If stored below the minimum use temperature, freezing may occur. AR-AFFF exhibits the best cross-functional performance esluma flame knock-down, burnback resistance, extended vapor suppression, manufacturing and proportioning consistency, and the longest potential shelf life. This is accomplished by allowing the foam solution to quickly drain from the foam bubble which in turn, affects long term sealability and burnback resistance.
When these afvf agents are applied to a water soluble fuel such as methyl alcohol, a polymeric esluma is formed between the foam and the water soluble fuel. The aqueous film is produced by the fluorocarbon surfactant reducing the surface tension of the foam solution to a point where the solution can be supported by the surface tension of the fuel. Water hardness should not exceed ppm expressed as calcium and magnesium. If frozen, the concentrate can be thawed and remixed before use.
We promise to never spam you, and just use your email address to identify you as a valid customer. They may also be used and stored as a pre-mixed solution in only fresh, potable water. This concentrate can be used on either afff Class B fuels or the polar solvent type Class B fuels.
To provide even greater fire protection capability, it can be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application to provide even greater fire protection capability.
However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, care must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface. Typical installations include foam water sprinkler systems, aircraft hangars, loading racks, process areas and aircraft rescue and firefighting ARFF or other manual firefighting applications where polar solvent fuels are not encountered.
To provide even greater fire protection capability, it may be used with dry chemical extinguishing agents without regard to the order of application. This product hasn’t received any reviews yet. It may also be stored and used as a premixed solution in fresh water only. AFFF foam concentrates are designed for rapid fire knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film which spreads across the surface of the fuel, separating the fuel from oxygen.
The concentrate has excellent wetting properties that can effectively combat Class A fires as well. While early alcohol-resistant foams were based on mixtures of protein foams and chemicals called metal soaps, the most current alcohol-resistant concentrates are based on AFFF concentrates to which a water soluble polymer polysaccharide has been added.

An aqueous film is formed in the case of a conventional hydrocarbon fuel, or a polymeric membrane in the case of a polar solvent fuel. Write your review here: There are three fire extinguishing mechanisms in effect when using the concentrates on either a conventional Class B hydrocarbon fuel such as afrf or diesel fuel, or a Class B polar solvent water miscible fuel such as methanol or acetone.
However, with the velocity of the dry chemical discharge, care must be taken not to submerge the polymeric membrane below the fuel surface when using fspuma twin agent method on polar solvent fuels. You may be trying to access this site from a secured browser on the server.
Regardless of the fuel type, a foam blanket is formed which excludes oxygen and from which drains the liquids that form the film or the polymeric membrane. Aer-O-Lite is suitable for use with most types of proportioning and discharge equipment. Turn on more accessible mode Turn off more accessible mode Skip to main content. It may also be used in conjunction with dry chemical agents to provide even greater fire suppression performance.
