F-500 Micelle Encapsulator Fire Suppression Agent

F-500 is a specially engineered chemical that is used for a wide variety of fire suppression, vapor suppression, and bioremediation applications. Below are some of the features and benefits that F-500 provides the end user.

Key Features and Benefits

Feature   Benefit
Fast Extinguishment  
Saves lives (victims and firefighters)
Less property damage
Reduces insurance claim amounts and premiums
Reduced Surface Tension  
Provides greater surface coverage and deeper penetration into pores of Class A materials
Facilitates spreading of F-500 molecules in Class B materials
Rapid Heat Reduction  
Fast extinguishment of Class A and Class B fuels
Firefighter can approach fire more safely
Reduces threat of spontaneous reignition
Reduces combustion threat of surrounding infrastructure
Enhanced Burnback Resistance  
When F-500 and water are applied at the proper rates, firefighters can walk through fuel with no threat of reignition
Penetration of F-500 into pores of Class A materials severely inhibits the fire from restarting
Increased Visibility

Can pre-mix F-500 into booster tanks without worrying about corrosion of pumps or plumbing
Non-Hazardous  
Reduced risk to emergency response personnel
Reduced risk to the environment
Biodegradable  
Reduced risk to the environment
Vapor Suppression (reduces vapors below the Lower Explosive Limit)  
Eliminates the risk of explosion by sparks from extrication equipment
Safer highway fuel spills
Reduces explosive vapors in confined space
Faster Tank Degassing / Tank Turnaround
Bioremediation Aid  
Speeds breakdown of hydrocarbons by increasing the surface area allowing naturally occurring microorganisms to digest the hydrocarbons
Reduces toxicity level of hydrocarbons
Manufactured under ISO 9001 Accredited Quality Management System
