DuPont™ Capstone® 1470 Fire Fighting Foam
Synthetic firefighting foams made with DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 aid in extinguishing fires quickly, which helps to protect assets and personnel. Rated as nonflammable and non-hazardous according to the Global Harmonized System (GHS), Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 is easier to use and store than many other additives, making it ideal for use in developing concentrated formulations.
Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 is a safe and highly effective film-forming agent that provides superior burn-back resistance against non-polar and polar liquid fires. The product features an enhanced ability to both reduce the surface tension of aqueous solutions and create a thin layer of water between the foam and the fuel.
In addition to equipping firefighters to effectively combat Class B fires, Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 is part of the Capstone® fluorosurfactant portfolio based on short-chain chemistry that provides more sustainable solutions with maximum performance.
Extensive environmental, health and safety testing, conducted as part of the formal DuPont Product Stewardship program, provides data demonstrating that Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 is safe for people and the environment.
Capstone® fluorosurfactant 1470 is suitable for use in alcohol-resistant foams (AFFF-AR/FFFP-AR) and aqueous film-forming foams (AFFF).
