AUXQUIMIA is strongly committed to our protection of the environment, striving to minimize the impact and achieving a sustainable development.
Aligned with this philosophy, AUXQUIMIA has launched an Environmental Management System to obtain, back in 2010 the approval from BUREAU VERITAS according to the standard ISO-14001:2004.
Auxquimia offers a wide range of C6 foam that meet the strictest standards. The Aquafilm ®ARN range at 1×1% for example includes a Newtonian solution that is Lastfire certified; UL listed; and EN 1568-compliant – and which is ideal for tough hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires.
However, our research and development has not just been focused on C6. In fact, Auxquimia began developing fluorine-free foam back in the 1990s.
Our range of fluorine-free foam Unipol-FF® has been evolving through the years to cover most industrial and civil applications. In 2011 it achieved a rating of 1B in Heptane and 1A on Acetone according to EN-1568:2008, in 2012 it received Lastfire certification and in 2014 was given UL listing.
In 2015 Unipol-FF®3/6 achieved UL 162 listing (Standard for foam equipment and liquid concentrates) with polar solvents, an extraordinary achievement given that all other fluorine-free foams have only been listed with hydrocarbon fuels.
Furthermore, sprinkler tests based on the same protocol were also carried out with the challenging polar solvents acetone, ethanol and isopropyl alcohol, and the results again showed very good extinguishing times.
Our foams are under constant development and we have set ourselves some further challenges for the future.
The challenges we face may be constantly evolving, but so are our capabilities to meet them.
