Too many families have suffered severe burns from flash fires, vapor explosions, or flame jetting. This could happen to anyone at anytime!
There is a simple solution to this known problem: Flame arresters. Flame arresters prevent horrific burns by acting as a barrier, stopping the flame and quenching the detonation process. They’ve been in use for 200 years! Flame arresters work; flame barriers are very effective prevention.
- We are calling on manufacturers of flammable liquids to switch to flame arresters on all containers. We want barrier protection to prevent burn injuries. It’s as simple as adding a 5¢ Safety Feature, a screen or filter, that prevents horrific burns.
- We want special use and handling precautions better communicated. By working together, we can educate the public about the risks and safeguards with all types of flammable liquids.
- We want barrier protection for consumers- at home, in labs, and in schools. On every bottle, every can, and every container.
