Phos-Chek Class A Foam & AFFF
Specially formulated to make water more effective. The unique combination of
surfactants significantly reduces water™s surface tension, creating a superior
foam blanket when mixed with air that surrounds fuels with a thick layer of
water. This creates a barrier between the fuel and the fire, knocking down the
fire faster that water alone, allowing fire fighters to see the areas of application.
Fully tested and approved the USDA Forest Service for use in multi-engine
fixed wing tankers and single engine air tankers, fixed wing water scoopers,
helicopters equipped with buckets and fixed-tanks and ground engines. USDA
Forest Service Approved, UL Listed. Contains no hazardous materials. Readily
biodegradable and has no flash point, making it safe to use near open flames.
Unaffected by freezing and thawing, giving it an unlimited shelf life. Highly
effective for fighting all types of Class A fires when mixed with water at a ratio
of 0.1% to 1.0%. It has proven its effectiveness in all application methods
including CAFS. An ideal tool for control of prescribed burning.
