Synthetic Foam Concentrates

Synthetic Foam Concentrates

Synthetic fire fighting foams are based on specially selected surfactants.

Recognition features:
Clear, aqueous liquid, easily yellowish to amber colours, partly dyed (e.g. red, blue, green). With alcohol-steady foam concentrate high viscosity (gel-like). The MOUSSOL-LV products are exceptional as they do not contain polymer film former (LV=LOW VISCOSITY).

STHAMEX®Multi Purpose Detergent Foam
STHAMEX® are fire extinguishing agents based on surfactants. STHAMEX® products are suitable for generating low, medium and high expansion foam. STHAMEX® products reduces the surface tension of water and thus are an excellent wetting agent, as well.

Properties
STHAMEX® is suitable for generating low, medium and high expansion foam used for extinguishing fires of class A + B, and - as a precaution - can also be used to suppress emissions of spilled liquids where small amounts of gas can escape. STHAMEX® reduces the surface tension of water and thus is an excellent wetting agent, as well. The flowable foam extinguishes safely and forms a gastight cover on combustible surfaces, is resistant to heat radiation, gas and wind, thus considerably reducing the risk of re-ignition.

STHAMEX® F-6 bis F-25 are nearly similar in there characteristics, besides there frost resistance.

STHAMEX®-K is a high concentrated multi purpose detergent foam with an induction rate of 1%.

STHAMEX®–class A
is a foam concentrate preferably for fires of solid materials (class-A fires).

Properties
Faster than usual foam concentrates STHAMEX®–class A penetrates the surface of combustible solids resulting in extraordinary cooling and extinguishing effectiveness. CAFS application intensifies the wetting and extinguishing effect. The compressed air used with this application method characterises the foam properties. The foam bubbles are particularly small and stable for long lasting adherence of the foam to solids. The foam solution drains slowly and steadily onto the combustible surface which at the same time is being sheltered from heat radiation. Thus the foam solution continuously penetrates the burning material and permanently wets its surface without draining instantly as it would be the case if only water was used. The cooling effect by constant evaporation of the extinguishing agent is being improved. The efficiency of the extinguishing agent used is increased by the multiple: compared to water the effectiveness of extinguishing agent is raised by 7-8 times. When STHAMEX®–class A is used inside buildings the damage caused by water can be reduced considerably.

MOUSSOL®–FF Alcohol-resistant Fluorine-free
Fire Extinguishing Foam Concentrate
MOUSSOL®–FF is an alcohol-resistant fluorine free fire extinguishing foam concentrate. It is based on special surface active agents, polymer film formers, co-surfactants as well as foam stabilisers and antifreezing compounds which are partially made of re-growing raw materials.

Properties
MOUSSOL®–FF is a pseudoplastic product which is stable against both polar (watermiscible) and non-polar hydrocarbons as well as mixtures of the two.
MOUSSOL®–FF has very good foaming properties and can be used as medium expansion foam as well. On polar hydrocarbons, the polymer film formed effectively prevents destruction of the foam.

MOUSSOL®–APS Alcohol-resistant AFFF foam agent
MOUSSOL®–APS is an alcohol-resistant AFFF fire extinguishing foam concentrate. It is based on special surface active agents, polymer film formers, aqueous film formers, co-tensides as well as foam stabilisers and antifreezing compounds which are partially made of re-growing raw materials and are very ecological.

MOUSSOL®–APS
Combines the effectiveness of both polymer and aqueous film forming foam concentrates within itself. Fluorinated surfactants enhance the flowability of the foam on non-polar hydrocarbons. The polymer film formed on polar solvents effectively prevents destruction of the foam. The products ensure rapid and safe extinction by film formation preventing reignition and developing a stable foam which is gastight and resists flames and heat radiation.

Preventatively MOUSSOL®–APS is used to cover spills of volatile liquids. The foam blanket suppresses evaporation preventing emissions of flammable and toxic gases. The fire risk and environmental impact thus are reduced considerably.

MOUSSOL®–APS complies with applicable standards.

MOUSSOL®–APS F-5 to F-25
Are nearly similar in there characteristics, besides there frost resistance.

MOUSSOL®–APS 1x3 and 3x3
Is specially used to cover spills of volatile liquids. The foam blanket suppresses evaporation preventing emissions of flammable and toxic gases. The fire risk and environmental impact thus are reduced considerably. Fluorinated surfactants enhance the flowability of the foam on non-polar hydrocarbons. The polymer film formed on polar solvents effectively prevents destruction of the foam.

MOUSSOL®–APS LV
Are low viscous and formulated without any polymerfilm forming agents.
Application: CAFS-foam generation
