F500 Encapsulator Agent Does It All


Highlights of F-500 Encapsulator Agent

F-500 Encapsulator Agent is an evolution for fire extinguishing agents, and currently the most versatile agent on the market. It is the only agent that has been tested and approved for almost all kinds of fire. With the number of hazards that firefighters face today, it is important that the extinguishing agent used be versatile and effective, as is the case with F-500 EA. With its capabilities to quickly cool and extinguish all types of fire, F-500 EA stands out from its competition for this and much more. It is also useful as a decontamination agent, since it eliminates 98.6% of the toxins that cause cancer in soot and smoke. Watch the following video that highlights F-500 Encapsulator Agent being used on different fires and hazards facing the world today. It addition to these incredible characteristics, this product is free of fluorine in its composition, being environmentally FRIENDLY.

F-500 EA TKO Nozzle Extinguishes this Car Fire in Seconds


We call it a “TKO Nozzle,” short for Turbo Knockdown and Overhaul nozzle. Two liters of F-500 Encapsulator Agent is attached to the nozzle for rapid attack on intermediate sized fires. Two models are available with 20 gpm (75 liters/minute) and 35 gpm (130 liters/minute).

In this video, this car fire is approached with the 20 gpm (75 liters/minute) nozzle set at 1% F-500 EA. Three things are important to notice;

1.  The fire is under control in about ten seconds.

2.  Watch the smoke turn from black to a warm, white vapor.  There is no scalding steam when using F-500 EA and 98% of the carcinogenic toxins have been eliminated. Think about firefighter safety!

3.  Look at the ground. There is no run-off to be concerned about. In fact, only about 3.5 gallons of water were used and 4 ounces of F-500 EA.

Think about rural car fires, or any intermediate sized fire. How much water do you carry?

This is definitely impressive.  Watch this video!

Encapsulating Fuel Spills With F-500 EA

Spill Control

F-500 Encapsulator Agent extinguishes a fire by encapsulating the fuel, rapidly cooling and interrupting the free radical chain reaction, but the ability to encapsulate fuels makes F-500 EA a very versatile tool.You’re at a highway accident scene with a leaking fuel tank from one of the cars. It might be on fire. You could lay a blanket of foam. The foam sits on top of the fuel and traps in the heat. The bubbles will break down and reignition can occur.  So, you lay down more foam. This is probably a polar, ethanol-blended fuel, like E10, so you’re using expensive AR-AFFF. The fuel is still flammable, so you use absorbents to clean up the area, but now the absorbents are flammable. The absorbents must be removed at great expense as a hazardous material.


You could quickly extinguish the fire with F-500 Encapsulator Agent. With a 95 gpm nozzle, it only takes about 20 seconds to fully encapsulate an 8 gallon fuel spill. You could confirm the LELs are at near zero and allow traffic to drive through. The fuel will safely evaporate.

This video will show how easily fuel is encapsulated.

See How Fast F-500 EA Extinguishes Ethanol Fires


You are the guardians of the highways in your area. And those car fires are hotter than ever with synthetics, plastics, tires, magnesium components, lithium-ion batteries and polar or nonpolar Class B fuels. One agent handles 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 just use F-500 EA, which is excellent on Class A, B and D fires.

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.

Take a look at this short video.

Mitigating Highway Fuel Spills The Smart Way


Everyone knows F-500 Encapsulator Agent can quickly extinguish three-dimensional fires, Class A, B and even Class D fires, and can render gasoline and diesel fuel nonflammable, but what about polar solvents, like ethanol?   In this video, the firefighter takes E85, which is available for Flex-Fuel Vehicles (FFV). E85 is 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. To completely neutralize E85, or any hydrocarbon, you simply need 1 part of F-500 EA and 40 parts of water to 8 parts of spilled fuel. So, 8 gallons of E85 spilled on the highway would require one gallon of F-500 EA and 40 gallons of water.

Flowing F-500 EA at 3% from a 95 gpm nozzle would neutralize eight gallons of E85 in less than 25 seconds.
