EFFECTIVENESS ON FIRES
The additives in the FLUOFOAM line are specially designed to control hydrocarbon fires.
The so-called film generating property AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) gives the FLUOFOAM fire-fighting foam concentrates an excellent fire extinguishing speed on hydrocarbon fires. The action of the film applied to a burning liquid that is water-immiscible blocks access to oxygen, like a fire blanket, to end up smothering and putting out the fire.
The foam concentrate is applied directly, i.e. directly on the surface of the burning product using a hose or a monitor in the “solid jet” position. This setting makes it possible for the fire fighting team to fight the fire from a long distance and thus avoid exposure to unbearable heat sources.
