Research & Development at Dafo Fomtec
The usage of foam as a fire fighting media has been known for more than 100 years but new types are still needed. Dafo Fomtec take new regulations, new demands, new equipment and new fuels into consideration. Continuous development work has provided us with a strong product portfolio with a wide selection of products with different performance and certifications. Beside our basic product portfolio, we also have tailor-made adaptations and modifications to suit special requirements.
Environmental issues are becoming more and more important. At Dafo Fomtec AB we look at our con-stituent substances to optimize the environmental profile of our products. Raw materials from renew-able resources are maximized. It is important to keep all ingredients to as low a limit as possible in order to minimize environmental impact and still have good foam with strong fire fighting properties. Hence, we promote environmentally friendly training foams purely developed from compounds originating from natural sources and recommend using the powerful fire fighting foams only when needed.
Selecting fire fighting foam is to seek optimal per-formance for the application. This can be related to many different aspects of foam. In one case, the most important factor is to have foam with freeze-protected to very low temperatures. In other cases the extinction and burn-back resistance is the prime function. Often, a combination of different features is requested. For that reason Dafo Fomtec constantly develop its product portfolio to meet the demands of our customers.
