Description

Fire Response offer a range of fluorine free foam concentrates and we are the exclusive Australian distributor of VS Focum fire fighting foam concentrates.

Together we are committed to the idea of having the fastest extinguishing – providing the surest and safest way to avoid the effects of fires. We believe in a way to protect human lives and properties in the most efficient way, along with the minimal environmental impact of our products.

Fluorine Free Technology

There are three key directions in VS Focum R&D towards creating the best environmental foams:

  1. Newtonian (low viscosity) based concentrate is ideally suited to existing in-line eductors and fire nozzles being used in the field. No problems with gelification, pipe jams, or peel formation.
  2. Specialised in very highly concentrated foams (<1%) use in CAFS. The more concentrated the product is – the more advantages it carries (0.5% is better than 3%). Plus economic logistics, more autonomy, less storage.
  3. Highest biodegradation along with lowest damage in soil contamination and water treatment.

Why Fluorine Free Foam by VS Focum?

Boldfoam SILVARA 1% is a specially formulated, synthetic fluorine-free fire-fighting foam concentrate based on an innovative patented, low-toxicity hydrocarbon surfactants, and other non-hazardous ingredients. As a result, it is substantially biodegradable and presents the lowest environmental impact.

Firefighting foam certified according to UNE-EN-1568-3:2008 with classification IB.

As an AFFF and Fluoroprotein foam alternative, this advanced formulation produces a similar fire-fighting performance as AFFF and Fluoroprotein products while containing no organofluorine components. When used in systems and handline applications, SILVARA produces a strong and cohesive foam blanket on the surface of the fuel to extinguish fire and suppress fuel vapor.
