    3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation halon and HFC clean agent replacement technology, designed to alleviate concerns for human safety, performance and the environment.

    The Novec 1230 fire protection fluid vaporizes quickly (50 times faster than water) when released, is non-corrosive and not electrically conductive, so that sensitive electronic systems such as data centers, server rooms, telecommunications or other equipment are not damaged. In contrast to foam or powder, it does not leave any annoying residues, so the systems do not have to be cleaned and remain ready for use.
