POLYFILM - FFFP fluorosynthetic AR versatile foam concentrate effective on hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires

Logo POLYFILM

EFFECTIVENESS ON FIRES 

The POLYFILM foam concentrates have specificities that make it possible to effectively put out hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires:

  • The so-called film generating property FFFP (Film Forming FluoroProtein)gives the POLYFILM foaming agent an excellent extinguishing speed on hydrocarbon fires using direct application, i.e. when directly applied to the surface of the burning liquid. A fire hose or monitor set to the "solid jet "position can be used for this application and will make it possible for the fire fighting team to fight the fire from a correct distance avoiding their exposure to intense heat.
  • The versatile AR (Alcohol Resistant) property consist in forming a protective coating film on the surface of all types of inflammable liquids (polar solvents) in order to smother the fire by depriving it of oxygen (the fire blanket principle).

This film also provides excellent resistance to re-ignition.

ENVIRONMENT

The raw materials selected by BIOex in the design and development of the fire fighting product have a minimum impact on the environment.
