SILV-EX® Plus is a low, medium, and high expansion, Class A foam concentrate designed specifically for use on Class A fuel fires including wood, paper, coal and rubber. This formulation provides extremely good cold weather performance. The original forest fire control concentrate, SILV-EX has been proven effective on many deep seated Class A fires such as tire fires, paper fires, coal fires, structure fires, and wild fires. Although designed for Class A fires, SILV-EX Plus foam can be effective on some Class B flammable liquid fires when applied from medium and high expansion devices. SILV-EX Plus foam clings to vertical surfaces for structure protection. The wetting and penetrating characteristics of the SILV-EX Plus solution reduce the combustibility of Class A fuels and makes water 5 times more effective. The brilliant white foam reflects heat and creates a dense foam blanket with excellent insulating properties.
SILV-EX Plus solution can be used with aspirating and non-aspirating discharge devices, compressed air foam systems (CAFS) or dropped from fixed or rotary wing aircraft. The concentrate can be proportioned from 0.1% to 1.0% in fresh, brackish or sea water. When used as a pre-mixed solution, only fresh or potable water should be used if the premix is to be stored over long time periods. Due to its extremely low proportioning rate, SILV-EX foam concentrate offers outstanding economy in: concentrate storage space, cost (compared to conventional 3% and 6% foaming agents) and water hauling requirement.
The solution does not destroy or retard new forest growth, will not harm fish or wildlife, is biodegradable in soils, aquatic ecosystems, and sewage treatment facilities and has no EPA reportable contents.
