BIO FOR

Thanks to its wetting and foaming properties, BIO FOR is highly efficient for fighting class A solid fuel fires such as wildland forest fires, urban fires, industrial fires, waste recycling plants, as well as small class B hydrocarbon fires.

Wetting capability allows water to penetrate deeply into the solid, and foaming capability allows it to adhere to vertical surfaces, resulting in quicker fire extinguishment and long burn-back resistance.

BIO FOR class A foam is Newtonian and is an environmentally-friendly solution: 100% fluorine-free foam (F3) and totally biodegradable.

Features

Can be used in mobile and fixed foam fire fighting systems, Can be applied aerially from a helicopter bucket, Compatible with both air aspirated and non-air aspirating foam discharge devices., Newtonian firefighting foam compatible with all dosage systems (contains corrosion inhibitors)

Uses

Effective at Low, Medium and High Expansion, Usable from 0.1% to 3% depending on the concentration rate, Usable with fresh or seawater.

Performance

BIO FOR is a very concentrated wetting and foaming agent. It forms a foam blanket highly effective at low concentration, proportioned from 0.1% to 3%., Foaming properties: BIO FOR foaming properties give the ability to adhere to vertical surfaces for a long period with minimal run off and provide cooling effect., It reduces the water surface tension and penetrates deeply into the solid. The use of BIO FOR foam concentrate results in faster fire extinguishment and prevents from fire reignition., Wetting properties: BIO FOR wetting properties improve penetrating capability of water
