    We give you our word — and a warranty

    Many hydrofluorocarbon clean agents are facing a global phase down as a result of their high global warming potentials (GWP), just like halon was phased out due to its high ozone depletion potential (ODP). Fortunately, 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid has no ODP and a GWP of less than one, more than 99.9% lower than common HFCs.

    When you create a specification, you’re making a recommendation that will serve your customer for the long term. Your name and your best effort are in that spec. That’s why we created the 3M™ Blue Sky(℠) Warranty to support your specifications.

    Here’s how it works:
    For systems registered in the Blue Sky Warranty database, if 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is banned from or restricted in use as a fire protection agent, due to its ozone depletion potential or global warming potential, within 20 years after installation, we’ll refund the purchase price of the fluid.

Protect what matters. 3M™ Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation halon and HFC clean agent replacement technology. In a typical total flooding system, the fluid is stored as a liquid in cylinders pressurized with nitrogen. Automatic detection sensors trigger release when the fire is at the incipient stage, extinguishing it in mere seconds by rapidly removing heat.

    Protect your vital systems with Novec™ 1230 Fire Suppression Fluid

    • 3M™ 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 damaging residues, so the systems do not have to be cleaned and remain up and running after the release of Novec fluid.
    • 3M Novec fire protection fluid gives you the peace of mind that you’ve made a smart choice, a safe choice, and a choice that will help both sustain your business operations and, with a global warming potential of less than one, meet important sustainability goals. It offers the highest known margin of safety for human occupancy of any clean agent under the NFPA 2001 standard (2022 edition).
    • Because Novec fluid is stored as a liquid and discharged as a gas, it can be transported by air to help enable quick refills. Each shipment includes a 3M Certificate of Analysis verifying the product has been tested to meet both 3M internal and NFPA 2001 (2022 edition, section A.5.1.2.3) standards for quality.
