Replacement ABF bottle for Lifeline 2020 electrical system. ABF replaces the previous AFFF foam. The ABF is more effective so a smaller amount of material and a smaller bottle is required. Less material = less weight!
The ABF foam suppressant is a water-based liquid that coats surfaces, removing the ignition source and oxygen. The foam can only suppress what it is in sight so the position of the nozzles is critical. Once the fire is smothered the foam stays behind to prevent flare-ups. It works especially well on fuel and oil fires but not good at all for an electrical fire. Clean-up is easy as you can rinse surfaces clear but the chemical can be corrosive if left behind.
