Novec’s 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is an advanced halon and CO2 replacement, offering a number of advantages over other clean agents and CO2 in marine applications.
Based on 3M proprietary chemistry, its low acute toxic- ity, combined with high extinguishing ef? ciency, gives
Novec 1230 ? uid a wide safety margin – even at rela- tively high extinguishing concentrations, making it ideal for occupied spaces, including engine and pump rooms. www.3m.com
Trelleborg’s newest offerings include Vikotherm, made from non-syntactic silicone and can be cured at room temperature without exposure to air, making it resistant to cracking and shrinking. Vikotherm R2 offers improved elasticity, as well as enhanced process and manufactur- ing ? exibility. Using Trelleborg’s Mobile Production
Unit (MPU), the system can be applied on site, anywhere around the world. www.trelleborg.com/offshore www.marinelink.com 55
