  • 1. THE EPA 2010/15 PFOA C 6 STEWARDSHIP PROGRAMME: BIG CHANGES TO FIRE FIGHTING FOAM MANUFACTURE ARE COMING! OIL TECHNICS….. READY! FOAM USERS……READY? 15, 14, 2013…… ARE YOU READY TO TALK/MEET WITH US? C6 WHAT IS IT? TRADITIONALY FIRE FIGHTING FOAM CONCENTRATES ARE MANUFACTURED USING FLUORINATED SURFACTANTS WITH AN Rf CARBON CHAIN LENGTH BETWEEN C6 AND C12. C6 IS A PROJECT TO REFORMULATE TRADITIONAL FIRE FIGHTING FOAM CONCENTRATES USING SURFACTANTS CONTAINING AN Rf CHAIN OF C6 OR LESS (MAKING SUCH FIRE FIGHTING FOAMS MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY)!
  • 2. Q“IF THIS CHANGE IS GOING TO EFFECT US THE MANUFACTURER, HOW IS IT GOING TO EFFECT YOU THE END USER”? ANS: YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF THREE THINGS AND THEY ARE:  IS YOUR EXISTING FOAM 2010/15 COMPLIANT?  IS IT UL162 APPROVED?  WILL YOUR EXISTING STOCK BE COMPATIBLE TO THE NEW C6 FIRE FIGHTING FOAM? YOU ALSO NEED TO CONSIDER: IF YOU TRY TO BLEND C6 FIRE FIGHTING FOAM WITH YOUR EXISTING STOCK OF FOAM YOU WILL LOSE THE C6 BENEFITS. IF YOU CONTINUE TO USE YOUR EXISTING STOCK AFTER 2015 YOU MAY FIND IT IS NO LONGER BEING MANUFACTURED AS IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY MANUFACTURERS WITH THE C6 FOAM. YOU NEED TO DECIDE AND PLAN/BUDGET NOW FOR; WHETHER TO CHANGE OUT YOUR EXISTING STOCK AND REPLACE WITH C6 OR WAIT UNTIL 2015. OIL TECHNICS…… READY! FOAM USERS…… READY! ARE YOU READY TO TALK TO US? DO YOU WANT US TO COME AND TALK TO YOU? For more information, contact me at david.holmes@oiltechnics.com
