USDA Forest Service Approved! Formulated to provide better adhesion to trees and shrubs, controlled wetting and extinguishing, and deep penetration. The use of Class A Foam increases the efficiency of water many times over. Different modes of application require different mix ratios. USDA Forest Service approved for “Interim Requirements for Wildland Fire Foam 5100-Fire, August, 1986.”
Firefoam 103b Class A foam was introduced over 20 years ago and has been widely used by government agencies around the world who are responsible for municipal, wildland, and industrial fire management. FF103b is a superior foam that develops thick, long lasting foam at low use rates.
Firefoam 103b has been tested and qualified by the U.S. Forest Service. The U.S. Forest Service tests for corrosion properties along with environmental, safety and health testing. These tests ensure that the product is safe for the personnel who use it and safe for the environment. The U.S. Forest Service tests also ensure that the product will not deteriorate equipment, apparatus, or aircraft used to mix or apply the product.
All Phos-Chek and Firefoam Class A foam concentrates are specifically formulated to make water more effective. The unique combination of surfactants significantly reduces water's surface tension, creates a superior foam blanket when mixed with air that surrounds fuels with a thick layer of water, creates a barrier between the fuel and the fire, allows fire fighters to see application areas, and knocks down fire faster than water alone.
