PHOS-CHEK® 3×6% AR-AFFF foam concentrate is a mixture of water, hydrocarbon surfactants, solvents, C6 fluorosurfactants and fluoropolymers. The product is a 3% x 6% concentrate that is intended to be proportioned at 3% for hydrocarbon fuel fires and at 6% for polar solvent fuel fires.
PHOS-CHEK 3×6% AR-AFFF is designed for rapid control and knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film on hydrocarbon fuels or a polymer membrane on polar solvent fuels that minimize vapor release, a foam blanket that separates the fuel from the air, and continual draining of water from the foam blanket provides cooling at the fuel surface. 3×6% AR-AFFF’s may have given way to the more modern 3×3 AR-AFFF’s but many legacy systems still use 3×6%’s.

Class A Foam improves water effectiveness. Provides fast knock down. Slows evaporation and improves penetration in deep seated fires. Perfect for CAFS.Explore
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
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
