ECOPOL A

Fluorine-Free Foam (FFF)

ECOPOL A, Newtonian Fluorine-Free Foam concentrate (F3) designed for aircraft risks

Description

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

Fluorine-Free, ECOPOL A is the environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional film-forming foam concentrates in aircraft fire safety.

ECOPOL A firefighting foam concentrate is efficient against aviation fire risks such as fuel spills, landing gear fire, engine fire, fuselage fire, aircraft hangar fire …

ECOPOL A foam concentrate provides fire control, fast extinguishment combined with excellent burnback resistance. The foam forms a foam blanket above fuel and sticks on vertical surfaces as body and fuselage.  

This newtonian F3 foam concentrate is compatible with all ARFF foam equipment.

FIRE EXTINGUISHING PERFORMANCES

ECOPOL A is effective on class B (hydrocarbon) fires such as: kerosene, gasoline, JET A, JET A1, petroleum distillate… It provides fast fire extinguishment combined with excellent burnback resistance.  

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 blanket has long drainage time.

ECOPOL A foam sticks on vertical surfaces providing cooling effect on aircraft parts as the fuselage and the body for additional fire suppression which allows for passenger evacuation.

The fluorine-free foam is resistant to contamination thanks to a combination of surfactants.

ENVIRONMENT

ECOPOL A is harmless to the environment, 100% biodegradable and totally fluorine-free.

Completely free of fluorine derivatives (PFOS, PFOA, 6:2 FTS…) recognized as Persistent in the environment, Bioaccumulable and Toxic for living organism, ECOPOL A Fluorine-Free Foam meets European Commission Regulation EU 2017/1000 and is compliant with EPA 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Programme.

ECOPOL A also meets airport fire safety policy on minimising environmental impact.

APPLICATIONS

ECOPOL A has been specially formulated for Airport Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) risks and fires such as: engine, landing gear, fuselage, cabin, helicopter, fuel spill, fuel line, aircraft hangar, terminal, hydrocarbon storage tank…

Aircraft fire services can use the ECOPOL A on direct application by the airport fire truck long distance monitor and completed by a fire hose.
