Novacool UEF MultiPurpose Foam

Advantages & Benefits

We are proud to announce the latest technology from the leading manufacturer of fire suppression foams since 1980: Baum’s Novacool UEF (Universal Extinguishing Foam). Novacool UEF Foam is a mixture of Anionic, Nonionic and Amphoteric surfactants. It does not contain any nonylphenolethoxylates (NPE’s), Flourosurfactants,or Glycol Ethers. Test data show it to be readily biodegradable

Novacool UEF  works in three ways to extinguish a fire

1. It reduces the surface tension of water to improve the penetraing ability of water.

2. .It vastly improves the heat transfer from the fuel into water.

3. It reduces fuel vapor pressure by emulsifying class B materials at the fuel surface.

Novacool UEF Foam is Leaner, Meaner and Greener

  • Uses concentrate of as little as 0.4%
  • Biodegrades rapidly and is not bio-accumulative
  • Fills voids and sticks to a vertical surface when applied as foam through a foaming nozzle or CAF system
  • Contains no alcohols (will not cause AFFF to de-foam)
  • Creates a good foam when mixed with all water types: fresh, brackish and sea water
  • Greatly reduces or eliminates run-off due to the reduced amount of water required to extinguish the fire and the wetting properties that keep the water on and in the fuel
  • Coats class A fuels (even waxy vegetation) to increase moisture content and provides a barrier to an oncoming flame front

Novacool Foam passed all requirements for UL testing with flying colors and currently holds UL Certification NFPA 18, 2006 Edition Classification for A and B.

• Minimizes risk of fires re-igniting
