Aqueous Film-Forming Foam concentrates

BIOEX AFFF foams (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam) contain fluorosurfactants to efficiently extinguish and provide vapor suppression of class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as gasoline, petroleum, benzene, kerosene, oil (water non-miscible flammable liquids). AFFF foams are mostly involved in large-scale fires in high-risks industries: refineries, offshore platforms and airports.

BIOEX’s AFFF produces high-quality foam blanket on the fuel surface by forming an aqueous film which forms a fuel vapor barrier. The foam blanket blocks oxygen which supply to the burning fuel and quickly flows over the flammable liquids to form an aqueous film and seal the fuel surface while suppressing fuel vapors. The foam blanket has a cooling effect to rapidly extinguish fires. BIOEX AFFF foams have fast fire knockdown and long burnback resistance characteristics.

AFFF can be used at Low, Medium and High Expansion, also used in gentle and forceful applications. BIOEX fire suppression agents can be used with a wide range of firefighting equipment. BIOEX high performance synthetic foams are certified under international standards (EN1568, UL, NFPA, LASTFIRE, IMO…). Foam concentrates are also available in AR-AFFF for water-miscible fuels in fire.

BIOEX high performance AFFF are produced using modern C6 fluorosurfactants, which are considered safer and have less impact on the environment due to their short-chain. BIOEX firefighting foams do not contain PFOS (Perfluorooctyl Sulfonate, also named C8) and PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid). The use of PFOS & PFOA is now restricted due to their impact on the environment and health.
