Foam is FM Approved

THE SOLBERG COMPANY has achieved FM approval on the company’s Re-Healing RF3, 3% and Arctic 3×3% ATC foam concentrates.

Re-Healing foam concentrate is a high performance fluorine-free foam concentrate for use on Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires. It is also used to prevent re-ignition of a liquid spill and control hazardous vapours. The new FM approval includes bladder tanks, proportioners, foam chambers, foam makers and fire sprinklers. The FM approval with multiple standard automatic sprinklers includes Reliable F-1 upright and pendent style (5.6 and 8.0 K-Factors), Reliable Model G upright and pendent style (5.6 and 8.0 K-Factors), and the Reliable upright G XLO (11.2 K-Factor).

Re-Healing RF3, 3% foam concentrate is both UL Listed and FM approved for use in automatic sprinkler systems at exactly the same application rates and sprinkler operating pressures as Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrates. Equal system performance has been achieved with a completely fluorine-free concentrate that also happens to be high performance firefighting foam.

In addition to the FM Approval on Re-Healing RF3, Solberg also obtained FM approval on Arctic 3×3%ATC foam concentrate, for use with foam chambers, foam makers, and the same sprinklers as identified for Re-Healing RF3. Arctic foam concentrates are 2015 compliant to the U.S. EPA Stewardship Program on C6 fluorine chemistry.
