Responder® Class "A" Foam Concentrate

National Foam

Environmentally responsible foam concentrate. Premix is stable for more than 30 days (using potable water). Compatible with class A/B systems and compressed air foam systems. Can be used with fresh, brackish and sea water, plus exhibits good formability, even in cold water. Contains NO alcohols.

Responder foam concentrate works in two ways. First, Responder improves the penetrating capability of water. It reduces the surface tension of plain water which allows it to penetrate surfaces where water might normally run off, to reach deep-seated fires. This helps reduce the amount of water required to extinguish the fire and also provides quicker knockdown. Secondly, Responder increases the heat absorbing capabilities of water. Foaming ingredients give water the ability to adhere to vertical surfaces which allows the water longer contact with the fuel. The longer the water is in contact with the fuel, the more heat it is able to absorb. A coating of Class A foam may also be used for exposure protection to prevent fuels from igniting by raising their moisture content and providing a tough protective barrier to an oncoming flame front.
