Chemguard XTRA High Expansion Foam Concentrate is a synthetic based foaming agent suitable for use with either low, medium or high expansion foam generating equipment. It is generally proportioned at a 2% concentration (2 parts XTRA to 98 parts of water). When used through a high expansion or medium expansion generating discharge device the following extinguishing mechanism takes place:
- The large volume of foam engulfs the area being protected and prevents air from reaching the fire.
- As the foam is generated with water, and comes in contact with the fire, a large amount of steam is generated which helps reduce the oxygen content in the atmosphere.
- The water content in the foam produces a valuable cooling effect on the fire. This is particularly so with medium expansion generated foam, which has higher water content.
