FOMTEC (6% FFFP) STD

Description

Product Description
Fomtec FFFP 6% 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 6% should be used as a 6% proportioned solution in fresh or sea water. The correct proportioning or mixture ratio is 6 parts of concentrate and 94 parts of water.

Additional information

Features and Benefits

Fomtec FFFP 6% is intended for use on B class hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, petroleum and aviation fuels. Fomtec FFFP 6% can be applied directly onto the fire surface and is also suitable for subsurface injection. It is compatible with all dry powders and can be used in dry powder/foam twin agent systems.
