Solberg announced today the company has achieved FM Approval on the company’s RE-HEALING™ RF3, 3% and ARCTIC™ 3×3% ATC™ firefighting foam concentrates.

RE-HEALING Foam concentrate is a high performance fluorine-free foam concentrate for use on Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires. The product is also used to prevent re-ignition of a liquid spill and control hazardous vapors. The new FM Approval includes use with bladder tanks, proportioners, foam chambers, foam makers and fire sprinklers.

“Advances in foam technology have completed another revolution of the fire science world. We have passed from protein to fluorine containing foam in the 20th century to high performance non-halide containing RE-HEALING foam for the 21st century,” explained Solberg’s General Manager Steve Hansen. “All of the ingredients in RE-HEALING foam concentrates have been individually tested under the HOCNF protocol and are safe for use from the North Sea to the South Pacific. Every question that has been asked of RE-HEALING foam has been answered without a sacrifice in fire performance.”

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.
