How Cooling with F500 EA Extinguishes Fires

The Importance of Cooling to Extinguish a Fire

You may think water does a great job of cooling a fire, but water does not cool efficiently and creates a lot of dangerous steam. Foams are designed to form a blanket to separate the fuel from the oxygen, but foam traps in the heat, often resulting in reignition.

There is one, unique solution – F-500 Encapsulator Agent.

Just 1-3% F-500 EA changes the cooling mechanism of water from steam conversion to thermal conveyance. This means there is no scalding steam, just a warm vapor. F-500 EA also greatly reduces smoke, increasing visibility and removing up to 98% of the cancer-causing toxins.

With its ability to extinguish fires three ways; removing the heat, encapsulating fuels and interrupting the free radical chain reaction, F-500 Encapsulator Agent is well-suited to Class A, Class B polar and nonpolar, Class D and three-dimensional fires, and is the only agent recommended by multiple organizations for lithium-ion battery fires and transformer fires.

Watch the video to see how F-500 EA extinguishes a fire without touching the flames. By simply removing the heat, F-500 EA rapidly extinguishes the fire.  Remove the heat; remove the fire!
