SOLBERG® VERSAGARD™ 1×3 multipurpose fluorine-free foam concentrate is a state-of-the-art, alcohol resistant fluorine-free pseudoplastic foam technology. Non-persistent, siloxane-free, with no intentionally added PFAS chemicals, SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 is designed for extinguishing and securing both Class B (hydrocarbon fuel and polar solvent fuel) and deep-seated Class A fires. SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 is a combination of hydrocarbon surfactants and additives producing excellent foam expansion, product stability, vapor sealing, extinguishment and burnback properties for both shallow and fuel in-depth fires, using fresh, sea or brackish water. This fluorine-free concentrate has been engineered to produce a stable and long-draining foam blanket, while ensuring a concentrate with improved storage, handling, proportioning and long-term stability.

A Broad Range of Use Applications

SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 is designed to generate stable foams with high fluidity and slow drainage. This novel technology allows SOLBERG VERSAGARD to perform similarly to fluorinated products. It may be used with low expansion foam equipment (nozzles and monitors) at 1% for hydrocarbons and low, medium & high-expansion foam discharge devices at 3% to fight fires involving Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. It is fully compatible with standard firefighting equipment, including in-line inductors, self-inducting nozzles, fire truck pumps, bladder tanks, pump skids, balanced pressure systems and more. The viscosity of this product can increase in case of very low temperatures and the use of special equipment could be recommended. In addition to its excellent foamability and bubble stability, SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 has excellent wetting ability, making it an effective tool for the extinguishment of Class A fuel fires.


SOLBERG VERSAGARD 1×3 has been the subject of multiple large-scale fire testing programs. Results include:

  • Achieved high rating and certified in European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 3 & 4 on all fuels with fresh and sea water – IA/IB- IA/IA (acetone/IPA)
  • Passed and certified to European Standard EN-1568:2018 part 1 & 2 – for use at 3% with medium- and high-expansion foam discharge devices
  • International Maritime Organization certification MSC.1/Circ. 1312
  • LASTFIRE batch-certified with three nozzles (semi, asp, system)
