Novec 1230 Fire Protection
Fluid - an agent that volatizes readily to provide rapid fire suppression for occupied
spaces, while achieving an excellent environmental profile:
• Very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of just one
• Atmospheric lifetime of about 5 days
• Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) of zero
The addition of Novec 1230 fluid and Argonite inert gas suppression systems enables
Gielle to provide you with a full array of sustainable fire suppression systems for
all your needs today and into the future.
Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid offers a number of unique advantages for protecting records stored on various electronic media; paper documents; archival film and video; fine arts, antiques and other valuable - and often irreplaceable — items which are vulnerable to conventional water, foam and dry chemical extinguishing agents.
Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is ideal for the protection of valuable archives and museum articles:
Evaporates cleanly and completely during discharge
Leaves no residue to clean up
Non-corrosive, since it has no solvency
Non-reactive with paper, canvas or other such materials, nor is it reactive with that which is printed, drawn, painted or written on such materials
Just as important is Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid's low toxicity and wide margin of safety. This is a particular concern in document storage areas and vaults that are normally occupied. With CO2 and many conventional halon replacements, the level of agent needed to extinguish a fire can be lethal to humans. The wide margin between Novec 1230 fluid's use concentration and "No Observed Adverse Effects Level" gives occupants more time to evacuate the area after a system discharge.
Five-day atmospheric lifetime
Global Warming Potential of 1
This environmental profile is unmatched by any other halogenated agent, and helps make Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid today's long-term solution for protecting highly valuable, often irreplaceable, assets
