Chemguard is introducing ULTRAGUARD C135, an
ultra-high-performance 1%-3% alcohol-resistant aqueous film-forming foam (AR-AFFF) concentrate.
ULTRAGUARD C135 outperforms every foam concentrate in its class.
by a substantially lower viscosity than other 1%-3% polar solvent
AR-AFFF concentrates, ULTRAGUARD C135 can improve performance in all
types of foam proportioning equipment, including in-line eductors,
balanced-pressure systems, and built-in foam systems on fire apparatus.
ULTRAGUARD C135 also offers better firefighting properties than other
AR-AFFF foam concentrates and is effective with blended gasoline
additives, such as methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) and
ethanol-blended fuels. ULTRAGUARD C135 is ideally suited for municipal
applications, where a variety of flammable liquid spills and/or fires
Formulated from special fluorochemical and
hydrocarbon surfactants, high-molecular-weight polymers, and solvents,
ULTRAGUARD C135 is specified for use as a 1% proportioned solution on
hydrocarbon fuels and a 3% proportioned solution on polar fuels, using
fresh, salt, or hard water. ULTRAGUARD C135 can be transported and
stored as a concentrate, offering both ease of use and the substantial
savings from reduced weight and volume.
Laboratories successfully tested ULTRAGUARD C135 to the requirements
contained in UL Standard 162, "Standard for Air-Foam Equipment and
Liquid Concentrates," and lists ULTRAGUARD C135 for use with UL-listed
Readily biodegradable, ULTRAGUARD C135
contains no perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) or perfluorooctanoic acid
