High performance AFFF foam agents



Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrates are high performance synthetic foam agents comprised of detergent and fluorocarbon surfactant suited for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, petroleum and aviation fuels.

AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) agents produce foam with the inherent ability to produce a vapour suppressing aqueous film on the surface of the hydrocarbon fuels. They are known to have extremely fast fire knockdown capabilities which make them particularly effective for use in rescue situations involving hydrocarbon fires.

Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) provides a rapid flame knock down on class B fires involving water immiscible flammable liquids. On application, the foam spreads rapidly to form an aqueous film and foam blanket. The aqueous film suppresses the fuel vapours. The foam blanket provides an additional safety layer to the aqueous film effectively excluding oxygen from the fuel surface, extinguishing the fire and preventing re-ignition. Additionally it provides a cooling function on the fuel by enclosing water within the foam bubbles and makes the water float on fuel surfaces despite its usually higher density.

Their fast fire knockdown ability makes AFFF agents particularly useful in applications that involve quick rescue from hydrocarbon fires. In particular the Offshore industries use AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) agents for process area and helideck protection whilst the Aviation sector would use AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) concentrates within ARFF(Aqueous Film Forming Foam) vehicle for airport crash rescue. Although very effective on Class B hydrocarbon fires, AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) agents must not be used on polar solvent fires
