FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate from SOLBERG is a synthetic firefighting foam concentrate specially designed to be used for wildland, structural and other Class A fuel fires. The foam concentrate is biodegradable and non-toxic, so it is environmentally sustainable.
FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate has the ability to reduce the surface tension of water, which substantially increases water’s overall wetting capability. This creates a faster penetration and greater fire control when attacking combustible Class A fuels. FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate is proportioned at a rate of 0.1% – 1.0% in fresh, salt or brackish water.
FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate (including pre-mixed solution) is designed and applied to Class A fires including wood, paper, coal rubber, and structure fires. FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate is compatible with conventional firefighting equipment such as non-air aspirating and air aspirating foam nozzles, Compressed Air Foam Systems (CAFS), rotary and fixed wing aircraft, low, medium and high expansion devices, balanced pressure pump systems, bladder tank systems and eductors (with metering orifice).
Recommended application rates – FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate on wildland fires:
• Mop-up: 0.25%
• Fire Brake: 0.75%
• Initial Suppression: 0.5%
• Protection: 1.0%
The minimum admixture rate on other Class A fuel types is 0.1%. FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate meets NFPA 298 and is listed on USDA Forest Service (USFS) QPL.
