MIL-F-24385 - Military Specification (US)

MIL-F-24385 is a US Military Test Specification that critically tests AFFFs for both extinguishment and burnback in sea and potable (fresh) water.

  • MIL-F-24385 is a similar test to EN 1568 but the results are highly operator dependent and, importantly, it is a very expensive test to have done!

  • Requires a 4.68m² heptane fire with a pre-burn of 10 seconds to be extinguished at an application rate of 1.62L/min/m² using foam with potable and sea water.
