Fomtec Alpha R is a ready-to-use alcohol resistant foam solution. Reliable fire performance is obtained on all kinds of fuels. On polar liquid fires, Fomtec Alpha R forms a polymeric layer which protects the foam against destruction. On non-polar fuels an aqueous film is formed (AFFF-effect). Fomtec Alpha R has been designed to have a much longer shelf life than normal AFFF premix solutions. It is also an alcohol resistant foam solution that is stable for storage, unlike normal premixes made from ARC foams. It is a freeze protected foam solution, enabling foam systems to operate in areas with temperatures down to –10 °C.
