    Of course, if this goes off in a real-world situation, you’ve got more to worry about than damage from the foam.

    Foam party!

  6. Jim Olson says:

    I expect there is an anti-foam compound they can spray on it that will break the foam down pretty quickly. It may even do it itself and just need to be hosed down.
