ has been closely scrutinized by testing authorities globally, including the US Forest Service.

What does BLAZETAMER380TM contain and how does it work?

BLAZETAMER380™ is a liquid concentrate water enhancer that contains a mix of polymers, surfactants, water and other ingredients that are combined to create an environmentally friendly solution that is non-toxic, non-corrosive and biodegradable.  BLAZETAMER380™ concentrate is diluted with water at very small concentrations, from0.2%-0.65%.  Even at the highest rate of only 6.5 liters per 1,000 litres of water, it is significantly lower than other fire suppressants and retardants that can be mixed as high as 15%, or 150 liters per 1,000 liters of water. Non-enhanced water suppresses fires as energy from the fire is absorbed. BLAZETAMER380™ makes water up to three times more effective for fire suppression since polymers link water molecules, resulting in significantly more absorption of energy from the fire. The strong molecular bonds also reduce evaporative loss and enhance drop characteristics of the suppressant by reducing drift.

What wildfire conditions are viable for the use of BLAZETAMER380TM?

Due to the powerful effect of BLAZETAMER380TM as a water-enhancing elastomer, weather conditions such as excessive heat, smoke, wind, or other localised weather events have far less impact on BLAZETAMER380TM than other fire control methods. BLAZETAMER380TM is suitable and optimal for use in any weather conditions to improve safety and reduce risks for firefighters. At the same time, having the greatest impact on wildland fires in the shortest timeframe. For more information on the efficacy of BLAZETAMER380TM in difficult weather scenarios, explore our training modules.

How do I mix BLAZETAMER380TM?

BLAZETAMER380TM is easy to use and quick to prepare. In the simplest firefighting scenarios, simply mixing the required amount of concentrate with water and recirculating it with a pump will provide the correct solution to achieve the results desired. In more complex, time-sensitive, or high-stakes scenarios, BLAZETAMER380TM can be injection mixed directly into supply lines or aboard aerial or ground-based firefighting vehicles for the most optimal results. Refer to our training modules to understand which blending method is best for your operation or situation.
