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

Perimeter Solutions introduced the introduction of a brand new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for basic objective use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam expertise designed for extinguishing and securing both 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 mix of hydrocarbon surfactants and components that delivers excellent foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties using fresh, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and sometimes present viscosity improve when in contact with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very secure foams whereas maintaining a similar viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This significantly improves storage, dealing with and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a rising 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 instance of the continuing expertise innovation by the corporate in the area of fluorine-free foams. ‘At Perimeter Solutions, we’re engaged in an intensive improvement programme for fluorine-free technology that meets the very best degree of fire-suppression requirements,’ he stated. ‘In addition to the excellent firefighting performance, one of many key advances of SOLBERG VERSAGARD is its consistent viscosity when involved with water, which is vastly completely different from many different fluorine-free foams in the marketplace. This can have a dramatic effect on dealing with and use charges in firefighting operations.’ he stated.
A broad range of use purposes
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate secure foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. First know-how allows SOLBERG VERSAGARD to carry out similarly to fluorinated merchandise. It may be used with low-expansion foam tools (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units to battle fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is totally compatible and simply proportioned with commonplace firefighting tools, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, hearth truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced strain techniques and more.
In addition to its wonderful foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has excellent wetting ability, making it also an efficient tool for the extinguishment of Class A gas fires.
Multiple certifications reveal effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad range of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for varied areas and applications. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the maximum ranking and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 half three & four on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is licensed to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 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 further certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is on the market immediately on a world foundation. Perimeter Solutions might be discussing the model new foam technology on the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
