Fomtec FFFP 6% should be used as a 6% proportioned solution in fresh or sea water. The correct proportioning or mixture ratio is 6 parts of concentrate and 94 parts of water.
Fomtec FFFP 6% is intended for use on B class hydrocarbon fuel fires such as oil, petroleum and aviation fuels. Fomtec FFFP 6% can be applied directly onto the fire surface and is also suitable for subsurface injection. It is compatible with all dry powders and can be used in dry powder/foam twin agent systems.
Fire Performance & Foaming
The fire performance of this product has been measured and documented according to "International Approvals" stated in this document. The foaming properties are depending on equipment used and other variables such as water and ambient temperatures. Average expansion 7,5:1, average ¼ drainage time 04:30 minutes using UNI 86 test nozzle.
Fomtec FFFP 6% can easily be proportioned at the correct dilution using conventional equipment such as:
- Inline inductors
- Balanced pressure, variable flow proportioning systems
- Bladder tanks
- Around the pump proportioning systems
- Water turbine driven foam proportioners
- Self inducting branch pipes and nozzles
The equipment should be designed to the foam type.

Fomtec FFFP 6% is formulated using raw materials specially selected for their fire performance and their environmental profile. Fomtec FFFP 6% is biodegradable. The handling of spills of concentrate or foam solutions should however be undertaken according to local regulations. Normally sewage systems can dispose foam solution based on this type of foam concentrate, but local sewage operators should be consulted in this respect. This product contains NO PFOS or PFOA.
Full details will be found in the Material Safety Datasheet (MSDS).
