THE ONLY FLUORINE-FREE FOAM CONCENTRATE IN THE WORLD PROVIDING MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE LEVEL!
Since 1998, BIOex designs and manufactures the latest generation of ecological foam concentrates and also proposes conventional foams for use in firefighting (Solid class A fires, Liquid class B Hydrocarbon fires, Liquid class B Polar solvent fires, Toxic gaseous vapours).
2002: At BIOex we were convinced of the harmfulness of fluorine derivatives and were already working to preserve our environment by launching ECOPOL, the first fluorine-free multi-purpose foam concentrate.
End of 2015: BIOex launches the new formula ECOPOL F3 HC specially developed to create the first fluorine-free 3% foam concentrate with an exceptionally fast extinguishing action on hydrocarbon fires.
2017 : BIOex launches the new formula ECOPOL PREMIUM to achieve the best performance classification:
- European standards – EN 1568 1. 2. 3. 4 :
- Effective at Medium Expansion – EN 1568-1 : Conform
- Effective at High Expansion – EN 1568-2 : Conform
- Equivalent to the best AFFF – EN 1568-3 : Certified 1A / 1A
- Highest AR classification – EN 1568-4 : Certified 1A / 1A
- Oil industry : LASTFIRE
- Forest Fire standards : CEREN Certificate
ECOPOL PREMIUM, AN EXCELLENT FOAM CONCENTRATE FOR USE ON HYDROCARBON AND POLAR SOLVENT FIRES:
- Efficiency in direct application equal to that of AFFF
- Exceptional quality of the protective gel film on polar solvents
- Resistance to re ignition as reliable as the best protein based foams
- As efficient with fresh water as with sea water
- 100% free of fluorine derivatives (without PFC, PFT, PFOA and PFOS)

GREATER EFFICIENCY ON HYDROCARBON AND POLAR SOLVENT FIRES!
The extinguishing effectiveness of ECOPOL PREMIUM on hydrocarbon fires can be compared to an AFFF foam concentrate (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) that contains fluorine. The multi-purpose AR (Alcohol Resistant) foam concentrate works by generating a protective gel film on the surface of all types of flammable polar solvent liquids.
ECOPOL PREMIUM provides exceptional resistance to burn back similar to fluoroprotein foam concentrates.
A POWERFUL EXPANSION CAPABILITY WHICH INCREASES THE EFFECTIVENESS!
The adhesive nature of the foam generated, combined with its slow drainage time, offers durable adherence on vertical surfaces. ECOPOL PREMIUM is efficient on solid fires by its wetting and expansion properties.
As a totally fluorine-free foam concentrate, ECOPOL PREMIUM is not subject to current or forthcoming regulatory controls on the prohibition on products containing fluorine derivatives.
ECOPOL PREMIUM is 100 % free of fluorine derivatives (PFCs, PerFluorinated Compounds) recognized as persistent in the environment, that are detrimental as bioaccumulables and toxic to living organisms.
ECOPOL PREMIUM is classified as readily biodegradable. It breaks down rapidly with no PBT (Persistent Bioaccumulable Toxic) residue and contains no halogen derivatives.
ECOPOL PREMIUM becomes the real solution that combines high performance of extinction on all types of fires and our environment protection!
