Hello Folks, What happens to foam during a fire? Jim Harbin

Jim, Foam is not a panacea but it is touted as so......It usually is a petroleum based product (finite resource) and the out gasses under normal conditions "can" be harmful to the people and the environment....under fire conditions this can be deadly. OTOH, Foam is very energy efficient which reduces the consumption of fossil fuel based resources which further endangers people.......the jury IMHO is still out as the existing net gain/net loss is funded by the foam (aka petroleum industry) and I really don't know. I wish I did as we use foam for projects and it does save people money in the long term.
It depends on the foam. I've see the foam that is fire retardant that you spray on a fire to put it out. I've also seen non fire retardant foam melt away like it was never there.
