F-500 Encapsulator Agent (EA)

The Quality Solution

ISO 9001 Registration

F-500 EA is manufactured in compliance with HCT’s ISO 9001 Quality System, which ensures customer and end user confidence in consistent, reproducible, traceable and reliable quality processes from production to shipment – 100% of the time.


When applying F-500 EA, no special equipment is required for fixed or hand-held systems.  F-500 EA is not corrosive to metal or rubber products and actually acts as a lubricant to firefighting equipment.

Nontoxic and Non-Skin Sensitizing

F-500 was found to be non-sensitizing when tested in accordance with OECD-406.


F-500 EA contains no ingredients reportable under Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) Title III, Section 313 of 40 CFR-372 or the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) as of July 1, 1995.  F-500 EA is discarded as nonhazardous waste under RCRA CFR261.

Fully Biodegradable

Testing shows that F-500 EA is 100% fully biodegradable.  As with any substance, care should be taken to prevent uncontrolled discharge from entering ground water, surface water or storm drains.  With advance notice, F-500 EA can be treated by local biological wastewater treatment plants.

The lower the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), the lower the demand for oxygen and the better for the aquatic ecosystem.  F-500’s BOD is 87% less and COD is 80% less than that of several AR-AFFF products.
