Fluorine Free Foam is a foam that does not contain any intentionally added PFAS chemicals. Pure protein foams and many synthetic detergent type foams that have been used for many years are in fact fluorine free but in general the discussions today regarding Fluorine Free Foams relate to the high performance Class B foams that are now being produced and marketed as alternatives to the fluorinated foams such as FP, FFFP, AFFF and the alcohol resistant versions of these types of foam. Manufacturers and industry bodies are using different names and acronyms for Fluorine Free Foam including F3, SFFF, PFF and NFF but all are the alternatives to the fluorinated foams. Many fluorine free foams have been tested and approved by independent test authorities and have fire performance ratings similar to the fluorinated foams that they are being marketed as alternatives to, but fire test data does indicate the importance of the finished foam generated by the discharge device used.
At Fire Safety Search we care about Industrial fire protection solutions and their ability to protect life, property and business and therefore we proudly feature only those fluorine free foam agents that are backed by independent third party test approvals. We also recognise the numerous different applications and discharge devices that are linked to fluorine free foam concentrates and recommend consulting the manufacturers on your specific application.
