Class-A foam concentrates

is a new, refined, highly concentrated foam agent based on foam-forming active ingredients, which are specially designed for extinguishing solid fuel fires (fire class A), as well as for use with compressed air foam system (CAFS). Upwards from 0.1% proportioning rate, STHAMEX® -class A is suitable for use as a wetting agent and, upwards from 0.3%, for CAFS applications. For extinguishing liquid fires (fire class B), the induction rate is 0.5%.

All class-A foam concentrates are fluorine-free, physiologically safe when used as intended, and readily 100% biodegradable.

is a highly concentrated foam agent based on fully biodegradable surfactant compounds, developed especially for use on class A fires. STHAMEX® -class A classic is designed in particular for extinguishing ember forming solid material fires in combination with CAFS. The proportioning rate for extinguishing liquid fires (fire class B) is 1%.
