PERIMETER SOLUTIONS

Perimeter Solutions Introduces SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™

Perimeter Solutions’ new 3×3 multipurpose fluorine-free foam concentrate, SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™, offers excellent firefighting performance with fresh, salt and brackish waters and improved handling. It is designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B and deep-seated Class A fires, and is UL-162, EN-1568:2018, LASTFIRE, and IMO MSC.1/Circ. 1312 certified

Perimeter Solutions’ SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™ AS-100 is a multipurpose 3×3 fluorine-free foam concentrate that is an alcohol-resistant, state-of-the-art pseudoplastic foam technology, with no siloxanes or intentionally added PFAS chemicals, designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon fuel and polar solvent fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires.

Biodegradable and non-persistent, SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™ AS-100 is a combination of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives that delivers excellent foaming, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burnback properties for attacking and securing both shallow and fuel in-depth fires, using fresh, sea or brackish water.

Some fluorine-free foams are viscous and often show viscosity increase when in contact with water. SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™ AS-100 creates very stable foams with similar viscosity to traditional AR-AFFF foams, significantly improving storage, handling and long-term stability.

SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™ is the latest Perimeter Solutions fluorine-free foam concentrate. SOLBERG® AVIGARD™ is a low-viscosity foam technology designed for extinguishing and securing flammable aviation fuel spills and fires. SOLBERG® RE-HEALING™ RF3 is designed to effectively extinguish Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires. On Class A fuels, RE-HEALING™ RF3 foam will improve extinguishment in deep-seated fires.
