Metallurgy Metallurgy

High current, high temperatures and corrosive chemicals are all potential burn-causing agents present in the metallurgy industry. Foundries operate at high temperatures to melt metal into a liquid that can then be cast. Aluminum hash is separated from impurities using a high current, which can cause electrical burns but also heat burns. Corrosive chemicals are often found in foundries as well.

BurnFree can be used on chemical burns, electrical burns, and burns from thermal contact. For use on chemical burns, the affected area should be rinsed thoroughly, then BurnFree can be applied to cool the burn and stop the progression of injury. Because it is not oil based, BurnFree is ideal for use on chemical burns.

For widespread bodily injury, BurnFree blankets are helpful in soothing and cooling large areas of the body at one time. BurnFree blankets utilize a worsted wool blanket soaked in the gel that designed to hold 12 times it weight in gel.  It is perfect in covering widespread bodily burn injury at once while transporting to a medical facility. For immediate first aid treatment, the blankets can be wrapped around a person whose clothes are burning or who has sustained a burn injury. BurnFree blankets will instantly extinguish fires, while at the same time, wetting and cooling the fuel, which is usually clothing. This use of BurnFree blankets reduces physiological and psychological trauma by providing immediate cooling, soothing, and moistening of the burn. The blanket should remain on the burn victim during transport to the medical facility.

BurnFree Family of Products

BurnFree is a highly viscous gel that effectively stays on a burn injury rather than running off the wound as water would. It is easily absorbed into the matrix of the wool fire blanket and the open celled foam used in the sterile dressings, to cool the injury effectively.

BurnFree is predominantly pure di-ionized water which is thickened with a gelling agent to enable the water to stay in place over the wound site. While water is effective as a first aid for burns, it is difficult to keep in place. BurnFree gels the water to allow for effective and easy cooling directly on the burn site. BurnFree also has a wetting agent with the gel system to allow better penetration of the water into clothing or debris imbedded in the wound. This wetting agent allows the softening of this material to help ease the debridement process.
