Extinguishing fires is a process of suppressing fires with the use of extinguishing agents, i.e. substances that inhibit combustion processes.
A fire is the phenomenon of uncontrolled spread of fire, which destroys materials located in the area of its occurrence. Fire extinguishing is designed to protect life and property, minimize damage and prevent its further spreading. Burning is effectively inhibited by extinguishing agents which usually work in several stages. These substances, in addition to the final fire extinguishing effect, protect the objects involved in the fire and reduce the time it takes to extinguish. Additional requirements that extinguishing agents are supposed to meet are high efficiency and speed of action, ability to spread easily on surfaces, as well as resistance to recurrence of fire.
Depending on the type of material being burnt, different types of extinguishing agents are used. One of them is extinguishing foam produced from foam-forming concentrates of appropriately selected composition to ensure maximum effectiveness.
