Chemguard 6% AFFF Military Spec is a specially formulated synthetic aqueous film forming foam concentrate. A vapor suppressing aqueous film is formed by the foam solution draining from the expanded foam blanket. This foam is intended for use at a proportioning rate of 6% (6 parts concentrate to 94 parts water) on Class B hydrocarbon type fuels such as gasoline, kerosene, diesel, etc. AFFF type concentrates are not intended for use on fuels, which are polar solvent/water miscible such as alcohols, ketones, esters, etc.
Aspirating type discharge devices typically generate expansion ratios between 6-10 to 1 when mixed with water at the correct ratio. Non-aspirating type devices will typically generate expansion ratios of between 2-4 to 1. Expansion ratios are dictated by the type of discharge devices, flow rate and discharge pressure.
