Fomtec, a leading manufacturer ot high quality tire protection products has authorized Firex to distribute a wide range of foam concentrate. And these foam concentrates are the following:
AFFF 3% Ultra FOAM CONCENTRATE
Fomtec AFFF 3% Ultra is an aqueous film forming foam concentrate (AFFF) consisting of fluorocarbon and hydrocarbon surfactants blended with various solvents, preservatives and stabilisers. The foam forms an aqueous film that rapidly cuts off the oxygen supply and thus knocks down the fire. The expanded foam from which the film is drained forms a stable blanket that suppresses the release of flammable vapours and cools down the fuel surface extinguishing the fire and preventing re-ignition.
Fomtec AFFF 3% Ultra is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, diesel and aviation fuels. It can be used with both aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices. Fomtec AFFF 3% Ultra is especially suited whenever rapid fire knock-down is essential. lt is compatible with all dry chemical powders and can be used in powder/foam twin agent systems.
AFFF 6% Ultra also UL listed.
ARC 3X3 Ultra FOAM CONCENTRATE
Fomtec ARC 3×3 Ultra is an ultra efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (3×3). The main advantage of Fomtec ARC 3×3 Ultra is the 3% induction ratio on hydrocarbon fires and 3% on polar solvents. The film forming characteristics of Fomtec ARC 3×3 Ultra means that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires and with the addition of special polymers it is also highly effective against polar solvents.
Fomtec ARC 3×3 Ultra is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel as well as on polar solvent i.e lsopropanol, Methanol etc and other foam destroying product fires such as MTBE. it can be used with both aspirating and non aspirating discharge devices. It is compatible with all dry chemical powders.
ARC 1X3 Ultra and ARC 3×6 Ultra also UL listed.
FP 6% UL FOAM CONCENTRATE
Fomtec FP 6% ULis a flouroprotein foam concentrate containing flourinated surfactants in a carefully formulated protein foam liquid base. This ensures the production of a stabilised ﬂuid foam which will cover a burning hydrocarbon fuel surface rapidly.
Fomtec FP 6% UL is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, diesel and aviation fuels.Fomtec FP 6% UL can be applied directly onto the fire surface and is also suitable for sub surface injection. lt is compatible with all dry chemical powders and can be used in powder/foam twin agent systems. In addition to the above UL listed foams, Fomteo has a wide range of foams with certifications for other sectors, such as marine and shipping (IMO SOLAS), civil aviation(lCAO level B), military (UK Defence) and many appovals to European Standard EN 1568. All of these are available from Firex.
FP 3% UL also UL Listed.
FFFP ARC 3×3 NV
NEWTONIAN FOAM CONCENTRATE
Fomtec FFFP ARC 3×3 NV Avalanche is a high efficiency multipurpose alcohol resistant film forming fluoroprotein foam (3×3) concentrate. Fomtec FFFP ARC 3×3 NV is a liquid based on environmentally friendly natural protein and does not contain any polymer that makes general AR type foam concentrates viscous. its high fluidity makes the induction easier and accurate through both portable and fixed inline proportioners even at extremely low temperatures (-18°C). The advantage of Fomtec FFFP ARC 3×3 NV is the 3% induction ratio on all class B fires including polar solvents in fresh or seawater.
The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, although heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon fuel surface. The specially selected fluorocarbon surfactants ‘seal’ the bubbles against attack from polar solvents and also provide a highly effective floating foam layer on top of the polar solvents.
Fomtec FFFP ARC 3×3 NV is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel as well as on polar solvent i.e lsopropanol, Methanol etc and other foam destroying product fires such as MTBE. Typical applications are bulk storage tank protection, process areas, power stations, marine terminals, municipal fire departments, offshore platforms etc. lt is compatible with all dry chemical powders.
