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).
