Xpyro Oy introduces innovative non-toxic and environmentally friendly fire retardants for preventing forest fires and wildfires. Our innovative products reflect our intensive investment in fire safety R&D.

Our innovative fire retardants offer a fast and efficient way to prevent wildfires and forest fires in an active and proactive way. Thanks to our fire retardants, innovative unforeseen firefighting strategies can be applied.

Xpyro’s fire retardants are ready-to-use, liquid, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. They leave no harmful residues in nature nor cause any side effects.

THE SOLUTION FOR A GLOBAL NEED

Forest fires and wildfires are a major global problem causing high costs, personal injuries and large-scale evacuations every year. Both direct and indirect costs of a forest fire or wildfire are usually high. In addition to damage to property, wildfires may cause irreparable damage to the ecosystem of the area. Growing forests are an important carbon sink, which means that wildfires have a negative impact on climate change.

Climate change, in turn, increases the prevalence of wildfires and their aggressiveness. Therefore, increasingly severe wildfires can be expected over the coming years. This means that the requirements, needs and costs of fire prevention will continue to increase.

NEW, INNOVATIVE ALTERNATIVES TO FIREFIGHTING

Xpyro’s new fire retardants offer a solution to many current and future challenges in firefighting. Thanks to our fire retardants, safer, faster and more efficient firefighting techniques, which are not available when using traditional firefighting methods, can be used.

Xpyro’s fire retardants can be used to rapidly create an effective chemical firebreak to limit the fire or prevent it from progressing. Our fire retardants can also be used to protect areas and sites susceptible to fire, as the retardant will retain its ability to prevent fires for several weeks in ideal conditions. The new retardants are also more effective in extinguishing smouldering fires deep in the soil, such as peat fires.

We are looking for domestic and international partners and pilot customers. Contact us now! We will be happy to tell you more about our firefighting solutions.

Xpyro firefighting agents

Fire retardant for surface fires
  • A liquid fire retardant used for fighting forest fires and wildfires by spreading the fire retardant on the ground to create a pre-planned firebreak. The fire retardant can also be used for aerial firefighting.
  • Our fire retardants can also be used to protect areas and sites susceptible to fire, as the retardant will retain its ability to prevent fires in vegetation and terrain for several weeks in ideal conditions.
  • The fire retardant is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It leaves no harmful residues in nature nor does it cause any side effects. The flora in the area uses the remains of the fire retardant as a fertiliser.
  • No harmful emissions into the atmosphere.
Fire retardant for smouldering ground fires
  • Liquid retardant intended for extinguishing smouldering ground fires, such as peat fires, or fires smouldering in a thick layer of humus or in stumps, and preventing reignition.
  • Thanks to eliminated surface tension, the fire retardant penetrates deeply into soil, even in dry terrains. The retardant penetrates into peat or soil and suppresses fire and smouldering.
  • The fire retardant is non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It leaves no harmful residues in nature, nor does it cause any side effects. The flora in the area uses the remains of the fire retardant as a fertiliser.
  • No harmful emissions into the atmosphere.

Xpyro’s firefighting agents awarded the Finnish Security Award 2018 for the Security Innovation of the year.
