    Korea Fire Institute (KFI) Approves 3M Novec 1230 Fluid

    July 28, 2016

    • Businesses with operations in Korea now have peace of mind that 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid can be specified in total flooding systems requiring approval from the Korea Fire Institute (KFI). Novec 1230 fluid revolutionized the fire protection market 15 years ago. Today, with more than 50,000 system installations in over 90 countries, and the approvals to back up our promises, we continue to move the industry forward with the purpose of delivering a clean agent solution that is designed to work now and for years to come.

      With an agreement reached under the Montreal Protocol that the framework for a global phasedown of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) will be decided in 2016, specifying 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid has never been more important. At 3M, we are proud to be known for sustainable, consistent, quality products, and as a reliable source of supply time and time again.

      And now, Seoul-based Hanju Chemical, with 3M Korea support, has achieved Korea Fire Institute (KFI) approval for their fully engineered Blazero™ 1230 system using Novec 1230 fluid. Hanju Chemical’s CEO, HD Park, recently hosted over 300 customers and dignitaries in a gala launch of their new product offering for the Korean market. So, there’s no reason why businesses with operations in Korea and elsewhere shouldn’t specify this high performing, low GWP clean agent to help protect what matters (PDF, 1.39 MB). Because when you specify a fire suppression system with Novec 1230 fluid, you’re not just safeguarding people, buildings, equipment and operations, you’re helping preserve the world we live in.
