New Chemistry Science Video on Fire Retardants

Perimeter Solutions Collaborates with American Chemical Society and PBS Digital Studios

ST. LOUIS, MO – Perimeter Solutions, the global leader in the production of fire retardants, foams, and water enhancing gels, along with a wide range of services for managing wildland, industrial, municipal, and military fires, today announced the company recently collaborated with the American Chemical Society (ACS) and PBS Digital Studios on the ACS digital media-based show REACTIONS.

As many wildland fire community experts know, there is much misinformation in the marketplace about what are fire retardants, how are they used and where they are used. The new video on fire retardants puts the science in an easy to understand and fun form.

Perimeter Solutions recently collaborated with the American Chemical Society (ACS) and PBS Digital Studios on the ACS digital media-based show REACTIONS. REACTIONS uncovers the science of chemistry and how chemistry is all around us.

The program is web based https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/reactions.html and has an active following on YouTube (over 500K views) in addition to select social media channels such as Twitter and Facebook (290K+ Likes). The video can be viewed below.

A special note of appreciation to Perimeter Solutions Chris Thompson, US Airbase Manager for leading the company effort to provide samples of PHOS-CHEK® fire retardant, technical product information and guidance to the producers at ACS/PBS.
