Usage: Compressed Air Foam Systems

Description

Chemguard EXTREME is the first and only foam concentrate designed specifically for Compressed Air Foam Systems (CAFS). EXTREME is a non-corrosive, non-toxic, and biodegradable Class “A” foam concentrate. When mixed with water in the correct proportion, it drastically changes the properties of water. It reduces the surface tension of the water, and produces foam, which allows the water to cling to vertical or horizontal surfaces without run off. This allows the water to absorb more heat and provides greater penetration into Class “A” fuels. 

FEATURES

    • Designed specifically for Compressed Air Foam Systems (C.A.F.S.).
    • Excellent properties for exposure protection requiring thick CAFS foam blankets.
    • Reduces water consumption by 3 to 5 times
    • Can be used with either fresh or salt water
    • Suitable with non-air-aspirating or aspirating handline nozzles
    • Suitable for use in Helicopter Bambi buckets
    • Suitable for use on rubber (tires), coal, paper and many other types of Class “A” fuels
    • Suitable for use through medium expansion nozzles on Class “A” or contained Class “B” flammable liquids
