NKFS-FOAM has the following characteristics

  • High Expansion Foam with 1% concentration application technology capability that has been mass produced in Korea for the first time for the ship building market
  • Hold performances for supplying to ship building companies including Samsung Heavy Industries, Hyundai Heavy Industries, Daewoo Ship Building, Hanjin Heavy Industries and Seongdong Ship Building, etc. in Korea for more than 5 years
  • Acquisition of Marine Equipment Directive (MED) B+D certification with the IMO Rules that are stricter than the specifications for those used on land, and completed quality verification through in-house test
  • Registered with the Korean Register (KR) as an institution for specialized examination of foam fire extinguishing agent for maritime application, and currently executing examination of the quality of foam fire extinguishing agent for maritime application

Aqueous film forming foam fire extinguishing agent has outstanding preparation for re-ignition of fire after the fire extinction through the fortification of the function for forming aqueous film. Foam fire extinction based on fluoride range of surfactant quickly coats the surface of oil to block in influx of oxygen and, at the same time, forms aqueous film that suppresses the vapor of combustion liquid, thereby executing suffocation fire extinction action. It has outstanding fire extinction performances on majority of oil fire (B rating fire) and can also be applied to A rating fire due to the double action of the foam and aqueous film.
