In fire fighting, every second counts.

In industrial fires, response time is key, but getting there quickly isn’t always enough. For safer, more effective fire suppression, reducing the risk of burn-back is critical. Fire fighting foams made with DuPont™ Capstone® fluorosurfactants and DuPont™ Forafac® fluorosurfactants help to quickly extinguish fires and reduce burn-back time on all types of polar liquid and hydrocarbon fires.

DuPont offers Capstone® and Forafac® fluorosurfactant additives to fill the needs of a broad range of industrial fire-fighting and fire-suppression applications — including oil, chemical, marine and aviation fire fighting foams, for example. Our additives are also compatible in formulation with a variety of surfactants, to meet your specifications. A leader in the science of fire suppression since 1975, DuPont is committed to developing safe, reliable products that improve performance. DuPont™ Capstone® and Forafac® fluorosurfactants meet regulatory guidelines wherever they are sold.
