  • GelTech Solutions, Inc. (GLTC) Gains Approval From US Forest Service For FireIce 0 comments
    May 3, 2012 3:23 PM | about stocks: GLTC

    GelTech Solutions creates innovative, eco-friendly, cost-effective products that help industry, agriculture, and the general public achieve environmental and safety goals. Two of the company's inventions are FireIce, a revolutionary water enhancing fire suppressant that has the potential to change current firefighting techniques and Soil2O Dust Control, an environmentally-safe and cost-effective solution for airborne dust control.

    The company today announced that the US Forest Service gave approval of blanket purchase agreements which provide the framework and pricing under which it may, at its discretion, process purchase orders for GelTech products. The GelTech products and mobile retardant bases will be used in support of aerial firefighting operations for all land-based aircraft used by the Forest Service as well as in support of ground attack operations on wildfires on any federal or state lands.

    The purchase agreements with the US Forest Service are in the words of the president of GelTech, Joseph Ingarra, "a significant milestone for the company." It means GelTech has been approved to provide product mixing services for any-sized aircraft - from single engine air tankers that carry 800 gallons of water to very large air tankers that carry 10,000 gallons of water or more; not to mention providing these services to ground operations also.

    GelTech no doubt won the contract thanks to its impressive results in aerial drop demonstrations. Aerial firefighters were impressed with FireIce because it reduces the payload weight, allowing them to carry larger volumes per drop. And since FireIce is non-corrosive, it reduces aircraft maintenance costs.
