Testing

Testcorp-Toxicity Data sheet October 2007

Our initial testing has verified that we can produce a thin fireproof barrier. We can produce a non-burning aircraft interior panel that inhibits the formation of smoke and toxins generated by fires.

In March of 2003, Ford arranged for a Taxicab Fleet Durability Evaluation. The Desert Cab Company of Las Vegas, operating Ford Crown Victoria cabs with 4.6 liter V8 engines, was selected for the evaluation of 40 exhaust FRE Seal manifold gaskets. As of today, several cabs are still running with documented durability of 350,000 miles (the requirement is 150,000) without incident.

Jasper Engine Rebuilders were provided with tubes of FRE-Sealant which was used to form exhaust manifold “O” ring gaskets for durability runs on Ford 460 V8 co-generator truck engines which ran for over 6000 hours, the equivalent of over 400,000 miles on methane fired engines. Methane fires hotter than fossil fuel.
