Woolsey Fire destroys most of the homes in Latigo Canyon in Malibu. Two are saved by deployment of installed FS-PG Sprinkler System
Houston, Texas, Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NEWMEDIAWIRE – FLAME SEAL PRODUCTS, INC. (OTC PINK:FLMP) a leading provider of Specialty Chemicals for the Passive Fire Protection Market today issues the following new report:
Flame Seal Products, Inc. (FSP) wildfire products FS-PG (Perimeter Guard) provided real-world proof of effectiveness in the devastating California Woolsey Wildfire.
The dramatically increasing incidence and severity of California wildfires demands effective protection for life and property caught in the path of these rapidly expanding infernos such as the Woolsey fire. For almost two weeks, this blaze spread to 97,000 acres, consumed 1,643 structures, killing three and destroying hundreds of high-end homes in Malibu. Fortunately, a farsighted homeowner in Latigo Canyon, who had installed a FS-PG sprinkler system, deployed the system which covered his house and grounds, as well as enough overspray on an adjacent neighbor’s house to save it. FS-PG protected the homes, a car parked outside, and even the portion of his landscaping covered by the retardant while all surrounding structures beyond the Perimeter Guard sprayed area were destroyed. This reported information comes from onsite inspection by Flame Seal’s Dylan Nowak and Ron Hodgson, our California Wildfire expert consultant.
This was the second major wildfire where Flame Seal’s technology was employed and prevented the wildfire from destroying a home. The first was the widely reported save in Big Sur last year. https://www.ksbw.com/article/big-sur-woman-reveals-how-she-saved-home-from-soberanes-fire/10332920
All this provides additional proof, that FS-PG works under extreme conditions to save property and possessions. The technology can be applied to prevent the devastating effects to structures in wildfire prone areas. Without wildfire protection, such as Perimeter Guard, these areas may become extremely dangerous and uninsurable. Millions of Californians are in harm’s way in what is known as the wildland/urban interface (WUI). Flame Seal’s FX-WF and FS-PG installations and products should be a major part of the solution to prevent the loss of life and whole neighborhoods such as Malibu, Paradise, Redding and Santa Rosa in 2017.
The FS-PG fire retardant can be applied in several ways. If investing in a storage and sprinkler distribution system is prohibitive, the product may be applied around the perimeter of your home with a simple backpack sprayer available at local hardware stores.

WFPS plans to expand marketing efforts for FX-WF and FS-PG storage and delivery systems in wildfire prone areas.
FS-PG™ Perimeter Guard is a proprietary powder designed for dilution in water and applied as a passive fire retardant to the natural areas surrounding the perimeter of homes and other landscaped areas. Unlike other common fire retardants, FS-PG™ is a stable, non-separating solution, always ready for deployment. The product is applied to dry grasses, brush, wood and other cellulose type material, with minimal effect on the environment. The product has been developed to protect the ignition zone outside of the perimeters of structures or landscaped areas during wildfires.
The product is a passive fire retardant and can be applied at the beginning of the fire season and will remain in place and effective unless rained upon or otherwise exposed to water. When areas treated with FS-PG™ are exposed to fire or extreme heat, the vegetation or wood forms a carbon-char, which interferes with combustion and prevents fire propagation.
FX-WF™ is a single component, non-permanent, ready to use, fire protective coating. It is designed for application to structures in the immediate path of a wildfire. It can be applied up to several days, depending upon conditions, before the arrival of a fire. On exposure to fire, FX-WF™ produces thick intumescent foam, which acts as a heat and fire barrier, protecting the underlying structure. The coating “swells up” nearly 100 times in thickness when the heat of a fire approaches, therefore protecting and insulating the structure from the fire. By using FX-WF™, the chances the structure will survive greatly increases.
