PRESS RELEASE

CLAYTON, Mo. — Perimeter Solutions (NYSE: PRM), a leading global manufacturer of high-quality fire retardant and firefighting foam, announced today that its SOLBERG® 3% MIL-SPEC Synthetic Fluorine-Free Foam is the first fluorine-free firefighting foam concentrate on the Department of Defense Qualified Products List (QPL) to be GreenScreen Certified® by Clean Production Action (CPA). Firefighting foams that are GreenScreen Certified meet stringent requirements established by CPA and are confirmed to be fluorine-free with no intentionally added per- or polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAs).

GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals is a globally recognized chemical hazard assessment method that specifies progress toward the use of increasingly safer chemicals. The GreenScreen Certified Standard for Firefighting Foam requires the manufacturer to provide GreenScreen with a complete list of chemical ingredients used in the foam concentrate, then scores the foam for acute aquatic toxicity through in-depth analytical testing to certify the foam does not use PFAS as well as over 2,000 other chemicals.

When SOLBERG® 3% MIL-SPEC SFFF was added to the DoD QPL in September 2023, that gave airport authorities and other government agencies that are required to use MIL-SPEC-qualified products the ability to transition from aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) to fluorine-free. Since then, Perimeter Solutions has helped hundreds of airports and U.S. military bases make the transition to fluorine-free foam.

“This is a significant milestone for Perimeter Solutions and SOLBERG® 3% MIL-SPEC SFFF,” says Craig McDonnell, VP Fire Suppression Americas & Prevention & Protection Retardant at Perimeter Solutions. “After the MIL-SPEC product was added to the QPL, we talked with representatives from multiple airports who were eager to make the transition to fluorine-free foam technology, but wanted to wait until there was a product that was GreenScreen Certified. Now that we have earned this designation, we are poised to help these airports make the switch to more environmentally responsible firefighting technology.”
