Raise fire protection levels by making sure foam chemicals for class A fuels meet the criteria in the 2010 NFPA 1150.
NFPA 1150: Standard on Foam Chemicals for Fires in Class A Fuels, specifies acceptance requirements and test methods for fire-fighting foam chemicals that are used to control, suppress, or prevent fires in Class A fuels.
In the 2010 edition, an entirely new section has been added regarding exposure protection effectiveness of Class A foams. The standard now includes a test methodology involving lateral ignition flame-spread on substrate treated with foam solutions. This important information will be useful for fire departments as well as manufacturers/ producers of Class A foam products. (Softbound, 21 pp., 2010)
