Fluorine Free Foam

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

VS Focum are committed to having the fastest possible extinguish – that is, providing the surest and safest way to avoid the effects of fires. The protection of human lives and property in the most efficient way, along with minimal environmental impact is the goal.

Description

Fluorine Free Technology

Advanced formula – similar fire-fighting performance as AFFF and Fluoroprotein products, no gelification, peel formation or jamming.

There were three key directives VS Focum R&D kept in mind when 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. Specialise in very highly concentrated products (<1%) for use in CAFS (Compressed Air Foam Systems). The more concentrated the product – the more advantages it carries (0.5% is better than 3%). Plus, the economical logistics, more autonomy, less storage.
  3. Achieve the 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 concentrate based on an innovative patented, low-toxicity hydrocarbon surfactant, and other non-hazardous ingredients. As a result, it is substantially biodegradable and presents the lowest environmental impact.

Certified according to UNE-EN-1568-3:2008 with classification IB.

As an aqueous film forming foam AFFF and Fluoroprotein foam alternative, this advanced formulation produces a similar fire-fighting performance 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.
