The Solberg Company, an innovator of firefighting foam concentrates and systems hardware, announced the company has achieved CAN/ULC S560; Standard for Category 3 Foam Liquid Concentrates Certification on the company’s ARCTIC™ 3% and ARCTIC 6% MIL-SPEC AFFF foam concentrates.
ARCTIC™ foam concentrates from SOLBERG are PFOS-free synthetic firefighting foam concentrates used to effectively extinguish Class B fuel fires. ARCTIC foam concentrates provide rapid extinguishment and excellent burn back resistance and can be used in fresh, salt or brackish water. “After months of development work and hundreds of fire tests we have come up with product formulations that are superior in every aspect of performance. Further, they have the added value of being multi-agency certified including MIL-SPEC and ULC Category 3, thus serving the aviation industry in both Canada and the United States with a single formulation for each type concentrate,” said Mark Siem, Research Chemist.
ARCTIC 3% and 6% MIL-SPEC AFFF is also certified for use in numerous commercial land and offshore applications where the use of MIL-SPEC certified foam concentrate is required. These include NFPA 403: Standard for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Services at Airports; NFPA 409: Standard on Aircraft Hangars; NFPA 412: Standard for Evaluating Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Foam Fire equipment; NFPA 414: Standard for Aircraft Rescue and Fire-Fighting Vehicles and NFPA 418: Standard for Heliports.
