The foam concentrates produced by USAFE also carry certification from prestigious international organizations like UL, IMO, Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), and ICAO.

Here are some of the key features of USAFE firefighting foam concentrates:

  • Stable Foam Blanket: USAFE Fire Fighting Foam create a more stable foam blanket, which is less likely to dissipate or collapse. This is the most effective way to put out fires and stop them from spreading.
  • Better Foam Adhesion: USAFE's foam is made from a special formula that makes it stick to vertical surfaces like walls and ceilings. This makes it ideal for extinguishing fires in buildings and other structures.
  • Highly Heat-Absorbent: This firefighting foam concentrates absorb heat effectively, cooling the fire and reducing radiant heat. As a result it also protects firefighters and other personnel and prevents the fire from spreading.
  • Minimizes Smoke and Fumes: Our foam compound's stability helps to reduce smoke and fumes, improving visibility and firefighting operations.
  • Optimum Drain Time: Foam drain time is the time it takes for a foam blanket to lose half its volume. It is considered when developing foam concentrates to ensure optimal performance in all firefighting applications. Drain time is an important factor in determining foam quality, as it affects the foam's ability to adhere to surfaces, extinguish fires, and prevent re-ignition.

Frequently Asked Questions

Firefighting foam concentrates are liquid chemicals that, when mixed with water, form a stable foam that can be used to extinguish fires.Foam concentrates work by forming a barrier between the fuel and oxygen, which prevents the fire from burning. Foam can also cool the fuel and prevent it from evaporating, which can help to prevent reignition.

The different types of firefighting foam concentrates can be classified according to their performance characteristics and the types of fires they are used to extinguish.
Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF): AFFF is a synthetic foam that is effective on a wide range of flammable liquids, including jet fuels, gasoline, and diesel fuel. It forms a thin film on the surface of the burning liquid, which prevents oxygen from reaching the fuel and extinguishes the fire.

Alcohol Resistant AFFF (AR-AFFF): AR-AFFF is a type of AFFF that is specifically designed to extinguish fires involving alcohols. Alcohols can break down AFFF, so AR-AFFF contains special additives that make it more resistant to alcohols.

High expansion foam concentrates produce a large volume of foam from a small amount of concentrate. They are used to extinguish fires in confined spaces, such as aircraft hangars and ship holds.

Hazmat foam is a specialized type of foam that is used to suppress the release of hazardous vapors from spills of hazardous chemicals. It is formulated to be effective on a wide range of chemicals, including acids, bases, and reactive chemicals. Hazmat foam forms a stable blanket over the spill, which prevents the hazardous vapors from escaping into the air.

Class A Foam: Class A foam is a synthetic foam that is specifically designed to extinguish fires involving wood, paper, and other common combustibles. Class A foam lowers the surface tension of water, which allows the water to penetrate deeper into the burning material and extinguish the fire.

Film Forming Fluoroprotein (FFFP): FFFP is a synthetic foam that is similar to AFFF, but it contains a higher concentration of fluorocarbon surfactants. This makes FFFP more effective on polar solvents, which are water-miscible flammable liquids. FFFP is also more resistant to contamination by fuel than AFFF.

Protein Foam: Protein foam is a natural foam that is made from proteins extracted from soybeans, corn, or milk. Protein foam is effective on a wide range of flammable liquids, but it is not as effective as AFFF or FFFP on polar solvents. Protein foam is also more susceptible to contamination by fuel than AFFF or FFFP.

Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) as a superhero for fires, especially the ones with liquids like oil. It’s like a magical water shield that stops the fire from spreading.

Here’s the simple breakdown:

1. Magic Foam Mix: AFFF is like a special mix of water and some cool chemicals. When we mix it up, it becomes a superhero foam.

2. Super Shield: When we spray this foam on a fire involving liquids, it doesn’t just sit there. It quickly spreads out and makes a super-thin shield on top of the liquid.

3. Keep Out, Oxygen!: This shield is like a force field. It stops oxygen from getting to the liquid, which is crucial because fire needs oxygen to stay alive.

4. No More Boom!: The shield also stops the liquid from letting out those explosive vapors. It’s like telling the fire, “Hey, calm down, no more big booms!”

5. Cool Vibes: The water in the foam helps cool things down. Imagine it as a refreshing splash on a hot day, but for the fire. It doesn’t like the coolness, so it chills out.

6. Blanket Party: The foam covers the whole liquid surface, like a cozy blanket. This stops the fire from spreading and causing more trouble.

7. No Comeback: Even after we use the foam once, it stays on guard. It doesn’t let the fire come back for a second round. It’s like a superhero that never takes a break.

Remember, AFFF is not just for one type of liquid fire. It can handle all sorts, making it a true hero for different fire situations. So, when there’s a fiery villain made of liquids, AFFF is the hero we call to save the day!

There are two types: regular foam (we’ll call it AFFF) and a special kind that’s like a superhero with a shield against tricky fires involving alcohol (we’ll call it AR-AFFF).

So, AFFF is awesome for stopping fires caused by regular stuff like gasoline or diesel. But, here’s the catch – if the fire involves alcohol or similar tricky stuff, AFFF might not do the best job.

Now, here’s where our superhero with a shield (AR-AFFF) comes in. This foam is like a superhero that’s great at stopping fires from both regular things like gasoline and those tricky alcohol-based fires. It has a special power to resist the tricky stuff and keeps the fire under control.

So, in simple terms, if you’re dealing with normal fires, AFFF is your buddy. But if there’s a chance alcohol or other tricky things are involved, the superhero with a shield, AR-AFFF, is the one to call. It’s like having the right superhero for the right job!

Hey there! So, you know those foamy things firefighters use to put out fires? Well, they come in special containers, like big barrels or tanks. These containers are made of tough materials that won’t let the foamy stuff leak out or get ruined.

The foamy stuff needs to stay just right – not too hot or too cold. So, the containers have tricks like seals and vents to keep everything in check. Also, they don’t like the sun too much, so the containers usually have a cover to keep the foam cool and strong.

When it’s time to move the foam, the containers are securely packed to make sure they don’t tip over or get banged up. Safety first, you know? And there are rules we follow – like making sure the foam is okay with the firefighting gear and checking everything regularly to make sure nothing’s broken or leaking.

Hey there! So, in the world of firefighting, they’re working on making foam that puts out fires. One cool thing is they’re trying to make it without using stuff that’s bad for the environment, like PFAS. They’re also trying to create foam that works really well but doesn’t hang around in the environment for too long.

Scientists are adding special things to the foam to make it even better at putting out fires. Plus, they want it to last a long time on the shelf without going bad. Imagine having a superhero foam that’s always ready to save the day!

They’re also getting smart with it. They’re using cool technology to control how the foam is used, almost like a superhero remote control. And for firefighters, they’re creating virtual reality games to practice using the foam – it’s like a video game, but for learning important skills.

Oh, and there are rules and standards to make sure the foam is safe and good for the environment. They’re even making different kinds of foam for different situations – like a foam that’s great for small spaces or tricky places.

So, that’s the scoop on the latest in firefighting foam – making it better, safer, and smarter for all the heroes out there fighting fires!
