Quickly and Safely Extinguishing Car Fires

TeslaFire

This video shows F-500 Encapsulator Agent at only ½% extinguishing this car fire in about 5 seconds. Notice how fast the temperature drops from 2000ºF to 78 ºF in seconds.

According to NFPA, 15% of the calls firefighters make are car fires, and today’s car fires are more challenging than ever. Shouldn’t you have the best tools available?

Magnesium Components – F-500 EA will not explode, like when using water or foam. It rapidly cools and extinguishes Class D steering columns, dashboards and door frames.

Lithium-ion Batteries – Only F-500 EA has been recommended by independent companies for today’s hybrid and electric car fires, minimizing the amount of water needed.

Polar and Nonpolar Fuels – You don’t need AFFF for diesel fuel and AR-AFFF for ethanol-blended fuels. F-500 EA extinguishes both fuels. If there’s a fuel spill, the F-500 EA encapsulates the fuel, rendering it nonflammable. Firefighters can safely work the scene and traffic can continue.

Beware of Magnesium Components in Cars

TeslaFire

Many of the fires firefighters respond to are car fires and today’s car fires must be approached with great caution. To make cars lighter for better fuel mileage, many components are made of Class D magnesium.  Applying water or foam will cause a dangerous explosion that could cause injury to the firefighter or damage to expensive gear.

In this video, you will see firefighters confronted with a fully involved, magnesium steering column burning at over 5,000ºF. These firefighters were using only 1% F-500 EA, and yet you will see there were no magnesium explosions. Although we recommend Class D fires be approached with a 3% solution of F-500 Encapsulator Agent, 1% F-500 EA is safe for the small amount of magnesium in car fires. It just takes a little longer to cool the magnesium.

Using F-500 EA on car fires not only provides that extra margin of safety, preventing magnesium flash, but also is recommended by third parties for today’s lithium-ion battery, hybrid and electric car fires. And if there’s a fuel spill, F-500 EA will not only extinguish both polar Class B ethanol-blended E10 and nonpolar Class B diesel fuel, but it will safely encapsulate the fuel spill, allowing the fuel to quickly evaporate without the fear of ignition.

Why You Should Be Using F500 EA

If you are concerned about firefighter cancer, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about the environment, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about lithium-ion battery car fires, you should be using F500 EA.

If you are concerned about Class D fires or mag flash during car fires, you should be using F500 EA.

If your firefighting agent does not provide permanent burn back resistance, you should be using F500 EA.

If you know that foam is not recommended for three-dimensional Class B fires, you should be using F500 EA.

F-500 Encapsulator Agent is now recognized by NFPA 18A Section 7.7.  It extinguishes a fire three-ways. F500 EA encapsulates fuels, rendering them nonflammable.  It rapidly cools – remove the heat; extinguish the fire. F500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction.

One agent is all you need. You can use F-500 EA for Class A, B polar, B nonpolar, Class D, three-dimensional fires and it is recommended by ConEdison/FDNY for transformer fires and by many companies for lithium-ion battery fires.

Reducing Smoke Virtually Eliminates Cancer Causing Toxins

warehouse fire in Böblingen, Germany

You can easily reduce cancer-causing toxins in smoke by applying 1-3% F-500 Encapsulator Agent in the water stream. This reduces the carcinogens everyone on the fire scene is exposed to. Independent tests show toxins are reduced 98.6% and smoke is reduced 97%. Plus, the scalding steam quickly turns into a warm vapor.

This should be a major concern for every firefighter.

It’s not magic; just a unique solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

F-500 EA extinguishes fires three ways. In addition to removing the heat and encapsulating fuels, F-500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction. This reduces the airborne particulates, greatly reducing toxins in the smoke. F-500 Encapsulator Agent is well-suited to Class A, Class B polar and nonpolar, Class D, three-dimensional fires, and is the only agent recommended for lithium-ion battery and transformer fires.

Watch the video to see how F-500 EA quickly changes the black smoke to a warm, white vapor. This means the cancer-causing toxins are reduced.

Prepare for Todays Car Fires

magnesium steering column

According to NFPA, 17% of the fires firefighters respond to are car fires. Are you properly prepared?

Today’s car fires are different from car fires of 20 years ago and you should be using the most current tools to fight them.

·Magnesium Components – Steering columns, door and seat frames and dashboards. Using water or foam will result in a flare-up or dangerous explosion. The F-500 EA molecules form a protective skin around the droplets completely changing the way heat is removed from fire. An F-500 EA solution will not explode when it hits the magnesium and begins cooling, rapidly. The Solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent

·Lithium-ion Batteries in Hybrid and Electric Cars – NFPA testing showed an average of 1692 gallons of water to extinguish one of these fires, with one battery re-igniting 22 hours later. Foam won’t work. Only F-500 EA has been repeatedly proven to extinguish these fires, quickly and permanently. How much water can you carry to a car fire?  The Solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent

·Class B Fuel Fires and Spills – Fuel floats on water. Water is not the answer. Foam can smother spilled fuel, but not flowing fuel, which is a 3-dimensional, Class B fire. And which foam would you use? Most fuels today contain ethanol (E10, E85), requiring expensive AR-AFFF. F-500 EA excels at polar or nonpolar Class B fires, whether flowing or spilled on the ground. With F-500 EA, you can actually render spilled fuel nonflammable, and get the traffic moving.  The Solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent

·Tires – Tires exude oil as they burn and are actually challenging for water or foam, taking 10-20 times longer to extinguish than F-500 EA. There’s a reason they used F-500 EA to extinguish the one million tire fires in Gila River, AZ and Watertown, WI.  The Solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent

The solution is simple – add 3% F-500 Encapsulator Agent to your stream.

As you watch this video, you will see F-500 EA is the tool you want to extinguish car fires.

Video Shows How Fast F-500 Encapsulator Agent Extinguishes Ethanol

You are the guardians of the highways in your area. And those car fires are hotter, and more dangerous than ever with synthetics, plastics, tires, magnesium components, lithium-ion batteries and polar or nonpolar Class B fuels. One agent is recommended for all of those hazards – F-500 EA.

Today’s ethanol-blended fuels, like E10 and E85 are Class B polar solvents and require the more expensive foams – AR-AFFF. . . or, you could save money and just use F-500 EA, which is excellent on Class A, B and D fires. Not only does it encapsulate fuels, rendering them nonflammable, but it can be safely applied to magnesium components without dangerous explosions.

This video shows F-500 EA on a pure ethanol fire. If it can extinguish pure ethanol, you know it can handle E10 or E85.

You must see this short video.

F500 Encapsulator Agent is The Future of Fire Suppression

F500 logo featured image

How do we get you to believe F-500 Encapsulator Agent is the fire suppression agent of the future?

Encapsulator Agents are now recognized by NFPA because they are a valuable alternative to foams and wetting agents.

•    Less inventory – One agent for Class A, Class B (polar and nonpolar), Class C (lithium-ion batteries, transformers), Class D

•    Greatly reduces carcinogenic toxins – up to 98%

•    Eliminates scalding steam

•    Renders hydrocarbon spills nonflammable

•    Faster knockdown; faster overhauls – less agent used

•    Less water – less diking, drafting, run-off and calls for more water

There is no better or faster agent for car fires. F-500 EA attacks car fires without magnesium explosions and has been recommended by a many companies as the solution for lithium-ion battery hybrid and electric car fires.

The attached flyer shows the capabilities of foam compared to F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

If you don’t use F-500 EA yet, you should read this.

For Polar Solvent Fires and Spills, You Need F-500 Encapsulator Agent

ethanol

With foams, you need ARFF to extinguish nonpolar, Class B fires and you need the more expensive AR-AFFF to extinguish polar, Class B fires, like the ethanol-blended fuels cars are using across the country. With F-500 Encapsulator Agent, it doesn’t matter what type Class B fire.  The same F-500 EA works on Class A, Class B polar, Class B nonpolar, Class D and is even recommended by ConEdison for energized transformer fires (streaming from 125 feet). Multiple companies have also recommended F-500 EA for lithium-ion battery fires, as the only agent that quickly extinguishes these fires, without reignition.

Aside from being able to extinguish almost everything, you get a bonus with F-500 EA. Since it encapsulates hydrocarbons, F-500 EA can render fuel spills nonflammable.  There’s no need for sustaining a blanket of foam. There’s no need for absorbents and costly spill removal.

Yes. F-500 EA will even encapsulate ethanol and ethanol-blended fuels.  Watch this video as the firefighter applies a torch to encapsulated E85 ethanol-blended fuel.
