Extinguishing Agent

3MTM Novec TM 1230 fire Protection Fluids is a flurorinaized Kenton (FK -5-1-12 D


odecafiuoro-2­methylpentan-3-one) Compo carbon florin an oxygen (CF3 CF2 C(O)CF(CF3)2) It is colorless, electrically non- Conductive and has a low odor. It Suppresses fire primarily by physical mechanisms

with minimal effect on the available oxygen. This allows people to see and breathe, permitting them to leave the fire area safely. Novec 1230 fluid is acceptable for use in occupied spaces when used in accordance with the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program

rules Although Novec 1230 fluid is considered non-toxic to humans In concentrations necessary to extin­guisher most fires, certain Safety consideration should be observed when applying and handling the agent. The discharge of Novec 1230 fluid may create a hazard to people from the decomposition prod­ucts which result when the agent exposed to fire or other hot surfaces. Exposure to the agent is gener­ally of less concern than is exposure to the decomposition products unnecessary exposure to the agent or the decomposition products should be avoided.


Novec 1230 fluid is clean and leaves no residue, thereby eliminating costly after-fire clean-up and keeping Expensive downtime to a minimum. Most materials such as steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and other metals as well as plastics, rubber and electronic components are unaffected by exposure to novec 1230 fluid.


Novec 1230 fluid complies with the NFPA Standard 2001, Standard for clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems, EPA SNAP Program, (significant New Alternate Policy), Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.(UL) FM Approvals (FM).
