Buckeye 3%-6% LT AR-AFFF is a specially formulated, AFFF designed to be used in cold climates. It is a multipurpose agent producing a vapor suppressing aqueous film on Class B Hydrocarbon type fuels or a polymeric membrane on water miscible type fuels. It is intended for use at a proportioning rate of 3% (3 parts LT AR-AFFF concentrate to 97 parts water) on Class B Hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline, kerosene and diesel. Buckeye 3%-6% LT AR-AFFF is intended for use at a 6% proportioning rate (6 parts AR-AFFF concentrate to 94 parts water) on polar solvent/ water miscible fuels such as alcohols, ketones and esters.
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT: Buckeye 3%-6% LT AR-AFFF is biodegradable, low in toxicity and can be treated in sewage treatment plants. Refer to Buckeye Technical Bulletin regarding foam products and the environment.
STORAGE: If kept in the original manufacturer’s supplied container and stored within the temperature range of 0°F – 120°F (-18°C – 49°C), a shelf life of between 20-25 years can be expected.If the AR-AFFF is to be stored in an atmospheric type foam concentrate storage tank whether on mobile apparatus or stationary, limit the airspace above the surface of the concentrate where possible and place a thin layer of quality mineral oil on the surface of the foam concentrate to minimize any effect from evaporation.
