Hartindo AF31 Fire Extinguisher Tested as Fire Inhibitor

Meets Class A Parameters for ASTM E-84 Test

BRENTWOOD, TN--(Marketwire - December 14, 2007) - MSE Enviro-Tech Corp. (PINKSHEETS: MEVT) (FRANKFURT: MEH) in collaboration with Megola Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGOA), is pleased to announce the results of a recent test conducted in accordance with ASTM E-84-07, Standard Test Method for Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials, at SGS U.S. Testing Co. in Fairfield, New Jersey. A wood sample treated with a formulation of Hartindo AF31 designed for use in portable fire extinguishers achieved a Class A rating (Flame Spread rating of 15 and a Smoke Developed value of 45) after exposure to test conditions.

"The purpose of this test was to show that the Hartindo AF31 formulation used in portable fire extinguishers is also a very effective fire inhibitor. When used to extinguish a fire, it greatly reduces the risk of the fire reigniting, which is a very important attribute when used in building fires and rescue operations," states Michael S. Robinson, President & CEO of MSE Enviro-Tech Corp.

A previous test, conducted by Megola, Inc. at the end of October, using a different formulation of Hartindo AF31 also achieved a Class A rating (

AF31 Treatment

Douglas Fir was used as the test material for the ASTM E-84 test. Hartindo AF31 was applied to the surface of the wood and allowed to dry before being subjected to the test conditions. The particular formulation of AF31 used in this test is designed for use in portable fire extinguishers. It is intended to extinguish all types of fire (A, B, C, D and F/K) and inhibit re-ignition of fire after it has been extinguished. The results of the ASTM-E84 test only apply to ordinary (type A) combustibles, such as wood and paper products.

Previous tests and demonstrations, jointly coordinated and conducted by MSE and Megola have shown AF31 to inhibit re-ignition of other types of combustibles, such as petroleum-based (type B) fires (

About Hartindo AF31

Hartindo AF31 is water-based, environmentally-friendly, multi-purpose, non-toxic and non-corrosive fire extinguisher and inhibitor. In its different forms, and using different equipment, it can be used in many situations to fight fires of all types (A, B, C, D and K/F). Unlike other commonly used fire extinguishing agents, such as dry chemicals and CO2, Hartindo AF31 requires no special or extensive cleanup procedures, it will not irritate the respiratory system and it will not settle in or clog a portable extinguisher if not used for an extended period of time.

About the ASTM E-84 Test

The purpose of this test is to determine the relative burning behaviour of a material by observing the flame spread along the test specimen and the smoke developed during the fire exposure. A flame spread and smoke development index are reported after a 10 minute fire exposure. Inorganic cement board and unfinished red oak flooring are used as comparative standards, assigned arbitrary values of 0 and 100, respectively. The results dictate whether a material meets the parameters for the Class A, B or C Interior Wall and Ceiling Finish Category. Class A materials must have a flame spread between 0-25, Class B: 26-75, and Class C: 76-200. Smoke development must be between 0-450 for all classes.
