Vapor suppression spheres for fire righting, vapor barrier uses

An advanced composite material: Vapor Suppression Spheres are unveiled for large storage tanks containing hydrocarbon polar or non-polar fuels.

Applied as semi-permanent vapor barrier or used as a fire fighting foam additive, the new formulation creates a barrier between both polar and non-polar flammable liquids and vapor space above. It's developed "to last indefinitely" compared to temporary barriers that traditional 'wet' foam provide.

Vapor Suppression Spheres handle high temperatures and have an oil-repellant outer coating.

Individual spheres which vary from 3 to 5 mm, are applied dry. They self-assemble into a foam-like structure that's lighter than both oil and water. Resulting 'foam' suppresses vapors to the point of extinguishing liquid hydrocarbon fires. The dry foam fire suppression works without freezing or bubble degradation. It's said to be environmentally better since it does not contain fluorosurfactants.
