SILV-EX PLUS is a low, medium, and high expansion, Class A foam concentrate formulated from specialty hydrocarbon surfactants, stabilizers, corrosion inhibitors and solvents. This formulation provides superior cold weather performance. The latest development in the original forest fire control concentrate, SILV-EX PLUS has been proven effective on many deep-seated Class A fires such as tire fires, paper fires, coal fires, structure fires, and wild fires.
- Reduction of the surface tension of water, which provides the SILV-EX PLUS solution with superior wetting and penetrating characteristics. This renders Class A fuels less combustible and allows the solution to penetrate past the char to control deep seated fires.
- Extended drain time provides longer surface wetting, reducing the risk of ignition/reignition.
- SILV-EX PLUS agent creates a foam blanket which provides an insulating barrier between the fuel and air.
- SILV-EX PLUS foam suppresses combustible vapors while cooling the fuel.
