WHAT IS FM-200™?

FM-200™ (HFC-227ea) is formed from the elements carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3-heptafluoropropane). The primary extinguishing mechanism of FM-200™ is heat absorption, with a secondary chemical contribution from the thermal decomposition of FM-200™ in the flame.

FM-200™ fire suppressant (HFC-227ea) can be safely used where people are present.

When used at standard design concentrations, it is safe for occupied spaces. FM-200™ leaves no residue. Most common metals, such as aluminum, brass, steel, cast iron, lead, stainless steel, and copper, as well as rubber, plastic, and electronic components, are unaffected when exposed to FM-200™ (HFC-227ea).
