In this field, AUSWET 1000 has the advantage of less weight to carry compared with less concentrated surfactants and of being non-flammable.It increases the wetting power of water which assists in quick control and mopping up of fires. It is of particular value where water may not be readily available, when a less drenching spray is needed and a tankful will cover a bigger area.
