In order to make water suitable for extinguishing flammable liquids (Class B fires), a fixed percentage of foam concentrate is added. The foam formed by mixing in air can be used as an extinguishing agent. In order to make water more effective in extinguishing combustible solid materials (Class A fires), a low percentage of foam concentrate is added to increase its penetration power.
InnoVfoam supplies 5 different types of foam concentrate (Foam-Forming Agent):
The choice of which foam concentrate to use depends on a number of factors:
Fire class – Environmental requirements – Quality standards – Approval criteria – Extinguishing method – Foam expansion ratio.
