Detailed Product Description
UL Listed, 3% x 6% AR-AFFF Concentrate with a special biosynthesized polymer. This polymer is designed to fulfill two functions. The first is to form a protective membrane between the fuel and the foam as it contacts the water miscible fuel, making extinguishment possible. The second function is to make the foam more stable and heat resistant, resulting in better burnback resistance and salability compared to conventional AFFF.
FC 3% x 6% AR-AFFF is a specially formulated, free flowing, viscous, aqueous film forming foam concentrate. It forms a vapor suppressing aqueous film on hydrocarbon type fuels or a polymeric membrane on polar solvent/water miscible type fuels. FC 3 x 6% AR-AFFF is intended for use at a proportioning rate of 6% (6 parts AR-AFFF to 94 parts water) on hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel, etc., and on polar solvent fuels such as alcohols, ketones, esters, etc. FC 3% x 6% AR-AFFF is specifically formulated for Topside, or Type II and Type III applications.
§ Used at a 6% proportioning rate on both hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuels
§ Suitable for use with either fresh or salt water
§ Excellent wetting characteristics when used in combating Class A fuel type fires
§ Suitable for use with fiberglass, polyethylene or stainless steel. AR-AFFF is not compatible with galvanized pipe or fittings in an undiluted form.
§ Suitable for use on hydrocarbon or polar solvent type fuels
§ Suitable for use with both air-aspirating foam and standard water fog nozzles
§ Economized for Topside applications
