Firefoam 103b Class A foam concentrate is specially formulated for aerial and ground applications. Class A foams are used in direct initial aerial attack, for mop up, and for suppression of deep seated fires. The basic action of the foaming agents is physical. Foaming agents improve and extend the cooling effect of water and reduce the gaseous exchanges delaying moisture loss around the fuel cell producing a progressive release of water and wetting agent. They form a thin insulating layer which produces a better coating on the fuel.
Class A foams have been shown to significantly improve the effectiveness of water. Class A foam results in faster knockdown and reduced risk of reignition. Class A foams are ideal for use in CAFS.
