UL162 1The AFFF foam concentrates FILMOPOL and BIOFILM are now UL 162-certified.

FILMOPOL, an AFFF fluorosynthetic AR versatile foam concentrate, is especially effective at:

  • putting out hydrocarbon fires fast owing to its AFFF properties (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam)
  • forming a protective film gel over the surface of all types of flammable liquid (class B polar solvents) due to its AR property (Alcohol-Resistant) offering remarkable resistance to re-ignition of the exposed combustible materials.

UL162 3BIOFILM, a fluorosynthetic AFFF foam concentrate, is designed to put out hydrocarbon fires.
Its film-forming property gives it excellent extinguishing speed on hydrocarbon fires.

Having our products certified by recognised independent laboratories is essential for BIOex. These certifications are a guarantee to users of the controlled quality of BIOex products.

BIOex is modernising its installations!

In 2013, BIOex chose to invest in the refurbishment of its premisesBIOex

BIOex also completely rebuilt its laboratory by perfecting, amongst other things, its research installations... Its goal: to maintain strong R&D as its core strategy to create the formulas of the future.

The refurbishment of the laboratory was accompanied by a new outdoor test platform. It was refitted to carry out tests compliant with national and international standards, while protecting the environment. This test zone also has a new sheltered test  area making it possible to carry out extinguishing and re-BIOex - Laboratoireignition tests for all of our existing and future formulas, without being subjected to the uncertainties of the weather.

BIOex, by acquiring these new installationsencourages the research, innovation and tests essential to the commercialisation of its products with the precise aim of supplying effective foam concentrates at the best price.
