Fomtec ARC Miljö is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (3×6). Characteristics for film forming foam are that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires. Adding special polymers ensures it is also highly effective against polar solvents.
The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, which is heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon liquid surface.
When applied on polar solvents a polymeric membrane makes it possible for the foam blanket to extinguish effectively. This works also on foam destroying liquids such as MTBE.
Fomtec ARC Miljö should be used at 3% proportioned solution for hydrocarbon fires and 6% for polar solvent fires, in fresh or seawater.
Fomtec ARC Miljö does not contain any of the regular solvents such as glycolethers, e.g. Butyl Carbitol. Most other AFFF-foam concentrates contain glycolethers e.g. butyl carbitol. These solvents can have a serious impact on the environment and can contaminate ground water to a considerable extent. Fomtec ARC Miljö contains only little fluorine and still offers a superior fire performance. The use of environmentally friendly surfactants as well as the absence of APE (Alkylphenol ethoxylates) makes ARC Miljö a better choice.
Fomtec ARC Miljö is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuel as well as on polar solvent e.g. Isopropanol, Methanol and other foam destroying fuels such as MTBE. It uses only half the quantity to extinguish polar solvent fires in comparison to the traditional 3×6 foam concentrates. It can be used with both aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices. It is compatible with all dry chemical powders.
Fomtec ARC Miljö firefighting foam contains no glycolethers and has has been formulated using specially selected environmentally friendly raw materials. It has a low amount of fluorine.
