Fire Lifebouy / Fire Prevention

Fire Lifebouy

Unextinguished cigarettes are one of the main causes of many fires. The loss caused by this is as high as hundreds of millions every year. There are still hidden dangers of cigarettes after extinguishing them in regular ways. The outer layer of this design is a kind of polymer film containing 1ml of water. When the Burning point is reached, the polymer film ruptures, and the water bursts, thereby completely extinguishing the cigarettes and avoiding the tragedy of fire.
