3- AR-AFFF /ALCOHOL RESISTANT

Necessary Stuff

Environmentally formulated FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF is the newest generation in Alcohol-Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam. Using Green Agent Technology™, the environmentally friendly formula, prevents environmental hazards and demonstrates our long term commitment to the environment. produces a stable, heat resistant and self-sealing blanket; it will not clog, gum, or corrode foam systems and equipment, providing an unparalleled performance. FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF contains ZERO hazardous materials and has a reduced viscosity when compared to a majority of AR-AFFF products. This reduction in viscosity permits FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF to be used in all types of foam portioning systems, inline eductors, and standard foam equipment without adverse effects.

CERTIFICATIONS:

  1. UL/UL Canada/ 162 Listed Foam Liquid Concentrate 14CY, NFPA 11 and 16, for non- miscible, non-polar solvents or hydrocarbon fuels.

  3. ICAO International Civil Aviation Organization performance Level B approved.
  4. ISO Insurance Services Organization compliant for Class B foam.
  5. EN 1568-3:2008 foam liquid concentrate approved.

FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF is UL 162 approved 7th edition for 3% on hydrocarbon fires (non-water misable fuel) and 3% on polar solvent fires (water misable fuel).
FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF is LASTFIRE (Large Atmospheric Storage Tanks) approved at 1% for hydrocarbon fires under Resource Protection International a Fire Hazard Management (FHM) group.


COMPATIBILITY:

is compatible with other brands of foam as finished foam.
is compatible with other FireAde 2000 products as concentrates.


FLUSHING INSTRUCTIONS:

Flushing is mandatory for all Class B foam tanks before adding FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF. Once FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF has been added, flow product to ensure foam tank is operating properly.


SHELF LIFE:

FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF has a 20-25 year shelf-life in a sealed container.


APPLICATIONS:

► US CLASS B /EUROPEAN CLASS B/C FIRES

Class B fires involve flammable or combustible liquids or gaseous fuels. European/ Australasian system Class B fires involve flammable liquids and Class C burning gases.

► Non-Polar Solvents: Hydrocarbons: Gasoline, Gasoline w/10% Ethanol, Jet A, JP4/5/8, Crude Oil, Diesel, Etc.
     ♦ Liquid Foam Concentrate: 0.10 [gpm/ft2] @ 3% for 10-20 minutes. Reapply as needed.

► Polar Solvents: Alcohols/Ethanol’s: Ethanol, Gasoline w/85% Ethanol, MEK, MTBE, IPA, Etc.
    ♦ Liquid Foam Concentrate: 0.17 [gpm/ft2] @ 3% for 20-30 minutes. Reapply as needed.

► ADDITIONAL APPLICATIONS
FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF may be used on a substantial range of Class A and Class B fires. Typical applications include warehouses, spills, storage tanks,loading docks, loading racks, process areas, etc. FireAde® 2000 AR-AFFF is applicable at 0.25% - 1.0% on Class A fires as a wetting agent.

Caution: Only apply if proper training and equipment is being used. Improper application can cause serious injury. Contact Fire Service Plus for technical support.
