Tailoring HAZMAT Foam for Different Chemicals

Tackling Reactive Products: These are the chemicals that can be a bit unpredictable. For such substances, we rely on medium expansion foam. The process is straightforward—apply a minimum of 20 liters of foam per square meter every minute. Ensure that the foam maintains a thickness of about 50 centimeters (20 inches) until the chemicals are safely managed.

Safely Managing Non-Reactive Products: Some chemicals are less temperamental, but you still need protection. For these situations, we use NEUTRAL PLUS foam, mixed at a 6% concentration, along with medium expansion. Apply at least 10 liters of foam per square meter every minute. Keep the foam layer at a consistent 50-centimeter (20-inch) thickness until the chemicals are under control.
