3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

The new world standard for sustainable clean agent fire protection.

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is a next-generation halon alternative designed to balance industry concerns for performance, human safety and the environment, which makes Novec 1230 fluid the first option to non-sustainable technologies:

  • Zero ozone depletion potential
  • 5-day atmospheric lifetime
  • A global warming potential of 1

Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is based on a proprietary chemistry from 3M called C6-fluoroketone; it is also known as dodecafluoro 2-methylpentane-3-one; its ASHRAE nomenclature is FK 5-1-12 — the way it is designated in NFPA 2001 and ISO 14520 clean agent standards. It is based on sustainable technology, designed to balance industry concerns for human safety, performance, and the environment. This unique agent is an advanced replacement for halon and first generation halon alternatives.

With zero ozone depletion potential, extremely low global warming potential and short atmospheric lifetime, Novec 1230 fluid is the first halon replacement to offer a viable, long-term, sustainable technology for special hazards fire protection.
