We offer clean agent fire suppression systems using 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. A fluoroketone, it’s environmentally sustainable and fast-acting, reaching design concentration for total flooding applications in 10 seconds or less and extinguishing fires at the incipient stage. 3M Novec 1230 fluid is used globally in more than 50,000 special hazard fire suppression applications ranging from data centers to military operations to archival storage facilities. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable Halon 1301 replacement and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) alternative. Not only does it have more than 99.9% lower global warming potential than any halocarbon agent accepted for use in occupied spaces, but 3M also offers its 20-year Blue Sky Warranty to help protect system owners from regulatory risk of phasedown or phaseout.

3M Novec 1230 fluid is waterless and discharged as a gas, making it ideal to extinguish fires in spaces where electronics or irreplaceable, mission critical assets are stored or where continuity of operations is crucial. It has the highest margin of occupant safety of any NFPA 2001 clean agent and evaporates quickly, leaving no residue. In addition, it is electrically non-conductive, designed for applications where energized circuits and electronic systems cannot be shut down during an emergency. 3M Novec 1230 fluid is transported and stored as a liquid in non DOT-rated containers that can be shipped overnight by air. Cylinders may be placed in the protected room or remotely, giving facility owners additional options in spaces with infrastructure limitations. 3M manufactures 3M Novec 1230 fluid in the USA using globally sourced materials.
