Filmfoam 916K 6% AFFF – Class B Foam
Filmfoam 916K is a superior quality synthetic Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. Filmfoam 916K is a unique combination of hydrocarbon and fluorochemical surface active agents. It produces a vapour-sealing aqueous film that spreads rapidly over the fuel surface to provide rapid control and extinguishment.
- Film forming for fast flame knockdown and extinguishment.
- Burnback resistance and post fire security.
- Foam blanket reseals when ruptured by personnel or equipment.
Filmfoam 916K is used in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel and aviation kerosene) are stored, processed, or transported. It is used extensively on Rapid Intervention Vehicles (RIV) at major international airports and military bases where fast extinguishment with limited quantities of foam is essential for saving life. Other applications include hydrocarbon storage tanks, process areas, warehouses, road/rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platforms. Filmfoam 916K provides a vapour suppressing foam blanket on unignited hydrocarbon spills. Filmfoam 916K can also be used as a wetting agent in combating fires in Class A materials such as wood paper and tyres.
The fire performance of Filmfoam 916K is measured primarily against Underwriters Laboratories Standard UL 162 (7th Edition).
Filmfoam 916K has numerous approvals and is UL Listed Independently Tested and Certified to EN1568:2008 Part 3
Filmfoam 916K is intended for use at 6% (6 parts concentrate to 94 parts water). Filmfoam 916K is readily proportioned using conventional foam proportioning equipment such as portable and fixed (in-line) foam venturi proportioners, handline nozzles/branchpipes with pick-up tubes, balanced pressure variable flow proportioners, balanced pressure bladder tank proportioners and around- the-pump proportioners.
Filmfoam 916K can be used with air aspirating discharge devices such as low expansion branchpipes, monitors, top pourer sets, rimseal foam pourers, foam/water sprinklers and base (sub-surface) injection systems.
Filmfoam 916K can be used with non-aspirating discharge devices such as spray/fog branchpipes and nozzles, monitors, and spray/fog sprinklers. However, non-aspirated application is not recommended as the primary method of attack for major fires where a stable foam cover is essential.
Filmfoam 916K is suitable for use in combination with:
• Soft or hard, fresh, brackish or sea water.
• Dry powder extinguishing agents either separately or as twin agent systems.
• Expanded protein based or synthetic foams for application to a fire in sequence or simultaneously
