The New Fire Prevention Materials Using in the Coal Fire Zones-Foamed Gel
Coal fires are emerging as a global threat with significant economic, social and ecological impacts, besides the loss of energy resources those fires cause air and water pollution and emit enormous amounts of green house gases (carbon dioxide and methane), how to prevent and extinct the fires has been a worldwide issue. According to the respective limitation and characteristic of gel fire prevention materials and foam fire prevention materials, a new thinking of foamed gel coal fire prevention materials is put forward creatively. Foamed gel that includes the characteristic of gel and foam possessed the property of accumulation. It also has the performance of sealing and secluding oxygen. This paper describes the composition and characteristic of foamed gel, as well as the laboratory production process. For large coal fire zones, the new fire prevention materials (Foamed Gel) have a broad application prospect.
