Fomtec FFFP 3% is a film forming fluoroprotein foam concentrate (FFFP) containing hydrolysed protein and preservatives, together with a blend of fluorinated surfactants to achieve the maximum synergistic effect. The blend of fluorochemicals selected is effective in reducing the surface tension of water as well as the interfacial tension between water and oil sufficiently low to give stable film on the surface of the fuel and as a result it gives fire extinguishing rates superior to those obtained with synthetic based compounds. Incorporation of protein in the formulation produces a thick visible blanket which has exceptional burnback resistance.
Fomtec FFFP 3% should be used as a 3% proportioned solution in fresh or sea water. The correct proportioning or mixture ratio is 3 parts of concentrate and 97 parts of water.
