Perimeter Solutions introduced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for common function use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam technology designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent focus is made with no siloxanes and is a mixture of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers wonderful foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties utilizing recent, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently show viscosity enhance when in contact with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams while maintaining an analogous viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This considerably improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a rising number of worldwide certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to Javier Castro, General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an instance of the persevering with know-how innovation by the company in the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive growth programme for fluorine-free know-how that meets the highest stage of fire-suppression requirements,’ he mentioned. ‘In เกจวัดแรงดัน250bar to the excellent firefighting performance, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its consistent viscosity when in contact with water, which is vastly completely different from many different fluorine-free foams in the marketplace. This can have a dramatic impact on dealing with and use rates in firefighting operations.’ he said.
A broad range of use applications
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. This novel technology permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform similarly to fluorinated merchandise. It could also be used with low-expansion foam tools (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets to struggle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent gasoline fires. It is fully compatible and easily proportioned with standard firefighting gear, together with in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fireplace truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced strain methods and more.
In addition to its wonderful foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting capability, making it also an efficient software for the extinguishment of Class A gasoline fires.
Multiple certifications reveal effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad vary of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for varied regions and applications. The firefighting foam concentrate:
Has achieved the utmost rating and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half three & four on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – for use with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The company is pursuing extra certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is on the market instantly on a global basis. Perimeter Solutions shall be discussing the new foam expertise on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
