DESCRIPTION

AR AFFF 3-3 - Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam - this concentrate is formulated from special fluoro-chemical and hydrocarbons surfactant, high molecular weight polymers and solvents. It is a multipurpose foam as it has applications in both class A & class B type fires - water miscible (polar solvents) & water immiscible fuels (Hydrocarbons).  When applied over polar solvents it forms a polymeric membrane to help prevent the release of fuel vapor.  Due to high drainage time it has a strong cooling effect.
