Description

Fluorine Free Foam from industry leading manufacturer, VS Focum. This Newtonian based concentrate is ideally suited to existing in-line eductors and fire nozzles being used in the field.

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.

Fluorine Free Firefighting Foam Benefits:

  • Suitable for use with existing fire equipment.
  • Is less viscous than pseudoplastic based foam concentrates, so problems like gellification, peel formation or pipe jams are completely avoided
  • 100% Fluorine & Silicon Free
