Flamax Brand Tec Base Extinguishing Agent For Metal Fires
Regular extinguishing agent such as water, foam or dry chemical powders are not suitable for extinguishing metal fires especially sodium, potassium, lithium, magnesium and alloys because water react dangerously with metal at normal condition.
Foamtech manufactured Flamax Brand TEC base Extinguishing Agent for metal fire such as sodium, potassium, lithium, magnesium and alloys is made in such a fashion to treat any type of metal fires. It is designed with three (ternary) chlorides salts and free flowing agent & water repellant agents so as to get best performing powder.
In sodium fires, for example combustion of sodium in air results in the formation of sodium peroxide and sodium oxide. The rate of reaction is controlled by rate vaporization of sodium and the rate diffusion of oxygen in combustion zone. In light of these factors, Flamax Brand TEC base Extinguishing Agent has capability to cease these factors by fusing at above 600oC to absorb heat from the metal and make solid crust on the metal surface resulting cut-off oxygen and heat radiation. Flamax Brand TEC base Extinguishing Agent reacts readily with free radicals of metals and terminates the chain reaction resulting quick and effective knock down.
