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 general function use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam focus is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam know-how 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 mixture of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers wonderful foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties utilizing fresh, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently present viscosity improve when involved with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very secure foams while preserving an analogous viscosity to traditional AR-AFFF foams. This considerably improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a rising number of international certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.

This can have a dramatic impact on dealing with and use rates in firefighting operations.’ he stated.
A broad vary of use applications
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with excessive fluidity and gradual drainage. This novel expertise permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform similarly to fluorinated merchandise. It may be used with low-expansion foam equipment (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units to fight fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is absolutely suitable and simply proportioned with normal firefighting gear, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fireplace truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced pressure methods and more.
In addition to its wonderful foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has glorious wetting ability, making it also an effective device for the extinguishment of Class A fuel fires.
Multiple certifications demonstrate effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for numerous regions and applications. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the utmost rating and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half three & 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 – to be used 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 out there instantly on a world foundation. Perimeter Solutions might be discussing the new foam technology on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
