An Encapsulator Agent’s unique ability to encapsulate polar and non-polar fuels, drastically reducing the risk of re-ignition, provides unprecedented burn back resistance. This is referenced in NFPA 18A, Section 7.7, Spherical Micelle Stability Test.
Encapsulator Agent droplets create a thermal circuit, forming an outer layer of agent “skin” on each droplet. This drives heat into the internal portion of the droplet where fuel is cooled rapidly without the generation of scalding steam.
In addition to encapsulating fuels, Encapsulator Agents also encapsulate harmful carbons and hydrocarbons, absorbing free radical energy and improving air quality and visibility in the process. Encapsulator Agents halt the production of carcinogens, showing a drastic decrease in cancer-causing toxins in soot and smoke.
Encapsulator Agents are fluorine free, biodegradable and noncorrosive. As the global PFOA/PFAS crisis comes to a head, the world is seeking an eco-friendly solution capable of extinguishing a large variety of fires without the use of harmful chemicals.
