Environmentally responsible Universal Gold 1%/3% is the next generation in Alcohol-Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foams (AR-AFFFs). This proven formulation demonstrates National Foam’s commitment to superior flexibility, firefighting performance, and environmental responsibility. Universal Gold 1%/3% is used at 1% or 3% to extinguish hydrocarbon fires, and 3% for polar-solvent (water-miscible) fires and oxygenated fuel blends. It is suitable for use with foam compatible dry powder extinguishing agents. Fuel type, proportioning accuracy and incident dynamics should be considered when selecting percentage use concentration. Universal Gold 1%/3% is an AR-AFFF concentrate with a special biosynthesized polymer. This polymer is designed to fulfill two functions. The first is to form a protective membrane between the fuel and the foam as it contacts the water-miscible fuel, making extinguishment possible. The second function is to make the foam more stable and heat-resistant, resulting in better burnback resistance and sealability compared to conventional AFFFs. The unique state-of-the-art Universal Gold 1%/3% concentrate formulation is recognized by United States Patents 4,999,119 and 5,207,932.
