Angus Fire has introduced the Integrity range of pure C6 technology fire fighting foams which are suitable for most applications.
Synthetic Aqueous Film-Forming Foam (AFFF) concentrates are best for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. Angus Fire’s Tridol C6 is a superior quality AFFF concentrate with a unique combination of hydrocarbon and fluorochemical surface active agents. It produces a vapour-sealing aqueous film that spreads rapidly over the fuel surface to provide rapid control and extinguishment.
Alcohol Resistant Aqueous Film Forming foams, AR-AFFF, are especially effective for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon and polar solvent fires. High risk facilities such as refineries, pharmaceutical plants, process areas often require AR- AFFF foams.
Angus Fire’s Tridol C6 ATF is a range of AR-AFFF foams, which are cost-effective foam concentrates containing a unique combination of hydrocarbon and flurorocarbon surface active agents. They produce a vapour-sealing aqueous film that spreads rapidly over hydrocarbon surfaces to provide rapid control and extinguishment. On polar solvents an insoluble polymer membrane is formed which protects the foam blanket from the solvent.
Tridol C6 Ultra 1-3
Tridol C6 Ultra 1-3 is used in high risk situations where hydrocarbons and/or polar solvents are stored, processed, or transported. Typical applications include:
Major features include:
Tridol C6 ATF 3-3 and 3-6
Tridol C6 ATF 3-3 and 3-6 Tridol C6 ATF contain a combination of hydrocarbon and fluorocarbon surface active agents. It produces a vapour sealing aqueous film that spreads over hydrocarbon fuels to provide rapid control and extinguishment. On polar solvents an insoluble polymer membrane is formed which protects the foam blanket from the destructive effects of the solvent.
Angus Fire’s Fluoroprotein (FP) foam concentrates are based on advanced protein foam technology and are ideal for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. The protein base provides a tough cohesive foam blanket with high resistance to heat that quickly smothers, cools, and seals the risk. Fluorochemical surface active agents, combined with the protein base, increase the fluidity and fuel shedding properties of the foam.
Fluoroprotein foams are ideal to use in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as aviation kerosene, crude oil, gasoline, and diesel fuel) are stored, processed, or transported. They are used extensively for tank protection and other refinery based risks as well as at jetties and offshore installations, process areas, road/rail loading racks, marine terminals.
Tankmaster C6 is a high quality FluoroProtein (FP) foam concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires, particularly deep seated tank fires. It is used at a 3% induction rate.
Niagara C6 AR-FFFP
Niagara C6 is a superior quality Alcohol Resistant Film-Forming FluoroProtein (AR-FFFP) fire fighting foam concentrate at 3% induction rate for extinguishing and securing both flammable hydrocarbon and polar solvent liquid fires.
Just like the FluoroProtein (FP) foam concentrates, Film forming Fluoroprotein (FFFP) foams are based on advanced protein foam technology and are ideal for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. FFFP foams have the additional advantage that they can be used unaspirated due to their ability to film form. The protein base provides a tough cohesive foam blanket with high resistance to heat that quickly smothers, cools, and seals the risk, and the film formation ability brings rapid knockdown.
FFFP foams are ideal to use in high risk situations where hydrocarbons (such as aviation kerosene, crude oil, gasoline, and diesel fuel) are stored, processed, or transported. They are used extensively on Rapid Intervention Vehicles at major international airports and military bases where fast extinguishment and post-fire security with limited quantities of foam concentrate are essential.
Angus Fire manufactures a world leading film forming fluoroprotein foam for airport fire services. PetrosealC6 combines the speed of AFFF with the post-fire security of fluoroprotein.

Class A fires (wood, paper, timber, etc) are extinguished by wetting the combustible material. This also prevents re-ignition. Foams that reduce the surface tension of water to increase penetrating power are best suited for Class A fires.
Forexpan is a synthetic fire fighting foam concentrate specially formulated for Class A applications such as forestry and wildland fire control, structural fires and tyre and paper fires.
The balanced chemical system in Forexpan reduces the surface tension of water to increase the penetrating power into burning Class A materials.
High expansion foams are ideal to use at medium expansion at minor incidents such as small hydrocarbon liquid spill fires where close approach to the fire allows hand-held apparatus to be used. They can also be used in conjunction with fixed installations to provide bund protection, where it can achieve extinction of fires or suppression of toxic vapour release after chemical spillage.
Expandol is a superior quality high expansion fire fighting foam concentrate for extinguishing and securing flammable hydrocarbon liquid fires. Expandol produces large-volumes of high expansion foam for use in total flooding applications, marine fire fighting and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) applications.
Trainol 6 is a fluorine free foam concentrates for 6% usage, which has been specially formulated to provide a unique training foam with a synthetic base material but no fluorosurfactants. Trainol mimics the performance of Angus Tridol S AFFF, the aviation industry standard for fire fighting foams, to provide realistic fire training without the use of fluorinated chemicals.
Trainol 6 is a fluorosurfactant free training foam which mimics the application and physical properties of Angus Tridol C6 S AFFF 6% fire fighting foam.
Trainol 6 should be used in training through conventional foam induction and delivery equipment (such as the Angus Hi-Combat range of portable foam equipment). It is not recommended for real life fire fighting incidents.
