Class A, B, & LNG Fires High-Expansion Foam


JET-X High-Expansion Foam Concentrates are flexible firefighting agents, used in fighting Class A, Class B, and LNG fires both indoors and outdoors. Expansion ratios from 50:1 up to 1000:1 make them suitable for a variety of applications including aircraft hangars, flammable liquid storage areas, and LNG facilities.

When used with high-expansion generators, JET-X High-Expansion Foam Concentrate can fill large areas, such as aircraft hangars, warehouses, ship cargo holds, mine shafts, and extinguish horizontal and vertical (three-dimensional) fires.

When used with medium-expansion foam equipment, the concentrate forms a foam blanket that prevents the release of fuel vapor and also provides additional cooling due to the higher water content. Medium-expansion foam has benefits in outdoor applications because the foam is less affected by wind conditions.

Agent features:
  • Minimal water damage to structure or contents
  • Hazardous run-off is greatly reduced compared to sprinkler systems, which require large volumes of water
  • Little or no damage to electrical equipment
  • Available in 2% concentrate for use in fresh water
  • Available in 2 ¾% concentrate for use in fresh, hard or salt water

UL listed, the concentrates are available in a 5 gal (19 L) pail, 55 gal (208 L) drum, or 265 gal (1003 L) tote.

Additional Product Information

The concentrate is a synthetic-based formulation comprised of hydrocarbon surfactants, solvents, and stabilizers for use with medium and high-expansion foam generators. It is transported and stored as a concentrate to provide ease of use and considerable savings in weight and volume.

JET-X 2% High-Expansion Foam Concentrate

JET-X 2% High-Expansion Foam Concentrate can be used to produce foam with expansion ratios ranging from 50:1 to 1000:1 depending on the type of generator and its operating pressure. It must only be proportioned with fresh water. When used with high expansion generators, recommended proportioning is at 2% (2 gallons JET-X concentrate with 98 gallons water). When used with medium-expansion foam nozzles, it is typically proportioned at a 2% concentration.

JET-X 2¾% High-Expansion Foam Concentrate

JET-X 2 ¾% High-Expansion Foam Concentrate can be used to produce foam with expansion ratios ranging from 50:1 to 1000:1 depending on the type of generator and its operating pressure. It can be proportioned with fresh, salt or hard water. When used with high expansion generators, recommended proportioning is at 2.75% (2.75 gallons JET-X concentrate with 97.25 gallons water). When used with medium-expansion foam nozzles, it is typically proportioned at a 2% concentration.
