Bushfire Fighting Foam - WhitEx


Bushfire Fighting Foam

Bushfire fighting foam for use by land and air crews.

Essentially a Class A Foam but with special characteristics to enable it to be used in varying ways. The mixing ratios between 0.1% and 1% enable the foam to be used as a wetting agent or applied as structural foam, stuck to trees and bushes, thereby extinguishing the fire and offering great resistance to re-ignition. WhitEx can be used in both land-systems (foam nozzles, fog-stream, high pressure) and air-systems (planes, helicopters, hydroplanes) and possesses anti-corrosion properties in materials such as iron, brass, aluminium, magnesium, etc. – materials commonly used in the aeronautical sector.

Possesses the lowest environmental impact possible to allow the treated area to recover.

WhitEx bushfire fighting foam concentrate easily forms a stable and homogeneous foam. The drain-time of the foam with fresh or sea water is low which provides an additional protection.
