Maritime

Fire extinguishing foam concentrates for use aboard maritime vessels, tugboats and firefighting vessels must comply with the requirements of the Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO). Compliance with these requirements is monitored by ship classification societies. Our foam concentrates for maritime use are type approved and certified according to MSC guidelines.

Fluorine-free foam concentrates

STHAMEX®
comprises our range of synthetic detergent foam concentrates, which are designed for generating low, medium and high-expansion foam. Interface-active ingredients, foam stabilisers and antifreeze characterise the composition of these powerful, reliable and fluorine-free foam concentrates.

STHAMEX®-K 1%
is a highly concentrated synthetic detergent foam concentrate with a 1% induction rate to water. The low induction rate effectively triples the service time when compared with 3% induction rate foam concentrate.

MOUSSOL®-APS LV
comprises a product range of low-viscosity, alcohol-resistant, aqueous film-forming AFFF foam concentrates without polymer additives, which have a viscosity equivalent to that of a Newtonian fluid. Thanks to the low viscosity, these products may be used without adverse effects at the lowest nominal operating temperature in all commercially available proportioning systems. Storage and the logistical effort at the scene of a fire are minimised by the highly concentrated options, which have proportioning rates as low as 0.5% and 1%. They are excellent supplements for existing foam concepts of municipal
fire services facing increased risk of large liquid fires in their response area.

MOUSSOL®-APS LV Premium
