All the provided information has been checked and validated, as confirmed by the test reports and certificates of compliance detailed in the present page.

In Greece, the existing regulation obligates all vehicle manufacturers and owners auto makers to carry a fire extinguisher; Reinoldmax is the only authorized product conforming to this regulation.
Reinoldmax extinguishes all types of fire, namely: Class A (flammable solids), Class B (flammable liquids), Class C (1000 V or less electrical appliances) and Class K (cooking fires); in the Province of Quebec, 25 cooking fire incidents are reported weekly.
The innovative propulsion technology of the Reinoldmax portable fire extinguisher allows you to spray the foam at a safe 1 to 3 metres distance without splashing, feeding or dispersing lighted liquids, thus making its use that much safer. Furthermore, the AFFF foam formulation, with proven extinguishing properties, is non- toxic and leaves no hard to clean messy residue.
Homologation of the Reinoldmax product in North America
There are no current established standards for portable aerosol spray fire extinguishers. We are presently collaborating with governmental agencies in order to determine Canadian and USA standards for portable aerosol spray fire extinguishing equipment. the homologation and implementation of dedicated standard require time.
Some unapproved devices do not meet the minimum fire extinguishing requirements for residential environments. They are not compatible with all types of fire (A-B-C and K) and can be very dangerous to use. Here is a video that clearly demonstrates the difference in extinguishing performance of Reinoldmax compared to other aerosols on the market.

Legalizing sale of the Reinoldmax product in Canada
Reinoldmax is currently regulated under and meets Public Safety Canada, Health Canada and Environment Canada standards for "Ethanol, 2-(2butoxyethoxy) AFFF Fire Extinguishing Foam" formulation and consequently, can be legally sold in Canada.
However, the product is not certified as a portable fire extinguisher in accordance with NFPA10 standard and therefore cannot replace a conventional fire extinguisher where this standard is mandatory.
Given the lack of regulations and certification on aerosols to date, some products on the market are unfortunately ineffective for certain household fires. Due to lack of standard, some provinces had to adopt specific regulations and prohibit any sale of unauthorized fire extinguishing products.
Sales restriction in the Province of :
The Province of Alberta in 2014 endorsed the 2014 AFC Provincial Law B, which states that any device sold on its territory must have a Canadian certification.
The Province of Nova Scotia, through their Fire Safety Regulations require that all portable fire extinguishers sold or distributed in their jurisdiction be listed as required by the edition of the National Fire Code of Canada currently in force.
Several Canadian Fire Service Departments tested the Reinoldmax product and they all agree that this complementary portable fire extinguisher is very efficient and meets the basic needs of the general population. They all enthusiastically wish to collaborate to the introduction of this type of equipment in residential areas once the proper authorities and accredited certification agencies establish regulations and certification requirements for portable aerosol spray fire extinguishers.
In Europe, the Reinoldmax product conforms to BSI standards and regulation for the fabrication and chemical contents of portable fire extinguishers. Other European agencies also conducted testing procedures and certified the Reinoldmax product.
