The AFFF foam concentrates FILMOPOL and BIOFILM are now UL 162-certified. FILMOPOL, an AFFF fluorosynthetic AR versatile foam concentrate, is especially effective at:
- Putting out hydrocarbon fires fast owing to its AFFF properties (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam)
- Forming a protective film gel over the surface of all types of flammable liquid (class B polar solvents) due to its AR property (Alcohol-Resistant) offering remarkable resistance to re-ignition of the exposed combustible materials.
BIOFILM, a fluorosynthetic AFFF foam concentrate, is designed to put out hydrocarbon fires. Its film-forming property gives it excellent extinguishing speed on hydrocarbon fires. Having the products certified by recognized independent laboratories is essential for BIOex. These certifications are a guarantee to users of the controlled quality of BIOex products.
UL162 2UL (Underwriters Laboratories) is an independent American test laboratory which defines safety standards for different types of product in the USA. These standards are demanded in many countries around the world.
Standard UL162 validates the extinguishing power of fire-fighting foam concentrates on class B fires (hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires) to a defined protocol. It also requires checking of manufactured batches and regular inspection of the production site.
