Typhoon AFFF 3%
TYPHOON 3%- AFFF is a synthetic, aqueous film forming fire extinguishing foam concentrate, based on surface active agents. Special surfactants, fluorinated components and freeze protection characterize the composition of this outstanding product. Using only the latest C6 technology, the fluorinated components contained in TYPHOON 3%- AFFF are in full compliance with Directive EU 757/2010.
TYPHOON 3%- AFFF forms foam very readily and is used for both low and medium expansion foam applications. The film forming and re-ignition preventing ingredients of TYPHOON 3% - AFFF provide for extremely fast and effective extinction especially when used on class B fires. The aqueous film formed out of the draining foam solution spreads extremely fast and enhances the flowing properties and burn-back resistance of the foam. The extinction time is reduced considerably and the fire source cooled. The aqueous film even extinguishes areas scarcely covered with foam and prevents re-igniting of areas, where the foam layer is ruptured. The foam is stable and in combination with the aqueous film, it forms a lasting, gastight layer on flammable areas. Due to its high foam density a long throwing range can be achieved. The foam is oleophobic, i.e. it does not pick up fuel and is therefore particularly suitable for „sub-surface“ foam application. Plastics are covered evenly and wetted thoroughly. On hydrocarbon products TYPHOON 3%- AFFF can be applied as non-aspirated, aqueous solution by means of e.g. water monitors, water sprinklers, deluge systems etc.
TYPHOON 3%- AFFF is not suitable for use on polar solvents, e.g. alcohols.
TYPHOON 3%- AFFF does not contain silicones.
None of the raw materials used in our products are banned. Our foam concentrates comply with the latest environmental regulations, such as ‘Commission Regulation (EU) No 757/2010’, amending ‘(EC) No 850/2004’ TYPHOON 3%- AFFF will also comply with the ‘significant new use rule (SNUR)’ for long-chain perfluoroalkyl carboxylate proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency, which will come into effect in due course.
