  • Don’t Just Manage a Fire. Extinguish It.

    3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a highly-effective clean agent fire suppressant, designed to extinguish a fire in its incipient stage before it has a chance to spread. It is applied as a gas, but is liquid at room temperature, and can be effectively used in streaming, flooding systems, or for use in inerting and explosion suppression applications.

  • Knocks down fires fast

    Novec 1230 Fluid has a very low heat of vaporization, approximately 25 times less than that of water. This, along with a higher vapor pressure, causes Novec 1230 Fluid to evaporate more than 50 times faster than water. It also allows the clean agent to transition from a liquid to a gaseous state very rapidly when discharged through a nozzle, and readily achieve vapor extinguishing concentrations in air. With high extinguishing efficiency and a wide margin of safety, Novec 1230 fluid is a great alternative to water sprinkler systems, foam and dry chemicals due to:

    • Low toxicity (no harm to personnel)
    • Extinguishes fires in less than half the time of CO2 & inert gases
    • No damage to sensitive equipment
    • Not targeted for emission reduction or phaseout
