AFFF works by forming a fire extinguishing film on the surface of a burning liquid. It has a cooling action with a wider extinguishing application than water on solid combustible materials.

 Best for wood, cloth, paper plastics, coals etc. fires involving solids. Liquids such as grease, oils, paint, petrol (except chip or fat pan fires).


Foam extinguishers are suitable for use on small fires involving flammable liquids such as paints, oil or fats. These are known as Class B Fires

For deep-fat fryers, wet chemical extinguishers (Class F) should be used instead.

Foam extinguishers are also suitable for use on Class A fires.

Foam should be applied gently onto the surface of a contained burning liquid fire. This creates a barrier between the burning liquid and air and stops the release of flammable vapours.


Foams used in extinguishers produce low expansion foam, the most popular being AFFF.

Most modern portable foam extinguishers use AFFF since it offers superior performance and is good for general fire protection;


The advantages of foam are

It is

•  non-toxic;

•  suitable for multi risks (Classes A and B);

•  is effective against obstructed Class B fires;

•  prevents re-ignition of flammable liquids;

•  extinguishes fire progressively; and

•  does not impair visibility.


Foam is ineffective against running fires since it is difficult to maintain the foam blanket.

Hence, caution should be observed when using foam on free-flowing flammable liquid fires.

Some liquids, such as alcohols, will rapidly break down the foam, impairing the extinguishing action.


If this type of hazard exists, special alcohol-resistant foam extinguishers should be considered.

Powder extinguishers may offer an alternative and suitable firefighting media.

Foam is not suitable to use on live electrical equipment.
