ECOPOL A/A+

ECOPOL A/A+ are superior quality synthetic Fluorine-Free Foam (F3) concentrates for aircraft fire protection, especially class B hydrocarbon fires, and approved by ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) standard.

In 2017, BIOEX develops ECOPOL A, a non-fluorinated foam formulated for the quick-fire extinguishing of aircraft fires (hydrocarbon fires). ICAO certified.

Resulting of long and deep lab studies, BIOEX launches in 2020, the new formula ECOPOL A+. A fluorine-free foam, enriched in polysaccharides and alkyl ether sulphate, offers a more stable and effective foam on a wider variety of hydrocarbon fires. ICAO and EN1568-3 certified.

ECOPOL A/A+ foam concentrates are efficient against aviation fire risks such as fuel spills, landing gear fire, engine fire, fuselage fire, aircraft hangar fire …

They provide fire control, fast extinguishment combined with excellent burn back resistance. The foam forms a foam blanket above fuel and sticks on vertical surfaces as body and fuselage to create thermal insulation.  

ECOPOL A/A+ non-fluorinated foams are viable environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional film-forming foam concentrates.

These Newtonian F3 foam concentrates are compatible with all ARFF foam equipment (ARFF fire vehicles, monitors, nozzles…).

Features

Compatible with aircraft fire truck, airport crash truck, fixed foam systems and mobile emergency response equipment, aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices, Their newtonian formulations (liquid) are easily proportioned by conventional firefighting foam equipment

Uses

Efficient on hydrocarbon fires such as diesel, kerosene JET A, JET A1, petroleum distillate, Usable at Low and Medium Expansion, Performant with fresh water, sea water and brackish water

Performance

ECOPOL A/A+ are effective on class B (hydrocarbon) fires. ECOPOL A+ is efficient on wider variety of hydrocarbon fires such as: kerosene, JET A, JET A1, It forms a foam blanket which spreads quickly above the fuel to seal the spill surface and cuts off oxygen supply, suppresses fuel vapours and preventing reignition, The foam sticks on vertical surfaces on aircraft parts as the fuselage and the body, providing thermal insulation which allows immediate protection and passenger evacuation, These non-fluorinated foams resist to foam contamination by hydrocarbons.

Certifications

ECOPOL A: ICAO performance level B tested and certifie, ECOPOL A+: ICAO performance level B tested and certified, European standard: EN 1568-3 certified

Warranty

10-year, Foam concentrates are manufactured in an ISO 9001 certified facility.
