From the text:'during the field season of 1976 tests were undertaken by the Forest Fire Research Institute to determine the friction reduction effectiveness of Firestream Plus. Firestream Plus is an electrolytic hydrocarbon oxide polymer manufactured by the Riverside Polymer Corporation. The manufacturers literature states that along with exhibiting friction reduction properties their product will also act as a wetting agent and foam booster. Firestream Plus has achieved positive results in tests under taken by several municipal fire departments in the United States. However, Firestream Plus produced no results for an American forestry fire control agency when tested under similiar conditions to those used at the Forest Fire Research Institute. Further testing will be carried out in the future with a new sample of the chemical to verify last season's results.'
