Aqueous film forming foam - Alcohol resistant concentrate

The acronyme AFFF ARC are often found in different forms such as AFFF-AR or AR-AFFF and are also known as "alcohol foam", "alcohol resistant foam" or "polar solvent foam".

AFFF ARC foam comes in many different versions such as ARC 3x3, ARC 3x6, ARC 1x1 etc, and fomtec uses special names such as ARC 3x3 S or ARC 1x1 NV. Other suppliers use different coding such as switching the use of 3x3 to 3-3 or 3/3 as well, asuming different acronyme such as ATC or AR instead of ARC as we do, some times these AR or ATC are used in conjunction with AFFF (I.e AFFF-ARC OR AFFF-AR OR AFFF ARC etc).

  • ARC 1x1 NV

    Fomtec ARC 1x1 NV is a high efficiency multipurpose film forming foam concentrate liquid. Characteristics for film forming foam are that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires. Adding special polymers ensures it is also highly effective against polar solvents in fresh or sea water. The 1x1 NV is a Newtonian liquid based on specially selected hydrocarbon / fluorocarbon surfactants and does not contain any polymer that makes general ARC type foam concentrates viscous. Its high fluidity makes the induction easier and accurate through both portable and fixed inline proportioners even at low temperatures. The advantage of Fomtec AFFF ARC 1x1 NV is the 1% induction ratio on all class B fires including polar solvents in fresh or sea water. The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, which is heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon liquid surface. When applied on polar solvents a polymeric membrane makes it possible for the foam blanket to extinguish effectively. This works also on foam destroying liquids such as MTBE.
  • ARC 1x3

    Fomtec ARC 1x3 is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (1x3). The main advantage of Fomtec ARC 1x3 is the 1% induction ratio on hydrocarbon liquids and 3% on polar solvents, in fresh or seawater. Characteristics for film forming foam are that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires. Adding special polymers ensures it is also highly effective against polar solvents. The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, which is heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon liquid surface. When applied on polar solvents a polymeric membrane makes it possible for the foam blanket to extinguish effectively. This works also on foam destroying liquids such as MTBE.
  • ARC 1x3 Ultra

    Fomtec ARC 1x3 Ultra is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (1x3). The main advantage of Fomtec ARC 1x3 Ultra is the 1% induction ratio on hydrocarbon liquids and 3% on polar solvents, in fresh or seawater. Characteristics for film forming foam are that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires.

  • ARC 3x3

    Fomtec ARC 3x3 is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (3x3). The main advantage of Fomtec ARC 3x3 is the 3% induction ratio on ALL class B fires, including polar solvents, in fresh or seawater. Characteristics for film forming foam are that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires. Adding special polymers ensures it is also highly effective against polar solvents. The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, which is heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon liquid surface. When applied on polar solvents a polymeric membrane makes it possible for the foam blanket to extinguish effectively. This works also on foam destroying liquids such as MTBE.
  • ARC 3x3 F

    Fomtec ARC 3x3 F is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (3x3).

  • ARC 3x3 NV

    Fomtec ARC 3x3 NV (Newtonian) is a high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam concentrate. The 3x3 NV is a newtonian liquid based specially selected hydrocarbon / fluorocarbon surfactants and does not contain any polymer that makes general ARC type foam concentrates viscous. Its high fluidity makes the induction easier and accurate through both portable and fixed inline proportioners even at low temperatures. The advantage of Fomtec ARC 3x3 NV is the 3% induction ratio on all class B fires including polar solvents in fresh or sea water. The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, although heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon fuel surface. The specially selected fluorocarbon surfactants ’seal’ the bubbles against attack from polar solvents and also provide a highly effective floating foam layer on top of the polar solvents.
  • ARC 3x3 S

    Fomtec ARC 3x3 S is high efficiency multi purpose film forming foam (3x3) that is PFOS free. Fomtec ARC 3x3 S shall be used at 3% induction ratio on both hydrocarbon and polar solvents fires using fresh, brackish or seawater. The film forming characteristics of Fomtec ARC 3x3 S means that it spreads rapidly across a fire. As a result, it is highly effective against hydrocarbon fires and with the addition of special polymers it is also highly effective against polar solvents. The low surface tension of the water foam concentrate solution enables the aqueous film, although heavier than the burning liquid, to float on top of the hydrocarbon liquid surface. When applied on polar solvents a polymeric membrane makes it possible for the foam blanket to extinguish effectively. This works on foam destroying liquids such as pure MTBE or Gasoline mixed with MTBE. Fomtec ARC 3x3 S should be used at 3% proportioned solution.
