FIRE FIGHTING FOAM
During rescue emergencies, work is often done in high-risk environments and hands may easily be exposed to risk of crush and pinch impacts. Effective protection of knuckles, fingers and thumbs should be achieved while maintaining maximum durability, dexterity and comfort. When gloves offer superior comfort and protection they are worn rather than removed when executing critical operations, resulting in reduced risk of injuries. Ansell‘s Ringers Impact Protection System protects workers against the risk of impact while providing superior comfort and dexterity.
PHOS-CHEK® WD881 Class A Foam concentrate is specially formulated to make water more effective for firefighting.
The unique combination of surfactants in PHOS-CHEK WD881 significantly reduces water’s surface tension and, when mixed with air, creates a superior foam blanket that surrounds fuels with a thick layer of water. This creates a barrier between the fuel and the fire, knocking down the fire faster than water alone, and allowing fire fighters to see the areas of application. Making the water more effective reduces the amount of water needed to extinguish the fire, reduces water damage and increases fire fighter safety through quicker knockdown and reduced mop-up/overhaul requirements.
PHOS-CHEK WD881 is highly effective for fighting Class A fires when mixed with water at use rates of 0.1% to 1.0%.
PHOS-CHEK WD881 is the most concentrated Class A foam product available today. Other products contain significantly more water in the concentrate. This extra water means higher use rates will be required to achieve expected results.
