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.

Intersec 2022 set to deliver industry benchmark for global safety and security industry

Intersec – the world-leading emergency services, security and safety event – will mark its return in 2022 with a ground-breaking, elevated new program uniting global and regional leaders as they explore solutions for the rapidly evolving challenges facing the industry. Never-before seen additions to the event will see Cybersecurity and technology take centre stage, along with some of the world’s best speakers in the UAE for the first time.

The 23rd edition of the flagship event, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will be staged under the theme of ‘Uniting the world’s leading industry specialists for the safety & security of future generations.’ His Highness said: “Intersec will be the most important platform of the year for businesses and governments to collaborate and continue on their paths of building a sustainable, safer and more secure world for our generation and those that follow. We look forward to hosting our communities once again, safely, physically and live in-person.”

The first industry gathering of 2022, staged at Dubai World Trade Center from 16-18 January, is the only event in the region that brings the entire ecosystem of emergency services, security and safety together at one time. Demonstrating Intersec’s strategic importance to the UAE, long-standing Official Supporters include Dubai Police, Dubai Civil Defense, Security Industry Regulatory Agency (SIRA) and Dubai Municipality while additional government partners for 2022 will be announced shortly.

Intersec’s innovation and technology focus will include its first ever Cyber Lab offering a vital platform for knowledge. Organizer Messe Frankfurt has worked closely with industry stakeholders, from both the private and public sector, to develop an event that reflects both their current and future needs that offers attendees bespoke platforms to gain expert insight on future capacity and capabilities.

Christine Davidson, Intersec’s Group Exhibition Director, said: “There has never been such an intense focus as there is today on the security and safety industry which has been at the frontline of protecting the world’s communities over the last 18 months during this time of significant global disruption.

“Having invested heavily to deliver an outstanding program that will address the sector’s most vital issues and opportunities, Intersec 2022 brings the industry together at this crucial juncture to share knowledge from recent experiences and look to the future with the event’s most powerful series of conferences including multiple platforms for strategic G2G, G2B and B2B discussions and deep dive sessions into key sector verticals.”

Ms Davidson added: “The phenomenal development in the framework of the show will see the best minds in the industry come to the table with the most content-rich program ever seen at Intersec. We have the most comprehensive line-up of international and regional speakers, dynamic networking opportunities, coupled with world-class exhibitors to bring the most relevant value to Intersec’s attendees. We have built a world-class team to deliver this event and over the coming weeks we will be sharing further details of our elite speakers and conference program that will demonstrate the extraordinary value of the event to our attendees.”

Seen as a nexus for the industry, Intersec will bring together thousands of its most powerful stakeholders for bilateral government and business discussions on mitigating and addressing vulnerabilities of the future. They will be joined by leading regional and international brands exhibiting the most innovative systems and solutions in a dynamic environment that will enable face-to-face and virtual exchange through interactive roundtables, workshops and ‘closed-door’ confidential conversations.
