F-500 Encapsulator Technology

Initially named Fuelbuster and developed to make the hydrocarbons spilled into the environment 100% biodegradable, the F-500EA has proven to be an extremely effective solution for the control of fires, vapors and contaminants. Environmentally friendly No toxic PFOS PFOA or Fluorinated ingredients, Noncorrosive-Neutral PH 7.1, with minimum of 15 years guaranteed shelves life.

With more than 23 years of existence and used worldwide, the F-500EA acts on all fire classes -A - B- -C (High voltage transformers) -D (magnesium titanium aluminum) -K, even Lithium-ion batteries.

Reduces smoke toxins, stops chemical chain reaction, cools 318% more than water reducing required quantity by 68% & makes liquids and gases incombustible when encapsulated.

Engineers familiar with NFPA 18A Standard on Water Additives for Fire Control and Vapor Mitigation, more specifically section 7.7 which demonstrates the skill that a F-500EA solution render hydrocarbon fuel nonflammable through emulsification strongly recommend it and is required more and more by large industrial risks insurers.

The most economical innovative solution to modern fire problems and risks. Portable and wheeled fire extinguishers, fire cabinets, fire trucks, and perfectly suited to automatic sprinkler systems.
