ALCOHOL RESISTANT AFFF (AR-AFFF)
FIRECHEM AR-AFFF is an eco -friendly, totally synthetic blend of surfactants and special polymers. The foam creates a physical polymer – membrane barrier between the foam blanket and fuel surface. It is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires and with the addition of special polymers, it is also highly effective against polar solvents. It is highly versatile and so eliminates the need to stock a variety of foam types.
It gives a superior burn back resistance and post fire security. It is used in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation kerosene ) and /or polar solvents ( such as alcohols , ketones , esters and ethers ) are stored , processed or transported.
AR-AFFF is available in three different proportioning types : 1% X 3 % , 3 % X 3 % and 3 % X 6 % .
PROTEIN & FLUOROPROTEIN
Foam produced by protein foam technology is tough, stable and heat resistant and covers the burning hydrocarbon fuel surface rapidly. The high stability of the foam blanket ensures the risk of re-ignition and provides excellent protection against ‘burn-back’, should any inaccessible pockets of fire remain.
FIRECHEM Protein Foam Concentrate’s composition is based on a natural protein foaming agent and contains no harmful synthetic detergent or glycol ether.
This is available in two different types : FIRECHEM 3% and FIRECHEM 6 % .
FIRECHEM FFFP is a unique combination of a rapid fire knockdown quality of conventional film forming AFFF with a tough cohesive foam blanket based on protein base material, providing high level of post fire security and burn back resistance as a top quality fluoroprotein.
FIRECHEM FFFP’s formulation is based on advanced protein foam technology containing hydrolysed protein, fluorochemical surface active agent and preservatives to achieve the maximum synergetic effect.
AR-FFFP is multi-purpose natural protein based foam for use on a wide range of both hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires . It contains special hydrophilic polymers producing a thick layer if applied on chemicals. It generates a fast flowing foam resistant against burn back with high insulating protection to heat and chemical destruction, if applied on any kind of fuel. It is suitable with all types of known equipment and is also compatible dry chemical powders.
FIRECHEM Foam concentrate can be used with high expansion equipment to combat three dimensional fires where total flooding is the objective such as paint booths , paper ware houses, airplane hangers and mines. The long lasting foam also helps to prevent re-igniting.
The large volume of foam produced blankets the area being protected and prevents air from reaching the fire. High Expansion Foam Concentrates are suitable with low, medium and high foam generating equipments
FIRECHEM manufactures a wide range of Class A Foam Concentrates for use in a variety of firefighting applications. When proportioned with water, Class A foam concentrates change the water properties, reducing the surface tension allowing greater penetration into Class A fuels
A mixture of foaming and wetting agents, our Class A foam concentrates also give water a superior foaming ability so it clings to surfaces with minimal run off, which speeds extinguishment and reduces water usage. In addition to wild land operations, FIRECHEM Class A foam is effective in fighting many deep – seated fires, such as paper, tires and wooden structures
FIRECHEM has designed the Fluorine Free Foam to control and reduce the volume of harmful chemicals used in foam formulations. Fluorine Free Foam Concentrate is specially formulated to meet the growing demand for environmentally benign training foams. It is completely biodegradable and is available in three different types
The FIRECHEM Fluorine Free Foam is totally free of Fluoro – Organic compounds. Fluorine free foams act as a physical barrier from a combination of surfactants and natural polymers extracted from living organisms
