F-500 EA®

Encapsulator Technology

F-500 Encapsulator
Agent is the answer to
today’s growing fire

Encapsulator Agents are the perfect solution for a wide variety of fire hazards, including three-dimensional fires and energized environments that require a specialized fire suppression approach. F-500 Encapsulator Agent suppression system works on all four legs of the fire tetrahedron simultaneously, ensuring that business owners and fire service professionals have a reliable fire suppressant.

Hazard Control Technologies' F-500 EA.

5-Gallon Pails

A convenient option for local fire departments and newer F-500 EA® users.

55-Gallon Drums

An economical option for filling F-500 EA® powered industrial equipment.

250-Gallon Totes

A premier option for proportioning F-500 EA® into your fixed system.


Multi-class Mitigation

Materials like flammable metals, lithium-ion batteries, and synthetic fabrics have become commonplace in the home, at work, and in industrial facilities, challenging traditional fire suppression and detection systems. F-500 Encapsulator Agent, our flagship fire suppression agent, offers unparalleled features that give your team the ability to safely mitigate these difficult-to-extinguish fire hazards.


The Eco-friendly Solution

For those concerned about environmental compliance, F-500 EA® does not contain any fluorinated active ingredients reportable under the Superfund Amendments, Re-authorization Act (SARA) Title III, Section 313, or Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation Liability Act (CERCLA). It can be discarded as a non-hazardous waste under RCRA CFR261.

F-500 Encapsulator Agent is not a foam. While a traditional foam system works on a mechanical level, Encapsulator Agents work on a chemical molecular level, changing the composition of a plain water droplet. There are different types of systems for suppressing different types of fires, but F-500 EA® ensures a comprehensive approach to target the affected area efficiently and correctly.

NFPA 18A SEC 7.7

Spherical Micelle Stability Testing

“This section covers the test procedures to evaluate the ability of a water additive solution to form and maintain stable spherical micelles capable of encapsulating combustible and flammable liquids (polar and non-polar), rendering the flammable liquids nonflammable, nonignitable and nonexplosive and maintaining that encapsulation in the presence of high heat over an extended period of time.”

NFPA 18A ANX 4.3

Lithium-ion Battery Fire Testing

“Encapsulator Agents (Sec. 7.7) have been tested extensively by third-party testing organizations. This testing has been controlled, scientific and highly instrumented, documenting fire suppression, control and elimination of thermal runaway and encapsulation of both flammable electrolyte and other explosive off-gases, rendering them nonexplosive. Encapsulator Technology reduces the toxicity of HF gas.”

Fire Chemistry

The science behind
F-500 Encapsulator Agent
and innovative Encapsulator

Beyond traditional fire sprinkler systems, Encapsulator Agents bring several unique features to the table. Beginning as a singular molecule with a polar head and non-polar tail, the addition of F-500 EA® concentrate is designed to enhance efficiency and expand your fire suppression capabilities. F-500 EA® is compatible with leading sprinkler head systems and deluge systems.

F-500 EA® Features

F-500 Encapsulator
Agent offers countless
benefits as a result of four
main unique features

These unique features make Encapsulator Agents the most versatile agents available today. Whether you’re manually applying solution to a fire using our signature F-500 EA® TKO Nozzle or proportioning concentrate into your water stream using our state-of-the-art Diamond Doser® fire suppression system, Encapsulator Technology can increase safety and limit potential damages.

Feature 1


Encapsulation of polar and non-polar fuels provided by F-500 EA® reduces the risk of re-ignition in the form of stable and long-term burn back resistance.


  • Expand Hazard Mitigation Capabilities
  • Establish Confident Incident Response
  • Experience Long-term Stable Burn Back Resistance
  • Prevent Re-ignition

Feature 2

Rapid Heat Reduction

F-500 EA® molecules form an outer layer of agent on each droplet. This drives heat internally where micro spherical micelles rapidly absorb thermal energy.


  • Expand Rapid Knockdown Capabilities
  • Improve Droplet Utilization
  • Prevent Scalding Steam and Excess Runoff
  • Decrease Time, Resources, and Exposure

Feature 3

Free Radical Interruption

F-500 EA® proactively reduces the concentration of harmful hydrocarbons present in smoke and soot by interrupting the free radical chain reaction.


  • Reduce Carcinogenic Toxin Concentration
  • Promote Department and Employee Health
  • Improve Visibility and Air Quality
  • Reduce Environmental Contamination

Feature 4


F-500 EA® is a fluorine free, noncorrosive, and biodegradable solution capable of extinguishing three-dimensional multi-class hazards.


  • Improve Community Health
  • Prevent Hazardous and Costly Cleanup
  • Reduce Environmental Contamination
  • Avoid Machinery Deterioration
