Introduction

Fluorinated surfactant is the most important component in aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF). AFFF is a high efficient extinguishing agent to extinguish the fire of burning oil by water. We have the core technology of synthesis of fluorinated surfactant for AFFF. Low pollution is shown because of the very low using concentration of fluorinated surfactant.

Parameters

Light yellow liquid

0.1wt% solution: surface tension 14.7mN/m

rapid spread rate (< 0.5s) on cyclohexane, kerosene, and 90#gasoline

Stable to long-term stock

Stable foam (>52 hours)

Hard water resisting

Stable to heat and freeze

Remark

Qualified by “CNCF China National Center for Quality Supervision and Test of Fixed Fire-fighting Systems and Fire-resisting Building Components”(GB 174271998), IA Grade

Instruction

Use in production of AFFF concentrated liquid (type 6% and type 3%, which means AFFF concentrated liquid: water = 6:94 and 3:97 when extinguish fire)
