FK-5-1-12: a new extinguishing agent with a GWP < 1

FK-5-1-12 is a UL Recognised inhibitor gas (EX16326) used for fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems.



FK-5-1-12 is a fluorinated ketone, that meets F-Gas regulations with a GWP of less than 1, making it an ideal choice for its buyers and for the planet in the long term.

Non-flammable, it offers many possibilities for use in formulations that require safety requirements (regulatory, hazardous environment, confined environment). Its implementation does not require any particular investment in safety installations (ATEX).

It is effective in the most sensitive environments, such as data centres, banks, hospitals and museums, where valuable assets could be damaged by the spray of a water-based extinguisher.

FK-5-1-12 FK-5-1-12 leaves no residue on equipment and has a high dielectric strength. With the gradual reduction of HFCs on the market, this extinguishing agent is a perfect replacement for R-227ea, considerably reducing its impact on global warming.


Available in 210 litre drums !
