Fire Fighting Foam – Synthetic
Within the Synthetic range of fire fighting foam is 4 main products – Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF), Alcohol Resistant AFFF, High Expansion Foam and Training Foam.
Available in either a 1%, 3% or 6% the AFFF fire fighting foams extinguish hydrocarbon flammable liquid fires the same way as the protein or fluoroprotein foams but provide the added benefit of an aqueous film which is formed on the surface of the flammable liquid by the foam solution.This film is very fluid and floats on the surface of most hydrocarbon fuels providing unequaled speed in fire supression and knockdown when used on a typical hydrocarbon spill fire.
AFFF fire fighting foam solutions can be applied to a flammable liquid fire using either aspirating or non-aspirating discharge devices.
Alcohol Resistant AFFF fire fighting foam is available in a 3%-6% type or 3%-3% type concentrate.
Flammable liquids that readily mix with water are a more difficult fire to extinguish as opposed to a hydrocarbon fire. Using plain AFFF concentrate as a base material, a high molecular weight polymer is added during the manufacturing process. When Alcohol Resistant AFFF is used on a polar solvent fuel fire, the polar solvent fuel tries to absorb water from the foam blanket. A polymer precipitates out forming a physical membrane/barrier between the fuel surface and foam blanket. This barrier now protects the generated foam blanket from destruction by the alcohol fuel.
Delta’s range of Synthetic fire fighting foams are available in 25 litre and 200 litre drums, 1000 litre IBC’s or by the tanker load.
