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

Protein foam is applied as deck foam for ships, etc. It is made through hydrolysis of animal protein. Therefore, it induces little environmental pollution and can be applied to high temperature oil fire due to its high fire resistance. It is supplied mostly to the petroleum tank and petrochemical plants since its price is relatively lower than that of the aqueous film forming foam. Although it has longer time of fire extinction and low , it has outstanding effect on prevention of recurrence since it maintains its form stably after the fire extinction.

Common issues
Precautions at the time of handling - Stainless steel, polyethylene, vinyl chloride and FRP are recommended as the container materials appropriate
   for long-term preservation.
- Do not store by mixing with other range of foam fire extinguishing agent or products of other companies together.
