Use of aqueous solutions of water glass to extinguish fires

Abstract

The use of an aqueous solution containing 5 - 10% water glass to extinguish fires is validated. As water evaporates from the solution on the combustion surface, water glass forms a viscoplastic insulating film, which under the action of high temperature foams and forms a porous insulting layer from the inorganic foam.
