April 6, 2021, North Carolina — On March 3, National Foam announced the completion of its fluorine free foam manufacturing line expansion in Angier, North Carolina.

This expansion, along with ongoing product initiatives, is designed to support the growing shift to synthetic fluorine free foam concentrates. In a press statement, Bobby Nelson, general manager of National Foam, said National Foam is well positioned to meet the needs of municipal and industrial users in North America, South America, and beyond.

“We have substantially increased our fluorine free foam production to meet the rapidly growing demand in the marketplace,” Nelson said in a press statement.

With the new administration expected to enact PFAS legislation, U.S. chemical, POG manufacturers and warehouse facilities look to convert legacy foam sprinkler systems to fluorine free systems. National Foam offers a step-by-step conversion process that supports end-users throughout this foam concentrate and hardware transition.
