FORTRESS FR-100 is our first generation aerial dry powder long-term retardant, with a medium viscosity rating and fugitive coloring. FORTRESS FR-100 has successfully completed all of the required US Forest Service Laboratory tests for fire retardancy effectiveness, toxicity, anti-corrosion, stability, and viscosity making it the first newly formulated long-term retardant product to make it onto the Forest Service's Qualified Products List (QPL) in over two decades. FORTRESS FR-100 has also passed the operational field evaluation (OFE) and is fully qualified for use.
FORTRESS FR-100 features our unique magnesium chloride formulation, which means that it's more effective, safer for the environment, and more durable than conventional, fertilizer-based retardants.
Exceeded performance standards on every official USFS lab test.
Designed for dry bulk storage and dry base operations.
Engineered for stronger fire barriers and superior fire control. Qualified for use with large airtankers, Very Large Air Tankers (VLATs), Single Engine Air Tankers (SEATS), and helicopters.
Gum-thickened medium viscosity for improved drop characteristics.
Visible coloring fades over time when exposed to sunlight.
Self-hydrating when humidity exceeds 35%, enabling better fuel coverage, more effective fire suppression, and extended durability.
Not a fertilizer, does not contribute to the growth of flammable vegetation or freshwater eutrophication, does not contain any biocides, and is significantly less toxic to fish.
Corrosion inhibitor package minimizes corrosion on steel, brass and aluminum, making it safe for use around steel utility infrastructure.
