Perimeter Solutions announced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for basic function use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam expertise designed for extinguishing and securing each Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent concentrate is made with no siloxanes and is a combination of hydrocarbon surfactants and components that delivers wonderful foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using recent, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and sometimes show viscosity improve when involved with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams whereas keeping a similar viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This considerably improves storage, dealing with and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a rising number of international certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to Javier Castro, General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an example of the continuing technology innovation by the corporate within the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive development programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the highest stage of fire-suppression requirements,’ he said. ‘In addition to the wonderful firefighting performance, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its consistent viscosity when in touch with water, which is vastly different from many other fluorine-free foams on the market. This can have a dramatic effect on handling and use charges in firefighting operations.’ he mentioned.
A broad range of use applications
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with high fluidity and gradual drainage. This novel expertise allows SOLBERG VERSAGARD to carry out equally to fluorinated merchandise. It may be used with low-expansion foam equipment (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets to fight fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent gas fires. It is totally compatible and easily proportioned with standard firefighting equipment, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fireplace truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced stress systems and extra.
In addition to its wonderful foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting capability, making it also an efficient software for the extinguishment of Class A gasoline fires.
