AQUAFILM ™ ARN Range
AFFFs NEWTONIAN (LOW VISCOSITY) FOAM CONCENTRATES
Aquafilm ™ARN is a low viscosity AFFF foam compounds to fight polar and no polar fuel fires. The resistance against the typical destructive effect of the polar liquids on foams is achieved thanks to the nature of the special surfactants used in the composition, avoiding the use of polymers which increase viscosity and make difficult the dosage at low temperatures. Aquafilm ™ARN solves all these issues you might encounter with higher viscosity products.
Aquafilm™ARN uses very specific fluorinated and hydrocarbon surfactants in order to allow a good formation of an aqueous film on the surface of most hydrocarbon fuels, suppressing vapour leaks and preventing its contact with the oxygen and providing an excelling sealing on hot surfaces. Its formulation allows a great oil repellence, fluidity and burnback resistance.
Aquafilm™ ARM is a perfect tool to fight fires on storage tanks, bund, process areas, loading racks, power stations, airports or marine terminals amongst others.
Aquafilm™ ARN should be applied with low and medium expansion foam equipment (nozzles, monitors, foam chambers, etc.)
On hydrocarbon fires it can be applied also with non-aspirating devices (water spray nozzles and standard sprinklers). This foam is intended for special applications where conventional foams fail; it can be used fighting fires or covering spillages of chemicals to avoid the emission of toxic, harmful, flammable, etc., vapours, even acids. The foam has a very good resistance to all kind of chemicals.
Aquafilm™ ARN range is available from 0,5% to 3% to perform extraordinarily on fresh or sea water. It may be proportioned with standard equipment (in-line inductors, bladder tanks, pumps, balanced pressure systems, etc.) and special purpose ones for AFFF agents (e.g. Hydrofoam nozzles). Its low viscosity facilitates the dosage at low temperatures, until -20°C.
Aquafilm™ ARN range is certified by:
- UL 162 (UL Listed Products)
Aquafilm™ ARN is highly biodegradable and it is manufactured according to “C6 fluorocompounds” fulfilling the 2010/2015 EPA PFOA Stewardship Program.
