FM-200® is a colorless, non-toxic gas perfectly suited to protect high value assets in areas that may be normally occupied, in locations where clean-up of other agents is problematic, when storage space for a fire suppression agent is restricted, or when an electrically non-conductive agent is required.
FM-200 fire extinguishing systems are designed to be discharged within 10 seconds into a room, area, or enclosure with the structural integrity to retain the agent.
FM-200 (HFC-227ea) is formed from the elements carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3 – heptafluoropropane). The primary extinguishing mechanism of FM-200 is heat absorption, with a secondary chemical contribution from the thermal decomposition of FM-200 in the flame.
FM-200 leaves no residue and is safe for use in occupied spaces.
