TF6

6% Training Foam Concentrate (TF)

A fluorosurfactant free training foam which mimics the application and physical properties of Angus Petroseal 6% FFFP fire fighting foam.

TF6 is a natural protein based product which mimics the performance of Angus PetrosealC6 6 FFFP, an aviation industry standard for protein based fire fighting foams, to provide realistic fire training without the use of fluorinated chemicals.

TF6 can be used routinely as a substitute for fire vehicle calibration and equipment testing while complying with European regulatory requirements including those of the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Environmental Agency.

TF6 was developed to meet the stringent environmental and regulatory requirements of the aviation sector. TF6 also has clear training benefits for several other fire fighting applications.

  • Fluorosurfactant free
  • Mimics the application and physical properties of Angus Petroseal 6% FFFP
  • Low toxicity

Performance Approvals  

TF6 was developed to meet the stringent environmental and regulatory requirements of the aviation sector, while complying with European regulatory requirements including those of the UK Civil Aviation Authority and Environmental Agency.

Environmental Impact   

TF6 is formulated for minimum environmental impact. It is produced from natural proteins, and is free of fluorinated chemicals, glycol ethers, biocides and zinc. It is also readily biodegradable. TF6 has exceptionally low aquatic toxicity to fresh and seawater organisms. It contains no synthetic detergents and so will not carry hydrocarbons through fuel separators.

Applications  

TF6 is suitable for use in training with 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.

Proportioning   

6% induction is recommended to mimic the induction performance and foam quality characteristics of PetrosealC6 6.
