Hird, D. and Gregsten, M.J., 1956. THE EFFECT OF DRY CHEMICAL EXTINGUISHING AGENTS ON THE EFFICIENCY OF MECHANICAL FOAM. Fire Research Notes 232
A quantitative study has been made of the compatibility of dry chemical with fire-fighting foam, when applied to a petrol fire. It is shown that serious destruction of the foam can occur under some conditions, and that it is almost entirely due to the metallic stearate commonly added to dry chemical extinguishing agents to improve their flowing properties.
