F- 500 Multipurpose Fire Suppression Agent's engineered advantage combines the benefits of a wetting agent (I.e., surface tension reduction, rapid spread, penetration capability) with Micelle Encapsulator Technology. The traditional approaches of the fire suppression eliminate heat through steam conversion (plain water) or eliminate the oxygen leg of the fire tetrahedron and temporarily mask vapors through the formation and maintenance of a foam blanket (Class A and class B foam). In contrast, F-500's amphipathic molecular design is the foundation of F-500's fire suppression mechanics that simultaneously acts upon the heat, fuel, and free radical legs of the fire tetrahedron.
F-500 is environmentally safe, nontoxic, non-corrosive, 100% biodegradable, and requires no specialized equipment, thus make it the clear choice for fire and flammable liquid spill control. F-500 Certfications and Listings:

F-500 has been examined at 1%, 3% and 6% to both the united states and Canadian UL standards for both Class A and Class B applications and found to comply with the applicable requirements in the Standard for Foam equipment and Liquid Concentrates, UL 162 and the NFPA standard foe wetting Agents, NFPA18.
