Development of foam concentrates at the FRS CR and in world
Foam concentrates can be divided into two basic groups - protein and synthetic ones. Developmentally older protein concentrates are still produced, at approximately 10% of total production. Their main advantages are better degradability in nature (as produced from animal products - horns, hooves, etc.) combined with significantly lower corrosive effects. The disadvantage lies in more complicated production and unsuitable use in mobile systems - sediment is formed when the concentrate moves. However, many consumers still use these products in stationary systems where there is not enough corrosion protection.
