HYDROPOL - Fluorosynthetic versatile AR foam concentrate effective on hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires

Logo HYDROPOL

EFFECTIVENESS ON FIRES 

HYDROPOL fire-fighting foam concentrates have been developed to control fire risks on liquids miscible with water or not. They are therefore effective on hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires.

Depending on the equipment used, HYDROPOL can be used to generate Low, Medium or High Expansion foam.

For better effectiveness we recommend the application of HYDROPOL fire-fighting foam concentrate indirectly on the burning liquid by using an adjacent vertical surface so that it pours down its surface. An application using Medium expansion is also possible to spread the foam evenly and without contamination. We then refer to agentle application.

HYDROPOL foam concentrate's versatile AR property consists in forming a protective gel film on polar solvent type inflammable liquids to smother the fire as would a fire blanket. 
This film also provides excellent resistance to re-ignition.

The HYDROPOL line of additives is perfectly suited to extinguish liquid hydrocarbon or polar solvent fires.

HYDROPOL is available in several concentrations to better meet the needs of the  different existing automatic and semi-automatic extinguishing systems. At low concentrations it is possible to increase the autonomy of fire fighting teams, or to reduce the storage volume and thus reduce its purchase cost.

HYDROPOL 3

Usable at concentrations of 3%. 

HYDROPOL 6

Usable at concentrations of 6%.
