Traditional firefighting foams must be transported to the location required in a vehicle or trailer. Bulky drums are awkward to transport and take up considerable space that could be better utilised by carrying other valuable equipment.
Solid EF is a surfactant, and like traditional foams is a substance capable of lowering the surface tension of liquids, facilitating the wetting of solid surfaces, and permitting the penetration of liquids into the capillaries.
Solid EF can be easily retrofitted to existing equipment and is simple to use. The lightweight aluminium dispenser and biodegradable water solvent cartridges are available in a 1kg block or 5 x 200g doughnut configuration.
