After a difficult storage tank fire in San Paulo, Brazil in April, 2015, authorities were not impressed with firefighting foam’s performance. While researching new firefighting technologies, San Paulo decided to test F-500 Encapsulator Agent. This naptha/diesel fuel fire was extinguished in less than ten seconds.
F-500 EA extinguishes a fire in three ways. It encapsulates hydrocarbon fuel and vapors, rendering them nonflammable. It also rapidly cools the fuel and structure. If you remove the heat; you remove the fire. Finally, F-500 EA interrupts the free radical chain reaction, which virtually eliminates toxins in the smoke.
