Perimeter Solutions introduces SOLBERG VERSAGARD line of fluorine-free, alcohol-resistant firefighting foam concentrates for Class B functions

Perimeter Solutions introduced the introduction of a brand new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for general purpose use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam focus is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam technology designed for extinguishing and securing each Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. This biodegradable and non-persistent concentrate is made with no siloxanes and is a combination of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers wonderful foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties utilizing fresh, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and sometimes present viscosity enhance when in contact with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams while preserving an identical viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This significantly improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a growing number of international certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.
According to Javier Castro, General Manager for Perimeter Solutions Fire Safety Group, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is an example of the continuing know-how innovation by the corporate within the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive development programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the highest degree of fire-suppression requirements,’ he stated. ‘In addition to the excellent firefighting performance, one of the key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its constant viscosity when involved with water, which is vastly different from many other fluorine-free foams available on the market. This can have a dramatic effect on dealing with and use charges in firefighting operations.’ he mentioned.
A broad range of use purposes
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate stable foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. This novel expertise permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to carry out equally to fluorinated products. Elementary may be used with low-expansion foam gear (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units to battle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent gasoline fires. Now is fully suitable and simply proportioned with commonplace firefighting gear, together with in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fire truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced strain techniques and extra.
In addition to its excellent foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting capacity, making it additionally an efficient tool for the extinguishment of Class A fuel fires.
Multiple certifications demonstrate effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for varied regions and applications. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the maximum ranking and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 3 & 4 on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half 1 & 2 – for use with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The firm is pursuing additional certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is out there immediately on a world foundation. Perimeter Solutions will be discussing the new foam know-how on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
