Perimeter Solutions announced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for general purpose use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam technology designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent focus is made with no siloxanes and is a mix of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers excellent foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using contemporary, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently show viscosity enhance when in touch with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams while keeping an identical viscosity to traditional AR-AFFF foams. This considerably improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a growing variety of worldwide certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to xp2i , General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an instance of the continuing expertise innovation by the corporate in the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive improvement programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the highest level of fire-suppression necessities,’ he said. ‘In addition to the wonderful firefighting efficiency, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its constant viscosity when involved with water, which is vastly different from many different fluorine-free foams in the marketplace. This can have a dramatic effect on dealing with and use charges in firefighting operations.’ he stated.
A broad range of use applications
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with excessive fluidity and sluggish drainage. This novel technology allows SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform similarly to fluorinated products. It may be used with low-expansion foam gear (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge devices to struggle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is totally suitable and simply proportioned with standard firefighting gear, together with in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fireplace truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced pressure methods and more.
In addition to its glorious foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has glorious wetting capacity, making it also an efficient software for the extinguishment of Class A fuel fires.
Multiple certifications show effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for numerous areas and purposes. The firefighting foam concentrate:
Has achieved the maximum score and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half three & four on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – to be used with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge gadgets
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The firm is pursuing additional certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is out there immediately on a world basis. Perimeter Solutions might be discussing the model new foam know-how on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
