Enviro eMax

Fomtec Enviro eMax is a new generation of high performance fluorine free alcohol resistant multipurpose foam concentrate. It is totally free from fluoro surfactants and polymers and consists of a novel blend hydrocarbon surfactants, blended with various solvents, and stabilizers. Fomtec Enviro eMax have been designed to be used as low, medium and high expansion.

Features

  • Fluorine Free Foam
  • High Performance Multipurpose Alcohol Resistant foam
  • Approved EN 1568 as Low and High Expansion Foam
  • Tested by CNPP, T12 high expansion test standard
  • Suitable for Hydrocarbon & Polar fuels

Application

Fomtec Enviro eMax is intended for use on class B hydrocarbon fuels such as oil, diesel, gasoline and aviation fuels, as well as polar fuels like acetone, isopropyl alcohol etc.  Fomtec Enviro eMax can be used with all kinds on low, medium and high expansion devices. 

Fomtec Enviro eMax is also effective against class A fires such as wood, paper, textiles etc at 0.5-1% proportioning.

Typical applications are high expansion foam systems in warehouses, process areas, aircraft hangars or other applications where three-dimensional fire can occur.

Suitable for mobile firefighting by use of low expansion aspirating foam discharge devices such as foam branchpipes and monitors. Or in systems designed for use with the product based on recommended minimum applications rates, application duration and discharge devices.

Fire Performance & Foaming

The fire performance of this product has been measured and documented according to "International Approvals" stated in this document. The foaming properties are depending on equipment used and other variables such as water and ambient temperatures. Average low expansion 8:1, average ¼ drainage time 9:30 minutes using UNI 86 test nozzle. 

Used in Fomtec high expansion generators the below average values can be expected:

Generator Expansion @ 4 bar
Fomtec Bele L -
Fomtec Bele S 400 550:1
Fomtec Bele S 800 500:1

Equipment

Fomtec Enviro eMax can easily be proportioned at the correct dilution using conventional proportioning equipment. The equipment should be designed to the foam type. Fomtec Enviro eMax can be used with low, medium and high expansion foam generators.

Compatibility

Fomtec Enviro eMax is compatible potable water. It is compatible with foam compatible dry chemical powders as well as other expanded foam types. For mixability with other foam concentrates, please contact Fomtec.

Environmental

Fomtec Enviro eMax is formulated using raw materials specially selected for their fire performance and their environmental profile. The product is totally free from fluorinated surfactants and polymers and other organohalogens, and therefore it does not contain any PFOS or PFOA. The handling of spills of concentrate or foam solutions should however be undertaken according to local regulations. Normally sewage systems can dispose foam solution based on this type of foam concentrate, but local sewage operators should be consulted.

Full details will be found in the Material Safety Datasheet (MSDS).

Storage / Shelf life

Stored in original unbroken packaging the product will have a long shelf life. Shelf life in excess of 10 years will be found in temperate climates. As with all foams, shelf life will be dependent on storage temperatures and conditions.

For storage recommendations and material compatibility please refer to our technical dossier addressing the topic.

Inspection/Testing/Maintenance

The foam concentrate should be tested annually. The testing should be made by a suitable laboratory for analysis of foam concentrates and should measure: pH, specific gravity, expansion, drainage time. Storage containers should be inspected and reevaluated for the suitability of the storage location in regard to temperature fluctuations (temperature should be as stable as possible). Exposure to direct sunlight should be avoided.
