How Fire Fighting Foam Works
PHOS-CHEK WD881 is the most concentrated Class A foam product on the market today. The product doesn’t contain fluorinated surfactants like PFOS/PFOA, which are used in Class B foam concentrates on forming a film on flammable liquid fires. Understanding which types of fires should be treated with Class A foam is essential. Only Class A fires can be treated with Class A foam. Fires that consist of wood, paper, and fabric are considered Class A.
