Fire fighting agents

FK 5-1-12 (Fluorinated ketone)

Synonyms: 3M™, Novec™ 1230, Fire Protection Fluid, perfluoro(2-methyl-3-pentanone), heptafluoroisopropyl pentafluoroethyl ketone

CAS № 756-13-8

Molecular formula: C6F12O

FK 5-1-12 fluid is a high molecular weight material, compared with the first generation halocarbon clean agents. The product has a heat of vaporization of 88.1 kJ/kg and low vapor pressure. Although it is a liquid at room temperature. It gasifies immediately after being discharged in a total flooding system. The product is ideal for use in total flooding applications, localized flooding systems, directional spray type applications and may be used in portable extinguishers for special use. In addition, FK 5-1-12 fluid also uses in pump applications because it is a liquid to the conventional methods of super-pressurization using nitrogen.

Physical Properties:

Molar mass g/mol-1 316.04
Boiling Point  °C 49
Melting Point °C -108
Density g/cm3 1.723


1. FK 5-1-12 fluid is a highly efficient fire extinguishing that can be used for flooding applications in engineered and pre-engineered systems.

2. It is efficiency for using in special rooms with high-value equipments. There are telecommunication switch rooms, computer and electronic control rooms. It is also ideal for environments such as libraries, cultural facilities, storage rooms, archives and museums.
