First Response is the latest development of a budget conscious Class A foam concentrate that compares favorably to the performance of other economy foams such as Chemguard’s Class A foam products and Ansul Silv-ex Plus. First Response is manufactured by the makers of the well-known Phos-Chek brand fire suppression products. First Response is formulated to make water more effective for firefighting. The unique combination of surfactants significantly reduces water surface tension and, when mixed with air, creates a foam blanket that surrounds fuels with a thick layer of water. This creates a barrier between the fuel and the fire, knocking down the fire faster than water alone, and allows fire fighters to see the areas of application. Making the water more effective reduces the amount of water needed to extinguish the fire reducing water damage and increases fire fighter safety through quicker knockdown and reduced mop-up/overhaul requirements. First Response contains NO HAZARDOUS MATERIALS, is non corrosive, non-toxic, readily biodegradable, and has no flash point. It does not contain any fluorinated surfactants such as PFOS/PFOA, which are found only in Class B foams.

Class B foam is required for protection from and suppression of flammable liquid fires. Typical applications include chemical and petrochemcial plants, refineries, aircraft rescue and fire fighting, LPG/LNG terminals, etc.Explore
Quickly extinguishes and prevents reignition for flammable liquid pool fires. Ideal for storage tanks, railcars, automobile gas tanks, or any fire involving flammable liquid storage.Explore
Liquid fire extinguishers are highly effective and cause far less peripheral damage than powder extinguishers. Class a or Class B additives significantly improve their effectiveness.Explore
Fire suppressant gel is thickened water typically used to coat a structure to protect it from impinging fire. Gel wraps a “blanket of water” around any structure, keeping it cool and preventing ignition from nearby fires.Explore
