Vulcan 1% AFFF

  • Chemical Exports of Louisiana ~ Chemical Exports of Louisiana Technical Data Sheet

  • Vulcan 1% Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) is designed to offer superior performance and reliability for fixed system, industrial applications, airport fire protection, bulk fuel storage facilities, marine and municipal applications. Vulcan 1% AFFF is a specially formulated environmentally safe and worker friendly foam concentrate that is valuable in reducing environmental and worker liabilities while providing for rapid knockdown and extinguishment of Class B (non-polar) fuels.

  • Vulcan 1% AFFF contains a proprietary blend of specialized fluorocarbon surfactants. These surfactants reduce the surface tension of the foam solution to create a vapor-suppressing aqueous film on flammable hydrocarbon liquids. This unique chemistry ensures firefighters of having a high quality fluid foam blanket that will rapidly knock down hydrocarbon fires, flow around obstructions and seal off the fuel, preventing vapor release and subsequent re-ignition. Vulcan 1% AFFF demonstrates excellent burnback resistance, which affords emergency response personnel enhanced post fire security.

Vulcan 3% AFFF

Blackout® Class A Foam

  • Chemical Exports of Louisiana ~ Chemical Exports of Louisiana Technical Data Sheet

  • Blackout Class A foam concentrate is a biodegradable and non-reportable formula of foaming and wetting agents specifically designed for Class A applications. Blackout Class A foam is characterized as producing a high quality finished foam solution that increases the extinguishing effectiveness of water. Blackout Class A is an environmentally safe firefighting foam liquid concentrate that combines foaming, wetting and corrosion inhibiting agents. Blackout Class A contains highly effective surfactants that produce effective fire control with minimal personnel requirements.

  • Blackout Class A is formulated to provide for adhesion to vertical and horizontal surfaces. It controls the release rate of wetting and extinguishing agents from the foam blanket to deeply penetrate into Class A fuel sources. Blackout Class A is an excellent fire suppression agent that increases the effectiveness of water, providing for quicker fire extinguishment of Class A fuels. Blackout Class A reduces personnel requirements and allows for faster overhaul operations and minimizes re-kindles. Blackout Class A reduces the water needs of the incident by increasing its effectiveness by three to five times. Blackout Class A is effective for extinguishing structural, mobile home, trash, tire, rubbish, motor vehicle, wildland fires and other Class A applications where water is normally used. Blackout Class A is formulated to meet the requirements of NFPA 298, Foam Chemicals for Wildland Fire Control
