Perimeter Solutions introduces SOLBERG VERSAGARD line of fluorine-free, alcohol-resistant firefighting foam concentrates for Class B functions

Perimeter Solutions introduced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for basic function use. Called เพรสเชอร์เกจน้ำ , 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 each Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent concentrate is made with no siloxanes and is a mix of hydrocarbon surfactants and components that delivers glorious foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using fresh, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently present viscosity enhance when involved with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams whereas keeping an identical viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This significantly improves storage, dealing with and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a growing variety of worldwide certifications, together with EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to Javier Castro, General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an example of the continuing expertise innovation by the company within the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive improvement programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the best stage of fire-suppression requirements,’ he stated. ‘In addition to the excellent firefighting efficiency, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its consistent viscosity when in contact with water, which is vastly different from many other fluorine-free foams available on the market. This can have a dramatic impact on dealing with and use rates in firefighting operations.’ he mentioned.
A broad vary of use applications
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with high fluidity and gradual drainage. This novel expertise permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to carry out similarly to fluorinated merchandise. It could also be used with low-expansion foam equipment (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units to battle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is fully compatible and easily proportioned with normal firefighting gear, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fire truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced stress techniques and extra.
In addition to its glorious foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting ability, making it also an efficient tool for the extinguishment of Class A gasoline fires.
Multiple certifications show effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad vary of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for varied areas and applications. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the maximum score and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 3 & 4 on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half 1 & 2 – for use with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units
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 company is pursuing further certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is on the market immediately on a worldwide foundation. Perimeter Solutions will be discussing the new foam know-how at the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
