  • Niagara –AR-FFFP

    Niagra –AR-FFFP can be used on polar solvents as well as hydrocarbons. It extinguishes fire through a ‘film-forming’ action. Niagara is the worlds first UL listed high fluidity multi-purpose foam and is gentle on the environment. It is available as a 3-3, 3% on hydrocarbons and polar solvents.

    Niagara is ideal for use in high risk situations where polar solvents (such as alcohols, ketones and ethers) and / or hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel and aviation kerosene) are stored, processed or transported. Typical applications include municipal fire departments, hydrocarbon and solvent bulk storage tank protection, process areas, warehousing, road / rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platform protection.

  • Alcoseal – AR-FFFP

    Alcoseal – AR-FFFP provides maximum protection against both hydrocarbons and polar solvents. The film forming action ensures outstanding flame knockdown performance. It has less fluidity than Niagara and available as a 3-3 and 3-6.

    Alcoseal is the ideal fire fighting foam to use in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as alcohols, ketones and ethers) and / or hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel and aviation kerosene) are stored, processed or transported. It is used extensively by industrial and municipal fire departments. Typical applications include hydrocarbon storage tanks process areas, warehousing, road / rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platforms.

  • Petroseal 3 and 6 - FFFP

    Petroseal is a superior quality Film Forming FluoroProtein (FFFP) fire fighting foam concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires.

    Petroseal is the ideal fire fighting foam to use in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel and aviation kerosene) are stored, processed or transported. It is used extensively on Rapid Intervention Vehicles at major international airports and military bases where fast extinguishment and post-fire security with limited quantities of foam are essential. Other typical applications include hydrocarbon storage tanks process areas, warehousing, road / rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platforms.

  • Tankmaster (FP70+)

    Tankmaster™ is a superior quality FluoroProtein (FP) fire fighting foam concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. In particular it is a powerful and cost-effective agent for the protection of a wide range of hydrocarbons including crude oil, regular leaded gasoline, unleaded gasoline containing up to 20% Methyl Tertiary Butyl Ether (MTBE), and pure MTBE.

    Tankmaster™ is the ideal fire fighting foam to use in situations where hydrocarbon fuels such as crude oil, gasoline, and fuel oils are stored, processed, or transported. Formerly known as FP70 Plus, it is used extensively by major oil and petrochemical companies for hydrocarbon, MTBE and blended unleaded gasoline storage tank fire protection around the world. Other typical applications include process areas, road/rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and airports.

  • Tridol ATF 1-3, 3-3, 3-6 - AR- AFFF

    Tridol ATF is a cost-effective Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AR-AFFF) for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fires.

    Tridol ATF is used in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation kerosene) and/or polar solvents (such as alcohols, ketones, esters, and ethers) are stored, processed, or transported. Typical applications include hydrocarbon storage tanks, process areas, warehouses, road/rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platforms.

  • Tridol S 1, 3 and 6 – AFFF

    Tridol S is a superior quality synthetic Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires.

    Tridol S is used in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, and aviation kerosene) are stored, processed, or transported. It is used extensively on Rapid Intervention Vehicles (RIV) at major international airports and military bases where fast extinguishment with limited quantities of foam is essential for saving life. Other applications include hydrocarbon storage tanks, process areas, warehouses, road / rail loading racks, power stations, marine terminals and offshore platforms.

    Tridol S provides a vapour suppressing foam blanket on unignited hydrocarbon spills. Tridol S can also be used as a wetting agent in combating fires in Class A materials such as wood, paper, and tyres.

  • Expandol

    Expandol is a superior quality high expansion fire fighting foam concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. Expandol is extremely economical due to its expansion properties.

    Expandol is the ideal foam to use at medium expansion at minor incidents such as small hydrocarbon liquid spill fires where close approach to the fire allows handheld apparatus to be used. It can also be used in conjunction with fixed installations to provide bund protection, where it can achieve extinction of fires or suppression of toxic vapour release after chemical spillage.

    At medium and high expansion, Expandol is used for the total flooding of fire areas involving Class A and Class B fires: medium expansion for small areas such as cellars and basements of buildings, and high expansion for large areas such as ships' holds, machinery spaces, and LNG storage tank bunds. Medium and high expansion foams are most effective when dealing with outbreaks of fire in inaccessible locations, where direct application of conventional agents such as water is difficult or impossible due to smoke or restricted access.

  • Forexpan S

    Angus Forexpan S is a synthetic fire fighting foam concentrate designed for Class A applications such as forestry and bushfire control, structural fires, tyre and paper fires. The balanced chemical system in Forexpan S reduces the surface tension of water to increase the penetrating power into burning Class A materials.

    Highly versatile, it can be used with a wide range of equipment for different methods of application:

    • Ground attack
    • Structural attack
    • Aerial Attack
    • CAF system

  • Trainol – Synthetic Based Training Foam

    Trainol is a blend of highly active synthetic foaming agents specifically formulated to give the lowest environmental impacts combined with drainage and flow characteristics similar to film forming foam.

    It is suitable for use at all training exercises when used through conventional foam induction and delivery equipment. It is not suitable for use at real life fire fighting emergencies. It is suitable for use at low and medium expansion.

  • Foam Testing

    AS1940-1993 Clause 9.8.15 asks that samples of foam concentrate shall be checked at a frequency of not less than annually against the manufacturers specifications, in accordance with NFPA11 Chapter 8.

    Foam testing is crucial in ensuring that stocks of foam concentrate held in long-term storage are in good condition when they are needed to put out a fire. It is impossible to tell if foam concentrate is of operational quality by smelling it, looking at it in its drum, or touching the finished foam blanket. Kidde has a fully equipped laboratory where foam concentrate sample testing is conducted on an almost daily basis for clients around Australia. With knowledge and experience of evaluating foam samples gained over many years, Chubb are uniquely placed to interpret the results and provide reliable recommendations about the suitability of foam for use in an emergency. Analytical chemistry laboratories that do not specialise in fire fighting foam testing are unable to offer such specialist expertise.

    Test results include physical properties, foam properties, fuel tolerance, burnback resistance, film formation (where applicable) and alcohol resistance (where applicable).

    The results are reported quickly with a comprehensive test report. All test results are fully confidential and completely unbiased, copies of which are kept on file at Chubb and released to your nominated personnel only.

    Upon notification, sample containers can be sent to your site with instructions on sampling procedures. Test results are usually available in 1-2 weeks, however, a 24 hour result can be given if requested.
