Rapid, Targeted Ground Deployment of Fire Retardant

PHOS-CHEK® LC95W is ideal for rapid deployment ahead of fires and for potential fire events that are scheduled, including prescribed burns.

PHOS-CHEK LC95W creates a fire break by making wildland fuels non-flammable. It works even when dry, so a single application can offer long-term efficacy. It can be applied by fire engine, water tender, or with Perimeter Solutions’ custom Ground Applied equipment.
