FIREX (3% AFFF) STD

Description

Product Description

Firex AFFF 3% Foam is produced at our factory in Sharjah, UAE in partnership with FOMTEC Sweden using 100% fomtec raw materials made in sweden and Fomtec blending instruction.
Firex AFFF 3% is an aqueous film forming foam concentrate (AFFF) consisting of fluorocarbon and hydrocarbon surfactants blended with various solvents, preservatives and stabilizers. The foam forms an aqueous film that rapidly cuts off the oxygen supply and knocks down the fire. The expanded foam, from which the film is drained, forms a stable blanket that suppresses the release of flammable vapors and cools down the fuel surface extinguishing the fire and preventing reignition. The low surface tension of the water-foam solution enables the aqueous film, although heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the liquid surface.
Firex AFFF 3% should be used at 3% proportioned solution (3 part concentrate in 94 parts of water) in brackish, fresh or sea water. It may also be stored as a premix solution in fresh water.
