F.A.Q.

Q: What is in that magic tube?

BlazeCut contains HFC-236FA.  

HFC-236FA is a fire extinguishing agent.  It is listed as an acceptable Halon replacement in the EPA SNAP Program for Halon 1211 in portable fire extinguishers and local application systems. HFC-236FA is noncorrosive, electrically nonconductive, free of residue, and has an ODP of zero. It is ideally suited for protecting highvalue equipment such as in computer rooms, telecommunication facilities, and aircraft.  More information can be found here on HFC-236FA in DuPont's brochure and MSDS.

 

Q: How does Blazecut work?

Quite simply!  The BlazeCut tube is heat sensitive.  When it reaches a sustained 248*F a hole is melted in the tube forming the nozzle and releasing the HFC-236FA.  The HFC-236FA reacts with the oxygen in the air, removing the oxygen and absorbing the heat.  The area is cooled and fire starved of the air it needs to burn.

 

Q: Why shouldn’t I just buy a fire extinguisher?

You should have a fire extinguisher FIRST!  Fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems are two different products.  We always suggest you buy a quality fire extinguisher for your car, mounted within easy reach of the driver.  Not only can you put out a fire in your car with a hand held fire extinguisher, you can use it to save some one else!  Buy a BlazeCut for another layer of defense that works automatically, and is on guard 24x7!  Unlike a fire extinguisher, BlazeCut works by itself!

 

Q: How long does it last?

BlazeCut is a single use product thats lasts up to 10 years depending on application and environment.  

 

Q: What is Blazecut rated?

BlazeCut is ABC rated.

 

Q: What size BlazeCut should I order?

Remember, for BlazeCut to work best it needs to be in a mostly enclosed area.  The more open to the outside the less efficient it is.
