Fomtec Enviro USP is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, diesel and aviation fuels as well as class A fires such as wood, paper, textiles etc.
Fomtec Enviro USP is especially suited whenever a fluorine-free alternative (PFAS) with high fire performance is required. Approved for use in sprinkler systems as per UL listing. Suitable for mobile firefighting by use of aspirating foam discharge devices such as foam branchpipes and monitors, where appli- cation rates and technique can be adjusted to the specifics
of each incident. Or in systems designed for use with the product based on recommended minimum applications rates, application duration and discharge devices.
Fire performance & Foaming
TThe fire performance of this product has been measured and documented according to “International Approvals” stated in this document. The design parameters depend on type of system and application. The use of the product should follow design guidelines. The foaming properties are depending on equipment used and other variables such as water and ambient temperatures. Average expansion 7:1, average ¼ drainage time 25:00 minutes using UNI 86 test nozzle.
Fomtec Enviro USP can be used together with foam compatible powders and other expanded foams. It is only intended for use with fresh water.
Fomtec Enviro USP concentrate should not be mixed with other foam concentrates.
For material compatibility please refer to Fomtec Technical Advices FTA 20 addressing the topic.
Tested to Boeing Specification Support Standard BSS7432 with conformity on all test parameters.
Fomtec Enviro USP is formulated using raw materials specially selected for their fire performance and their environmental profile. The product is totally free from fluorinated surfactants and polymers and other organohalogens, and therefore it does not contain any PFAS. Fomtec Enviro USP is 100% biodegrad-able. The handling of spills of concentrate or foam solutions should however be undertaken according to local regulations. Normally sewage systems can dispose foam solution based on this type of foam concentrate, but local sewage operators should be consulted.
Full details will be found in the Material Safety Datasheet
(MSDS). For more detailed information please consult Fomtec Technical Advices FTA 40.
Stored in original unbroken packaging the product will have a long shelf life. Shelf life in excess of 10 years will be found in temperate climates. As with all foams, shelf life will be depen-dent on storage temperatures and conditions.
For storage recommendations and material compatibility please refer to our Fomtec Technical Advices FTA 10 addressing the topic.
The foam concentrate should be tested annually. The testing should be made by a suitable laboratory for analysis of foam concentrates and should measure: pH, specific gravity, expansion, drainage time. Storage containers should be inspected and reevaluated for the suitability of the storage location in regard to temperature fluctuations (temperature should be as stable as possible). Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided.
