BoldFoam M2 Multiexpansion Fluorine Free foam – Fire Brigades, Marine, Industry, Mining
The composition of BoldFoam M2 Multiexpansion Fluorine Free foam is based on a mixture of hydrocarbonated surfactants, glycols, inhibitors corrosion and other additives. The aqueous solutions of this fire fighting foam concentrate form a homogeneous mixture with a high expansion index, a high drainage time and high heat resistence.
This concentrate can be used with sea water and is specially appropiated for marine purposes because it can be applied on deck with low expansion nozzles and in the engine room with a high expansion generator. When BoldFoam M2 is applied in a hot engine room, the application of foam results in a reduction of oxygen by sweeping away the air, thereby suffocating the fire. Furthermore, the water in the foam produces a cooling effect.
Boldfoam M2 represents effective protection for special cases and more severe cryogenic risks such as LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) and LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) using high expansion generators. It is suitable in concentrations of 2% with fresh, sea or brackish water.
Do not apply on liquid polar fires. Its excellent wetting characteristics make it ideal for fighting Class A fires. This Multiexpansion Fluorine Free foam should be applied at its adequate concentration with aspirating systems to make use as much as possible of its wetting properties.
BoldFoam M2 can be easily proportioned using most conventional proportioning equipment such as: *Balanced pressure pump and bladder tank proportioners, around the pump type and venturis proportioners, and handline nozzles with fixed induction/pickup tubes.
Biodegradability: Boldfoam M2 presents an aerobic biodegradability at 28 days of 100% which makes it a product “Fully biodegradable in 28 days”.
