ICL Advanced awarded contract from USAF for firefighting foams

ICL (NYSE: ICL) (TASE: ICL) ICL Advanced Additives business unit has been awarded a USD6.2 million contract from the US Air Force (USAF) to supply 418,000 gallons of ICL AA´s Phos-Chek firefighting foam for firefighting vehicles and fire station foam stocks, the company said.

The USAF said it selected ICL AA´s Phos-Chek product based on its reduced environmental impact as well as ICL AA´s ability to meet stringent US military specifications and to provide favorable delivery and price terms.

ICL provides fire protection product offerings with Phos-Chek and Auxquimia brand foams for the firefighting community.
