Fire Response is the authorised Australian national distributor for leading fire fighting foam manufacturer VS Focum. Our innovative range of fluorine free firefighting foams are free from the damaging, highly persistent organic PFAS pollutants PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) and PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid), whilst still maintaining a superior level of firefighting ability.
Australia faces a myriad of fire hazards. Bush, urban, industry, mining, marine, aviation…. different fire scenarios require different approaches as well as alternative products and equipment. Our firefighting foams offer the necessary diversity for this variety of applications. The range includes industry-leading Fluorine Free Foams (Newtonian and Pseudoplastic), AFFF, training foams, Class A foams, forest fire retardant, and multi-expansion foams. Application fields include:
Many Australian states have introduced regulations that either completely ban foams containing PFAS or only give exception to their use in extreme catastrophic situations. Those that haven’t yet banned these toxic chemicals are in the process of phasing them out. That’s why it is vitally important that you plan your transition to fluorine free foam now.
Our products are compliant with government and industry regulations and limit both the environmental impact and the risks to human health. Our Fluorine Free Firefighting Foams (Newtonian and Pseudoplastic) do not contain any fluorosurfactant, any fluoropolymer, or any silicon whilst retaining the highest fire fighting response.
Our industry experience has provided us with extensive knowledge of the challenges that can be encountered when managing product storage, mixing, and equipment. A firefighting foam concentrate whose quality diminishes in storage can lead to disastrous results, as can the use of the wrong mixing and delivery equipment. We can advise you on how to overcome these challenges and show you why our foams are superior to the others on the market.
Of the few foam concentrates that we offer that do contain PFAS/PFOS (AFFF, AFFF/AR), VS Focum have used as little of the fluorine as possible and only C6 technology at that. (The EPA in the US concluded that Fluorosurfactants with a carbon chain length of C6 or less cannot degrade into PFOA.)
The firefighting foams we offer from VS Focum are not only some of the best in terms of foam quality worldwide, but their research and development continuously consider environmental and technical changes, in conjunction with the future trends and changes in fire standards and restrictions on several raw materials. This makes them the best producer of very concentrated specialised firefighting foam products for use in CAFS (Compressed Air Foam Systems).
Foam selection has become a complex consideration requiring a balance between performance and potential environmental impact. It is imperative that you consult with experts who will advise, appraise, test, and facilitate your transition to fluorine free firefighting foams. Our team is dedicated to achieving the best overall outcome for you, providing advice, guidance, and dedicated after-sales service.
