A pioneer in fluorine-free foams   

Our R&D team, composed of PhD and scientists, is proactive in the development of new foam formulations that meet fire safety professional needs. 

In 2002, BIOEX launched the 1st fluorine-free foam (FFF) in the market: ECOPOL. ECOPOL foam concentrate is a non-fluorinated alternative with high extinguishing performance while respecting the environment. ECOPOL is a multipurpose foam (Alcohol-Resistant), efficient on class A and class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires. ECOPOL achieved GreenScreen certification, the first ecolabel which analyzes and attests PFAS-free foams using safer chemicals.  

Committed to bring green solutions for the environment and for the people, BIOEX intensively developed its range of 100% fluorine-free foams. High quality fluorine-free foams are available, covering wildland to industrial fire risks, aircrafts, as well as large petrochemical fires.   

Customer service  

In case of emergency and urgent need of firefighting foam, BIOEX-24 emergency service is available 24/7 for express delivery. 

To control foam concentrate quality and their physical-chemical properties, BIOEX provides foam sample analysis according to standard protocol such as EN1568, ICAO, UL, IMO… 

The company can perform small-scale and large-scale burn tests to ensure foam performances on specific fuel. 

BIOEX also supports companies in their transition from AFFF to Fluorine-Free Foam.
