Niagara is a superior quality Alcohol Resistant Film-Forming FluroProtein (AR-FFFP) fire fighting foam concentrate at 3% induction rate for extinguishing and securing both flammable hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fires.
Easy pouring and induction, even at -18°C (0°F)
Film-forming foam with fast knockdown
Extremely low environmental impact
Highly versatile – eliminates need to stock a variety of foam types
Detergent-free for high resistance to fuel pick-up
Foam blanket re-seals when disrupted by personnel or equipment
Reduced stocks, low cost storage, long shelf life and low usage levels provide maximum value for money.
Cutting-edge chemistry enables special fluorocarbon surfactants to be combined with a protein base to produce fast control and extinguishment on hydrocarbons with a vapour-sealing aqueous film equivalent to that of a top quality synthetic AFFF. These surfactants “seal” the bubble against attack from polar solvents, providing a highly effective floating foam layer on a wide range of solvent chemicals.
The protein base material provides a tough cohesive foam blanket with high heat resistance and excellent post-fire security, protecting for longer against reignition when compared to detergent based AR type foams. Easy pouring and induction Niagara does not contain any polymers that cause conventional AR type concentrates to be viscous.
It is therefore easy to pour from the drum when used with portable foam equipment or when filling bulk storage tanks for fixed systems. High fluidity means that proportioning is quick, easy and accurate with both portable inductors and fixed balanced pressure proportioners.
Niagara is biodegradable and virtually non-toxic to aquatic organisms. It is based on a natural protein foaming agent and contains no harmful synthetic detergents, glycol ethers, alkyl phenol ethoxylates (APEs), tolyltriazoles, or complexing agents
Ideal for use in high-risk applications where polar solvents (such as alcohols, ketones, and ethers) and/ or hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation kerosene) are stored, processed or transported.
