Megafoam Firefighting Foam

Megafoam

Megafoam is a fluorine-based firefighting foam with a broad range of application, from water-insoluble flammable liquid fires, represented by gasoline, to water-soluble flammable liquid fires, represented by methanol which had previously been considered difficult to extinguish. Megafoam's extinguishing performance has been highly evaluated with its numerous records of extinguishments and it holds the top share in the Japanese domestic market. Megafoam is especially recommended for public fire departments which are required extinguishing ability of unspecified types of fires.

The DIC Advantage

Megafoam has a record of use in firefighting facilities including general flammable material facilities, petrochemical complexes, indoor parking facilities, airports, and highway tunnels, as well as usage by many public fire departments.

Megafoam AGF-T and AGF-3T are polymer gel-forming alcohol-resistant firefighting foams developed by DIC Corporation. These two types are applicable for both water-soluble and water-insoluble flammable materials.

Cold resistant 3% type -10°C to +30°C Oil-based Rapidly extinguishes fire. The aqueous film-forming foam does a remarkable job of preventing reignition.
Megafoam
CV-1
Normal temperature 1% type -5°C to +30°C Oil-based Conforms to the standard of large-capacity foam monitor systems. 1% dilution. Rapid extinguishing, fire-resistance and prevention of reignition

Large-capacity Foam Monitor Type Applications

The majority of firefighting foams are 3% or 6% dilution types but Megafoam CV-1 is a 1% dilution type newly developed for large-capacity foam monitor systems. This foam primarily operates in large-capacity foam monitor systems installed for extinguishing large-scale fuel tank fires.

Alcohol-resistant foam (Complying with the performance standards specified in official Announcement of Notification No.559 by MIC*)
