INFORMATION - Fire Test

DustBloc is a non-flammable substance. One of the questions frequently asked about DustBloc is:

“If a water cart is loaded with a DustBloc dilution and is called upon to fight a fire, will DustBloc affect this?”

We have undertaken a sample test that shows diluted DustBloc putting out a chemical fire more effectively than water.

DustBloc is a bitumen compound diluted at 40:1 in the water truck. The bulk of the dilution is therefore water. A simple test was conducted to check the effect of the DustBloc dilution poured onto a fire compared to straight water.

Test - A metal baking tray was used.

  • 50ml of Kerosene was added to the tray and ignited & left to burn for 30 seconds to build up enough heat for the kerosene to boil.
  • 500ml of DustBloc dilution was then poured into the tray. The fire was extinguished.

The tray was cleaned and the test repeated.

  • 500ml of water was poured into the tray. At first the fire slowed but soon return to it’s original intensity.
Conclusion - The results of this simple test indicate that the DustBloc is not flammable and would be safe to use in an emergency situation.

The test showed the DustBloc retarded the fire but more comprehensive testing would be required before this could be established.
