Firefoam is a flame-retardant foam that extinguishes fire on contact and prevents fire from spreading on tiles it covers. It also gives the Covered in firefoam status to pawns standing inside, reducing Flammability to 0%. This status lasts for a short time after exiting firefoam.

Firefoam is considered filth, creating a significant beauty and cleanliness penalty. Colonists will automatically clean firefoam in the home area, and it will be washed away with rain or snow.

The following release firefoam:

Firefoam is generally released in an explosion. This explosion does no damage. The explosion will put out pawns and animals that are on fire, though the foam coating the ground does not actually extinguish fires.

Analysis

Trivia
