Jeff Bonkoski of Hazard Control Technologies, Inc. presented training of area firefighters on the benefits and uses of F-500, an encapsulating agent that can be effectively used on Class A, Class B and Class D fires as well as lithium battery fires and magnesium fires. It also can be used to encapsulate fuel spills, rendering them nonflammable. He later demonstrated the encapsulation feature of the product by creating a water/gasoline /F-500 emulsion, then trying unsuccessfully to light it with a blow torch.
