  • Description

    Access the latest knowledge and information on Class A firefighting foam chemicals with NFPA 1150, 2022 edition.

    Foam extinguishing agents and how they are used in fighting fires is always evolving. NFPA 1150, Standard on Foam Chemicals for Fires in Class A Fuels, intends to increase fire protection levels by providing comprehensive performance requirements for assessing the safety and effectiveness of these critical fire suppression products. The standard applies to foam chemicals used to control, suppress, or prevent fires in Class A fuels.

    NFPA 1150 criteria covers:

    • Scope and purpose of the standard, references to NFPA® and other publications, and official and general terminologies
    • Characteristics and acceptance requirements, including labeling and documentation
    • Test methods for exposure protection, physical properties, corrosion and materials compatibility, and health, safety, and environmental considerations

    The 2022 edition of NFPA 1150, Standard on Foam Chemicals for Fires in Class A Fuels, is updated to reflect the most current industry practices and technologies.

    Originally created to provide a performance standard dealing with the foam chemicals used in rural areas and controlling wildland fires, NFPA 1150 also addresses structural firefighting and urban environments. The revised document offers cutting-edge provisions for Class A foam and the chemicals used to produce it.

    Notable changes to the 2022 edition of NFPA 1150 include:

    • Addition of a new chapter to identify qualifying fire test methodology for testing foam extinguishing agents for Class A fires (This update guides the user on how the fire test should be conducted for testing, approval, and listing purposes.)
    • Editorial changes to update references and extracted text from other documents

    Help to ensure you and your team are in compliance with current firefighting foam chemical acceptance criteria and test procedures.

    This standard is a must-have for the fire service, manufacturers and producers, and other personnel responsible for ensuring Class A foam products perform as intended.

  • 2017 Edition

    Raise fire protection levels by making sure foam chemicals for Class A fuels meet the latest criteria in the 2017 edition of NFPA 1150.

    NFPA 1150, Standard on Foam Chemicals for Fires in Class A Fuels specifies acceptance requirements and test methods for fire-fighting foam chemicals that are used to control, suppress, or prevent fires in Class A fuels.

    Chapters cover:

    • Characteristics and acceptance requirements for foam concentrate, foam solution, foam, labeling and documentation
    • Test methods, including requirements addressing exposure protection effectiveness; health, safety, and environmental considerations; physical properties; and corrosion and materials compatibility

    For the 2017 edition, a new section has been created within Chapter 5, Types of Training Documents to provide requirements for alternate viscosity test methods for situations in which the viscosity is too low to obtain meaningful results. This important information will be useful for fire departments as well as manufacturers/producers of Class A foam products. (Print, 28 pp., 2017)
