WD-881A Class A Foam

PHOS-CHeK W881A Class A Foam

PHOS-CHeK WD-881A is a foam-forming water additive designed for use on Class A fires; those defined by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) as fires in ordinary combustible materials such as wood, cloth, paper, rubber, and many plastics.

Composition

PHOS-CHeK WD-881A is a Class A Foam concentrate. It is composed of a mixture of surfactants and other performance components dissolved in a water miscible system. When the concentrate is diluted with water, it produces an excellent "wet water" which then forms a stable foam when mixed with air.

Will PHOS-CHeK WD 881A solutions leach into groundwater?
Is it harmful to wildlife or farm animals?
The acute toxicity of PHOS-CHeK WD 881A foam solutions was studied by the National Biological Service. These studies indicated that no toxicity should be encountered at the highest practical exposure level. The data indicates, also, that foam residues remaining on vegetation after normal use in firefighting operations is unlikely to cause harm if subsequently ingested by animals. The reaction of the digestive systems of animals varies significantly among species, however. Thus we recommend that if domestic animals such as cows or horses eat a large amount of PHOS-CHeK WD 881A, a veterinarian or Animal Poison Control Center be contacted for advice specific to the situation.
