Fire Extinguishing Agents for Aviation

The featured foam concentrates comply with special demands on fire extinguishing additives for use at civil airports, airfields and hangar sites, as well as helidecks at hospital sites, off-shore oil rigs and wind farms.

All fire extinguishing foam concentrates are certified by inde-pendent, accredited testing laboratories in accordance with ICAO regulations and DIN EN-1568:2008.

Is a 100% biodegradable fire extinguishing foam concentrate designed for direct foam application on aviation fuels. It is type tested and certified in accordance with Annex 14 ICAO Level B. As vaPUREx® LV is a low-viscosity, newtonian liquid it can be used with all customary mobile and fixed proportioners up to its lowest usable temperature of -10 °C. A sophisticated blend of active materials very effectively prevents the foam from forming emulsions with the fuel despite the absence of fluorinated chemicals. This facilitates effective vapour suppression and thus a fast fire fighting success.

MOUSSOL®-FF 3x6 Plus – alcohol resistant universal fire extinguishing foam concentrate
Is a fluorine-free, 100% biodegradable, synthetic foam fire extinguishing concentrate, certified in accordance with annexe 14, ICAO level B. Polymer film forming components provide for high burn-back resistance of the foam at high temperatures. When used on alcohols, these components form a separating layer which provides for alcohol resistance of the foam. MOUSSOL®-FF 3/6 Plus foam is applied as low-expansion foam with an expansion factor of ≥ 5 or as medium expansion foam. CAFS application produced excellent fire extinguishing times. Where possible, pump supported induction of this pseudo-plastic product should be applied. Due to its complete bio-degradability, MOUSSOL®-FF 3/6 Plus is also used for training and fighting of class A fires.
Proportioning rate non-polar 3%, polar 6%
Type of foam low-expansion foam, medium-expansion foam, high-expansion foam
Frost resistance -15 °C
Annex ICAO Level B
Certificate of conformity EN 1568 part 1, 2, 3, 4, ICAO
Environmental acceptability Physiologically harmless and fully, very easily biodegradable.
Application Airports; helidecks; low-expansion foam systems for polar and non-polar liquids

STHAMEX®-AFFF ICAO C 3%
is our aqueous film forming foam concentrate, certified in accordance with annexe 14, ICAO level C. Its oustanding fire performance and excellent burn-back resistance exceeds ICAO level C requirements. It is suitable for use at large, category 8, 9 and 10 civil airports with increased risks from large aircrafts, as well as smaller airfields to maximise the use of limited foam stocks. The foam concentrate is admixed at 3% with all standard proportioning equipment or systems, and applied preferably as low expansion foam or non-aspirated foam solution. It is suitable for use in combination with foam compatible dry chemical powder. The aqueous film provides for a high level of burnback safety during rescue operations.
