Home of Eco-Gel™: The world's first certified, 100% plant-based alternative to toxic firefighting foam

Founded by firefighters seeking a safer solution

Eco-Gel™ is a patented plant-based concentrate, the first and only firefighting water additive that is non-toxic and biodegrabable.

The Unique “Nature” of Eco-Gel

  • The only gel that is UL listed and will effectively suppress both class A and B fires
  • This water additive makes a highly effective firefighting hydrogel when added to water
  • Overcomes the performance and environmental  limitations of foams, gels and retardants
  • Clings to vertical, horizontal and overhead surfaces protecting a safe egress path for firefighters
  • Fast acting application for use on structures wildland and urban Interface
  • Prevents extinguished fires from re-ignition

The FireRein Mission: Prevent, Protect, Extinguish
PREVENT: The easiest fire to fight is a fire that never happens. Eco-Gel™ functions as a short-term retardant when applied to grasses, brush, and wildland urban interface areas. On a large scale, a community threatened by an advancing wildfire can be protected by applying Eco-Gel™ to structures on the windward interface, to halt the creeping advance of the wildfire by depriving it of additional fuel. The layer of hydrogel is resilient to evaporation and completely safe for plant and animal biosystems. Its resistance to fire and certified 100% bio-based formula make Eco-Gel™ ideally suited for use when conducting prescribed burns. The Eco-Gel™ layer can be left in place after the threat of fire has passed, and it will naturally biodegrade.
The FireRein Mission: Prevent, Protect, Extinguish
PROTECT: It has been established for decades that firefighters are at increased risk of contracting occupational cancers. Some of these cancers are linked to exposure to chemicals within firefighting foam, such as PFAS. PFAS (Perfluoroalkyl and Perfluoroalkyl Substances) and other compounds containing fluorine are present in many of the foams and other water additives used by fire departments today. Eco-Gel™ is an equally, if not more, effective fire suppressant than toxic compounds. We have the ability to protect our firefighters, their families, and our precious environment through the responsible use of safe, certified 100% bio-based firefighting solutions. Eco-Gel™ by FireRein is the only such choice.

EXTINGUISH: Eco-Gel™ is listed by Underwriters Laboratories as a fire suppression agent. The extinguishing action of Eco-Gel™ on Class A fires is rapid and efficient, having been proven to be faster to knock down a structure fire than foam or water alone. The Stick & Spray property of Eco-Gel™ creates a resilient layer of hydrogel between flammable Class A surfaces, whether horizontal, vertical, or overhead, and the oxygen in the surrounding air. Being over 97% water, the gel layer also cools hot materials. By simultaneously cooling and smothering a Class A fire, extinguishment is achieved quickly with less water used, reduced runoff, and reduced water damage. When applied to a Class B fire, Eco-Gel™ emulsifies and/or encapsulates the flammable liquid, isolating the fuel and excluding oxygen. Extinguishment is rapid, and the spill will not reignite. Eco-Gel™ is effective on class B hydrocarbon fuels or polar solvents. No toxic or environmentally harmful products are introduced into the spill, and any runoff is in the foam of a viscous material which is more easily managed than a runoff liquid.
