Signature Series Foam

Signature Series Foam was created to be clean and environmentally friendly without sacrificing effectiveness. It was developed for successful extinguishment with the current appliances, tactics and application rates at 1% for hydrocarbons and 3% for polar solvents with the best extinguishment time for in-depth fuel fires.

  • Best fire and vapor suppression for in-depth fuel fires
  • Cleanest C6 foam on the market
  • Lowest viscosity for foam concentrates
  • Working temperatures down to 20F(-6.6C)

“I am putting my name on it because if I had to go to a fire today, based on the testing I have witnessed, there is no question in my mind that this is the foam I will use! First is the performance of the product and second maintaining the most environmentally friendly product we can, but it's about performance to protect the men, women and property.”

Why Choose This Foam?

Dwight has always “thought outside the box” and is continuing to develop new products that reduce risk, minimize exposure, and save life and property. With over 100 major successful operations of extinguishment and control of hazardous situations, Dwight re-defined extinguishment by making it faster and safer with less exposure to the firefighter.

Dwight has been working diligently to develop a foam concentrate that will outperform any on the market today. His goal was to create a foam better than the original 3M® ATC foam to which he assisted in developing and his new Signature Series Foam Concentrate is a testament to that fact.

Plunge Test

Dwight Williams’ plunge test was developed out of a necessity to provide scaled testing utilizing a 42” diameter pan. The test consists of applying the finished foam at a marginal application rate of 0.06 gallons per minute per square foot to test the effectiveness of the finished foam. The expansion of the foam solution in the nozzle is not greater than a 6:1 which is typical for current larger delivery devices. The key for this test is the finished foam must plunge though the fuel and rise back to the top with an aggressive delivery. The pan is filled with 1” of water and 5 gallons of gasoline resulting in 1-3/4” of fuel. The finished foam stream must be directed into the center of the pan not banking off the wall or a deflector. This proves the effectiveness of the finished foam; being able to shed the fuel and run until it forms a blanket and extinguishment. For a successful test the complete extinguishment must be achieved in 3 minutes. This test is a representation of a Type III application on large tank fires.
