3M™ Novec™ 1230 is a halogenated clean agent for applications where water-based fire suppression could damage sensitive equipment/property. A clean agent, sometimes referred to as “waterless fire extinguishing agent”, is formally defined by the 2022 edition of NFPA 2001, the Standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems, as a “volatile or gaseous fire extinguishant that is electrically nonconducting and that does not leave a residue upon evaporation” (3.3.7).

NFPA 2001 requires each batch of recycled agent be tested for quality to ensure it remains safe for both the people and property it protects.
