Fluorine-free into the future

Responsible handling of the environment and its scarce resources places high demands on modern fire protection. Since the early 1980s it has been our focus to develop environmentally compatible, high-performance fire extinguishing agents based on renewable raw materials. This site serves to provide you with an overview of our fluorine-free products.
vaPUREx® is a new product line of environmentally compatible high-performance fire extinguishing foam concentrates. For a variety of applications vaPUREx® can replace AFFF or AFFF-AR without polluting the environment with fluorosurfactants. The special formulation allows direct application to non-polar liquid fires (e.g. petroleum products). Not only is vaPUREx® suitable for direct foam application it also forms a stable foam blanket providing for excellent vapour suppression and burn-back safety. The alcohol resistant vaPUREx® products were comprehensively type tested on polar fuels and achieved the highest possible fire performance ratings. Apart from alcohol resistant product types we also offer application-optimised variants.

vaPUREx® FXS PLY
MOUSSOL®-FF – alcohol resistant universal fire extinguishing foam concentrate
is an alcohol resistant, fluorine-free, 100% biodegradable fire extinguishing foam concentrate. It is based on predominantly renewable surface- and interface-active materials, polymer film formers as well as foam stabelisers and anti-freeze agents. Since MOUSSOL®-FF is used universally as low- medium- and high-expansion foam it is suitable for a wide range of applications.

STHAMEX®-class A Classic 1% F-15
UltraWet® – fluorine-free high-performance wetting agent
is a non-foaming wetting agent for class A fires. Used as additive to firewater UltraWet® improves the wetting characteristics of water considerably stronger than conventional agents at comparable concentrations. UltraWet® water penetrates solid fuels - normally difficult to wet - quickly and deeply with lasting effect. The proportioning rate of just 0.1 to 0.3% reduces the environmental impact and enables fast and complete biodegradation of the solution. UltraWet® premix can be used in fire engine tanks and fire extinguishing devices.
