Firex Foam is used for fire suppression. its role is to cool the ﬁre and to coat the fuel, preventing its contact with oxygen, resulting in suppression of the combustion.
The AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) foam concentrate consisting of flurocarbon and hydrocarbon surfactant blended with various solvents, preservatives and stabilizers. This foam forms an aqueous film that quickly cuts off the oxygen supply and thus stopping the fire from burning. The foam also forms a stable blanket that suppresses the release of flammable vapours and cool down the fuel surface extinguishing the fire and preventing re-ignition.
The FP 3% is a fluroprotein foam concentrate containing fluorinated surfactant in a carefully formulated protein foam liquid base. This ensures the production of stabilized fluid foam which will cover a burning fuel. The water soluble fluorosurfactant makes the foam hydrocarbon repellent and reduces the amount of burning particles absorbed by the foam. Once the fire extinction has been achieved the high stability of the foam blanket ensures the prevention of re-ignition.
Both the AFFF and the FP 3% foam are intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, diesel and
aviation fuel. The FP 3% can be applied directly onto the fire surface and is also suitable for sub surface injection and the AFFF can be used with both aspirating and non aspirating discharge devices. And they are compatible with all dry chemical powder and can be used in powder/foam twin agent systems.
