Solberg – The firefighting foam products division of Amerex Corporation
Industries around the world are changing faster than ever before. Advances in technology, new manufacturing processes, environmental issues, stricter regulations, and improved safety standards pose greater demand for smarter, more innovative approaches in foam fire suppression.
SOLBERG, the firefighting foam products division of Amerex Corporation, is based in Green Bay, Wisconsin with operations in Bergen, Norway and Sydney, Australia. The company has been involved with the manufacture of firefighting foams since the early-1970s.
The company is a global resource for firefighting foam concentrates and foam suppression systems hardware. Solberg offers an extensive line of environmentally sustainable fluorosurfactant and fluoropolymer-free foam concentrate products, an innovation in Class B firefighting foam, and traditional Class B (C6 based) AFFF and AR-AFFF firefighting foam concentrates including a Class A foam. SOLBERG Foam Suppression Systems Hardware is engineered by a team with over 225 years of combined in-the-field fire protection experience for high-hazard, high-risk environments.
RE-HEALING™ foam concentrates from SOLBERG are an innovative environmentally sustainable fluorosurfactant and fluoropolymer-free firefighting foam used to effectively extinguish Class B fuels with no environmental concerns for persistence, bioaccumulation or toxic breakdown. RE-HEALING foam can be used with fresh, salt or brackish water and possess excellent burn back resistance due to its remarkable flow and rapid sealing characteristics.
SOLBERG RE-HEALING foam concentrates are formulated using a new high performance synthetic foam technology designed to replace traditional AFFF and AR-AFFF foam concentrates and older fluoroprotein foams. Concentrates are available in 1%, 3%, 6%, 3×3% ATC™ and 3×6% ATC formulations.

The first U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 2010/2015 PFOA Stewardship Program Compliant Foam Concentrates… ARCTIC™ foam concentrates from SOLBERG are PFOS-free, C6 based synthetic firefighting foam concentrates used to effectively extinguish Class B fuel fires. ARCTIC foam concentrates provide rapid extinguishment and excellent burn back resistance and can be used in fresh, salt or brackish water.
ARCTIC AFFF foam concentrates are intended for use on Class B hydrocarbon fuel fires and are available in 1%, 3% and 6% concentrations. ARCTIC ATC foam concentrates are intended for use on Class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuel fires. Concentrates are available in 1×1%, 1X3%, 3×3%, and 3×6% ATC formulations. All ARCTIC foam concentrates can be used to prevent re-ignition of a liquid spill and control hazardous vapours, and will improve extinguishment in deep-seated fires.

FIRE-BRAKE™ foam concentrate from SOLBERG meets NFPA 1150 and is listed on USDA Forest Service (USFS) Qualified Products List (QPL). FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate is a synthetic firefighting foam concentrate specially designed to be used for wildland, structural and other Class A fuel fires. The foam concentrate is biodegradable and non-toxic, so it is environmentally sustainable.
FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate has the ability to reduce the surface tension of water, which substantially increases water’s overall wetting capability. This creates a faster penetration and greater fire control when attacking combustible Class A fuels. FIRE-BRAKE foam concentrate is proportioned at a rate of 0.1% – 1.0% in fresh, salt or brackish water.
Solberg has the expertise, capabilities and resources to serve the fire protection and firefighting industry. Solberg’s people and processes are committed to quality, service and safety along with environmental responsibility. This philosophy enables the company to flourish while delivering innovations and value.
Solberg’s unique technology and foam systems hardware is preferred by customers in the aerospace, aviation, chemical, defense, energy, fire services, marine, mining, oil and gas, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, pipeline, solvent & coatings and utilities industries.
