Fire Fighting Foam Consultancy

Fluorinated Foams and Fluorine Free FoamF3

Guidelines, Regulations and Policies are changing regarding the use of fluorinated foams such as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF), particularly ones with large amounts of long chain fluorinated organic compound such as perfluorooctanesulphonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and precursors. Pressure is now being placed on companies to incorporate products that do not use persistent organic pollutants such as Fluorine Free Foam (F3).

With an ever increasing demand for more environmentally focused fire fighting foam to be introduced in to Foam Systems, you must ask yourself ; Are you ready and have you done enough to provide assurances that if you switch from fluorinated foams to F3 your hazard will be protected and your systems will function as intended ? There is conjecture and confusion relating to the use of fluorinated foams and F3, the data sheets and certificates supplied by concentrate manufacturers only explain a small part of the story around what is needed regarding foam selection for your specific needs.
