AFFF is Aqueous Film Forming Foam concentrate(AFFF) has characteristic of film forming, due to which flame is rapidly knocked down & sealing of fuel surface is achieved. AFFF is formulated with Fluorinated surfactants, hydrocarbon surfactants and stabilisers to give best performance and long shelf life. Due to presence of Fluorocarbon surfactant the foam has a positive spreading coefficient on the surface of the fuel, giving fast coverage and thereby helping the fire fighters in saving precious time.
AFFF is available in 3 % and 6 % concentrate.
It can be used with fresh water or seawater.
It is suitable for application with standard low expansion foam making equipment like in-line inductors, different types of foam branches, foam monitors etc.
It is recommended for both Civil & Military aviation.
It can be used by rapid intervention crash tenders to give highly improved and guaranteed
protection against fire risks for inflammable liquids.
The high foaming characteristics combined with film forming ability makes it an ideal choice as a rapid extinguishing agent for fighting fires particularly of aviation where speed is very essential and critical.
