27 Excerpt - NFPA; Section 18 Both experience and tests have indicated that the addition of a proper wetting agent to water will, when properly applied, increase the extinguishing efficiency of that water by reducing the quantity of water needed and the amount of time needed to effectively fight the fire. Certain types of fires, such as those in baled cotton, stacked hay, some rubber compounds, and some flammable liquids, that do no ordinarily respond to treatment with water might be extinguished when a proper wetting agent is used. This property can be attributed to an increase in the penetrating, spreading, and emulsifying powers of water due to factors such as a lowering of the surface tension. As a result, the treated water acquires the ability to penetrate into small openings and recesses that water would flow over by the simple bridging action of the surface film.
