Silvara Core Fluorine Free Foam – the most concentrated certified Class B Fluorine Free Fire Fighting Foam available!
The new Silvara CORE Fluorine Free Foam represents the latest development included in our catalogue: a superconcentrate Newtonian fluorine free fire fighting foam to be applied in Class A fires at 0.2% and Class B fires at 0.3%. This has been certified by MPA Dresden as EN 1568-3:2018 (IC) at 0.3%. It is the most concentrated and certified Class B FF foam available. With this incredible foam, your CAFS can have Class A at 0.2% and Class B at 0.3%. This changes everything. All over again.
Silvara CORE fluorine free foam is a low viscosity Newtonian foam concentrate to extinguish hydrocarbon fuel fires and solids.
Formulated with solvents, hydrocarbon surfactants and additives, Silvara CORE doesn´t contain any type of organ halogen compound, is easily biodegradable and is responsible with the environment. Silvara CORE forms resistant foam to insulate the fuel of the oxygen and extinguish the fire.
Silvara CORE should be used at 0.3% in water to extinguish Class B fires (hydrocarbons fuels). It is not suitable to use on polar fuels.
It is useful to combat class A fires (solids) because its excellent wetting properties. Silvara CORE has been designed to obtain its optimal potential when it is used with CAFs.

Silvara Core is easily biodegradable and environmentally responsible. 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.
Like the rest of the Silvara range. Core has excellent storage qualities too! If stored as recommended it will maintain a shelf life of 20 – 25 years without gellification, separation or degradation.
