Product Description

Rockwood Jet-X foam concentrate is a synthetic-based formulation comprised of hydrocarbon surfactants, solvents and stabilizers for use with medium and high-expansion foam generators. This concentrate can be used to produce foam with an expansion ratios ranging from 50:1 to 1000:1 depending upon the type of generator and operating pressure. It can be proportioned with fresh, salt, or hard water.

This material is a tremendously flexible firefighting agent and can be used in fighting Class A, Class B and LNG (liquified natural gas) fires both indoors and outdoors. It is used only with air aspirating foam discharge devices except when used as a wetting agent on Class A fuels.

When used with high expansion generators, Jet-X foam concentrate is capable of totally flooding large rooms and enclosures, allowing it to effective extinguish horizontal and vertical (3-dimensional) fires. High expansion foam is also effective in reducing vapor concentrations downwind from unignited LNG and other hazardous low-boiling point gaseous products such as ammonia. This material can be use with foam-compatible dry chemical agents without regard to the order of application, however, rapid destruction of the foam mass can be caused by certain dry chemical agents such as those with a monoammonium phosphate base.
