Class ATC (AR)/AFFF Firefighting Foam

1% ATC / 3% AFFF

ATC FoamU.S. Foam l%-3% AR/AFFF (ATC/AFFF) is a versatile fire fighting foam for protection of a wide range of Class B flammable liquid hazards. U.S. Foam 1%-3% AR/AFFF (ATC/AFFF) is an all synthetic film forming foam designed for protection of water-soluble polar solvents as well as water insoluble hydrocarbon flammable liquids. When used with fresh water and foam generating equipment U.S. Foams 1%-3% AR-AFFF is transformed into a vapor blanketing foam to provide extinguishing and securing abilities.

Recommended Applications

U.S. Foam 1%-3% AR-AFFF is recommended for use in a wide variety of fire fighting foam application devices. Examples are: foam chambers, forcing foam makers, and aspirating foam nozzles. In addition. practical applications have been demonstrated in a number of discharge devices such as non-aspirating sprinklers, water spray nozzles and water/fog nozzles.

Environmental:

U.S. Foam concentrates undergo a program of ongoing testing to assess the impact of U.S. Foam products on the natural environment. U.S. Foam products are low in toxicity to tested aquatic organisms. (Toxicity information is available from Product Environmental Data sheets, Material Safety Data sheets and Toxicity Summary sheets for individual products. ) Aquatic LIFE is not adversely affected when U.S. Foam products are used and disposed of properly. U.S. Foam products can be successfully treated in biological waste water treatment systems. (Request Product E'nvironmental Data sheets and Disposal Recommendations from your U.S. Foam representative.)


3%-6% ATC/DECON

ATC FoamThis is a versatile fire fighting foam for protection of a wide range of Class B flammable liquid hazards and a Decontamination Solution product for Biological/Chemical remediation. 3%-6% ATC is an all synthetic film forming foam designed for protection of water-soluble polar solvents as well as water insoluble hydrocarbon flammable liquids. When used with fresh water and foam generating equipment, 3%-6% ATC is transformed into vapor-blanketing foam to provide extinguishing and securing capabilities. When batch mixed at a 50/50 ratio, this product produces a Decontamination Solution proven to neutralize all Chemical and Biological weapons known to man.

Recommended Applications

U.S. Foam’s 3%-6% ATC is recommended for use in a wide variety of fire fighting foam application devices. Examples are: foam chambers, forcing foam makers, and aspirating foam nozzles. In addition, practical applications have been demonstrated in a number of discharge devices, such as non-aspirating sprinklers, water spray nozzles, and water/fog nozzles. U.S. Foam’s Decon Solution was designed to combat all domestic chemical and biological warfare weapons (CBW) and produce a 7-log kill on the hazard. U.S. Foam’s decon formula can be deployed as a foam, liquid spray, or fog.

Physical Properties:

  • Nominal use concentration: 3% on hydrocarbons, 6% on polar solvents
  • Specific Gravity: @77F (25C) 1.17
  • Density : 8.8 lbs./gal.
  • Viscosity : @77F (25C) / 40F (4.4C)
  • Minimum use temperature: 35F (1.7C)
  • Storage temperature: 35 - 120F (1.7 - 49C)
  • Freeze point: 28F (-4C)
  • Appearance:Amber thixotropic liquid

Environmental:

U.S. Foam concentrates undergo a program of ongoing testing to assess the impact of U.S. Foam products on the natural environment. U.S. Foam products are low in toxicity to tested aquatic organisms. (Toxicity information is available from Product Environmental Data sheets, Material Safety Data sheets and Toxicity Summary sheets for individual products.) Aquatic life is not adversely affected when U.S. Foam products are used and disposed of properly. U.S. Foam products can be successfully treated in biological waste water treatment systems.

Storage:

ATC/Decon may be stored in its shipping container without change in its original physical or chemical characteristics. It does not show significant sedimentation or precipitation in storage or after temperature cycling. Freezing and thawing have no effect on performance and the concentrate proportions satisfactorily in ordinary equipment at temperatures above 32F. Freeze-thaw cycling may cause slight stratification which may be overcome with moderate agitation. Annual inspection as prescribed in NFPA11 is recommended.
