F500 Encapsulator Agent / Pinnacle Class A Foam

Hazard Control Technologies - F 500

F-500 is a Micelle Encapsulator Fire Suppression Agent. F-500 is a multi-purpose agent used worldwide for various applications. The fire suppression mechanics and technology utilized by F-500 are vastly different than conventional foam. F-500 forms and maintains micelles, "chemical cocoons," around the hydrocarbon fuel neutralizing the fuel leg of the fire tetrahedron rather than forming a blanket depriving the fire of oxygen.

F-500 Encapsulator Agent

F-500 Encapsulator Agent has been proven in the field and tested by numerous certification and regulatory agencies around the world. F-500 Encapsulator Agent currently holds approvals, certifications, listings, and classification; cULus Classification, MPA Dresden Approval, Italian Encapsulator Agent Certification, China Type Approval, RINA Approval, ABS Approval, Lloyds Approval, and others for various Class A, Class B, and Class D fire suppression applications.

Typical application rates depending on testing agency, test protocols, and application are:

Class A: 0.25% - 1%
Class B: 1% - 6%
Class D: 1% - 3%

In addition to fire suppression approvals, F-500 Encapsulator Agent holds various environmental approvals and listings.

Some of the features and benefits of F-500 Multipurpose Agent are:

  • Is nontoxic, non-corrosive, fully biodegradable
  • Is an effective firefighting agent for Class A and Class B fires
  • Has no blanket to break as with foam
  • Can be used through existing equipment via proportioning, eduction, or can be pre-mixed and delivered through a standard fire hose
  • Can be pre-mixed and applied using a 2.5-gallon pressurized water extinguisher
  • Utilizes new micelle encapsulator technology to eliminate the combustibility of the fuel leg of the fire tetrahedron. By removing the fuel leg of the fire tetrahedron, F-500 can effectively eliminate the danger created by the spill of Class B liquids.
  • Significantly reduces heat and interrupts the free radical chain reaction For flammable material spills, where an ignition source could lead to fire if the fuel is not neutralized, F-500 is a superior spill control agent.

Pinnacle Class A Foam

Class A fires are ordinary combustible materials including paper, wood, cloth and other building materials. Fire fighters today face more Class A fires than they do Class B, C or D. Simple water attacks alone are often ineffective because the water runs off or instantly converts to steam before it can extinguish the flames. Pinnacle Class A Foam forms a thick foam blanket, delivering fire fighting performance where you need it most, the fuel source.
