FTICS – Saving Lives,
Eliminating Vehicle Fires
FUEL TANK INERTIA CAPSULE SYSTEM
In the event of a collision, automotive fires are a major risk. A2Z’s innovative FTICS Fuel Tank Inertia Capsule System is a revolutionary breakthrough in automotive safety, eliminating the danger of fuel tank combustion in the event of collision, preventing serious potential harm to passengers and reducing vehicle damage.
When a collision occurs, the FTICS system is automatically activated. It releases a proprietary substance into the gas tank and gas line that solidifies fuel and makes it inert, eliminating leaks and the possibility of combustion.
The result is an enhanced level of safety for passengers and reduced vehicle damage.
The FTICS is a patented
THE FTICS IS A PATENTED 3-PART SYSTEM
On collision, the FTICS releases a proprietary chemical mixture into the gas tank, neutralizing the contents rendering them inert and nonflammable. The gas tank is also isolated to ensure none of the contents leak. The final component of the FTICS system forces all the oxygen out of the gas tank to further limit the possibility of fire. The FTICS requires no additional sensors as it is triggered by the same sensors that trigger the deployment of the vehicle’s airbag.
A2Z believes that there will be pressure to adopt the system widely, thereby countering a strong threat to drivers and their passengers which exists today A two-pronged approach to the rollout of FTICS begins with retrofitting existing vehicles, with a long-term strategy of making it an option for new vehicles, striving to make it mandatory.
