Perimeter Solutions introduces SOLBERG VERSAGARD line of fluorine-free, alcohol-resistant firefighting foam concentrates for Class B purposes

Perimeter Solutions announced the introduction of a new line of fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrates for general function use. Called SOLBERG VERSAGARD, the fluorine-free line debuts with SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam focus is an alcohol resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam know-how designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. Triple and non-persistent concentrate is made with no siloxanes and is a mix of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers wonderful foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burn-back properties utilizing recent, sea or brackish water. Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and infrequently show viscosity increase when in contact with water. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 creates very stable foams whereas maintaining an identical viscosity to conventional AR-AFFF foams. This significantly improves storage, handling and long-term stability. SOLBERG VERSAGARD enters the market with a growing number of worldwide certifications, including EN-1568-1/2/3/4:2018, LASTFIRE, ICAO B and International Maritime Organization.

This can have a dramatic impact on dealing with and use charges in firefighting operations.’ he said.
A broad range of use functions
SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is designed to generate steady foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. This novel technology permits SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform similarly to fluorinated products. It may be used with low-expansion foam tools (nozzles and monitors) and medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units to fight fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is absolutely appropriate and simply proportioned with standard firefighting equipment, together with in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, hearth truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced stress techniques and extra.
In addition to its glorious foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 has glorious wetting capability, making it additionally an effective tool for the extinguishment of Class A fuel fires.
Multiple certifications show effectiveness
Perimeter Solutions has achieved a broad vary of certifications for SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 required for numerous regions and functions. The firefighting foam focus:
Has achieved the maximum ranking and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 3 & four on all fuels with freshwater and seawater – IA/IA – IA/IA
Passes and is certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – for use with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge units
Has achieved International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
Has been LASTFIRE batch-certified as GOOD/GOOD/GOOD with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
Has achieved ICAO Level B
The firm is pursuing further certifications for the product. SOLBERG VERSAGARD AS-100 is available immediately on a global foundation. Perimeter Solutions will be discussing the new foam expertise at the AOG Energy Conference in Perth, Australia, 11–12 March 2021, Stand D23.
