Biodegradable and Non Toxic Foam ConcentrateBiodegradable and Non Toxic Foam Concentrate

Class-A Plus

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

Chemguard Class “A” is a non-corrosive, non-toxic, biodegradable foam concentrate. When mixed with water in the correct proportion, it changes the properties of water. It reduces the surface tension of the water, and produces foam, which allows the water to cling to vertical or horizontal surfaces without run off. This allows the water to absorb more heat and provides greater penetration into Class “A” fuels.

    Recently ordered Chemguard-Class-A Plus Foam by SOS Safety, it came out to be of very high quality and I would highly recommend getting it via SOS, as they support their customers in each and every query.
