Under a licensing agreement with TRC for the previous three years, Applica Consumer Products, Inc. has worked with TRC to implement the FireShield(TM)** Technology into its full line of Black & Decker®* heaters and now look to extend FireShield(TM)** Technology in Black & Decker®* Kitchen Products as part of its Advanced Safety Technology(TM) (AST)™ System.
