ANSULITE® AFC1B-FP29 1% Freeze-Protected AFFF (Aqueous Film-Forming Foam) Concentrate combines fluoro- and hydrocarbon-surfactant technologies to provide superior fire and vapor suppression for Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires. It is not suitable for use on fuels having appreciable water solubility (polar solvents), i.e., methyl and ethyl alcohol, acetone, and methyl ethyl ketone. AFFF general information is available.
The recommended operational temperature range for ANSULITE® AFC1B-FP29 1% AFFF Concentrate is -20 °F to 120 °F (-29 °C to 49 °C) per UL-162. However, the dilute solution will freeze at 32 °F (0 °C).
This product is intended for use as a 1% proportioned solution in fresh, salt or hard water (water hardness should not exceed 500 ppm expressed as calcium and magnesium). The correct proportioning or mixture ratio is 1 part concentrate to 99 parts of water.

The Safety Data Sheet is also available for download.
Technical Note: This product replaces Ansulite 1% Freeze Protected AFFF Concentrate, Ansul P/N 415301, which was discontinued in February of 2018. This replacement, ANSULITE® AFC1B-FP29 1% AFFF Concentrate, is an environmentally-mindful formulation that contains short-chain, C-6 fluorochemicals manufactured using a telomer-based process. The telomer process produces no PFOS, and these C-6 materials do not break down to yield PFOA. The fluorochemicals used in the concentrate meet the goals of the U.S. EPA 2010/15 PFOA Stewardship Program.
Statement on the use of perfluoroalkyl-containing firefighting foams
California has banned most firefighting aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF) that contain perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) effective January 1, 2022. We will no longer sell this product to users or purchasers in California. Ansul now offers a non-fluorinated foam product for Class B fires which is available as item # 50071. Ansul is continuously revamping its firefighting foam product line and as additional non-fluorinated alternatives become available we will offer them for sale.
Safety Emporium is unable to offer advice on the application, use, environmental fate, or health effects of these materials and offers them in good faith given the need within the firefighting community and given the manufacturer's implied warranty of merchantability. All potential purchasers should consult pertinent local, state, federal, and international regulations regarding PFAS-containing products and seek out emerging health and environmental data and guidance before choosing to purchase or use this product per the manufacturer's recommendations.

Given the heavy weight, a fixed shipping charge of $20 per container will be applied to your order at checkout which is valid only for ground shipment within the lower 48 US states. If you need rush delivery or delivery outside this area, you can contact us before ordering, otherwise, we will contact you with the actual freight costs before processing your order.
