The first Newtonian fluorine free fire fighting foam 1% concentrate in the world!
Silvara I is a fluorine free, low viscosity Newtonian fire fighting foam concentrate for use in extinguishing hydrocarbon fuel fires and solids.
Silvara I Fluorine Free Fire Fighting Foam 1% is an alternative to AFFF products – it forms a resistant foam to insulate the fuel from oxygen and extinguish the fire. It can be used in fresh water to extinguish class B fires (Diesel & Oil fires). Due to its excellent wetting properties, it is also useful in combating class A fires (solids). It is not suitable for use on polar fuels. EN1568-3:2018 (1%) Class IIB (fresh water), Class IIIC (seawater), EN1568-1,2:2018 (3% fresh water), EN1568-3:2018 with Diesel & Oil fires Class I+A with (fresh & seawater). This is truely in a class of its own when it comes to fire extinguishment and burn back in diesel & oil fires. See the Fluorine Free Statement
Silvara I is easily biodegradable and environmentally responsible. It has a biodegradability of up to 99% over 14 days. With the growing knowledge of the persistent bioaccumulative toxic nature of PFASs in traditional firefighting foams (AFFF for example) and the changing regulations banning the use of such products, it is becoming more and more urgent for mining companies to address their transition to fluorine free products. We are helping sites all over Australia move to the more environmentally sound Silvara Foam without sacrificing any fire extinguishing performance.
The outstanding Silvara I Fluorine Free Fire Fighting Foam 1% has excellent storage qualities too! If stored as recommended it will maintain a shelf life of 20 – 25 years without gellification, separation or degradation.
