Mechanical Foam Fire Extinguisher

Mechanical Foam Fire Extinguisher i.e. AFFF or AR-AFFF has the ability to from an aqueous film, which quickly forms over water insoluble hydrocarbon fuel surfaces causing rapid fire extinguishment and vapour suppression for Class B fires. It also provides excellent penetrating and wetting qualities when used on class A fires.

What is a foam extinguisher used for?
