DuPont Launches FM-200® Falcon Customer Protection Program in the Middle East

Wilmington, Delaware, July 15, 2010

DuPont announced the launch of the FM-200® Falcon Customer Protection Program designed to help protect FM-200® customers in the Middle East region. The Falcon Customer Protection Program is a 20-year warranty program for DuPont customers and is currently available in Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Yemen.

A seminar led by Dr. Mark Robin, Senior Technical Services Consultant, Neil Roberts, Europe, Middle East and Africa [EMEA] Business Manager and Mohammed Shehabi, Middle East Regional Manager [ME], addressed clean agent market history and future trends, Halon replacement and clean agent comparisons, LEED Green Buildings, and HFC Usage and Emissions reports.

"We are very delighted to announce the Falcon Customer program as it solidifies the position of FM-200® as the agent of choice in the region. The seminars were very successful and well-attended, with over 350 attendees. DuPont FM-200® is the most specified Halon replacement agent worldwide, and its unique characteristics make it the most appropriate product for clean agent systems. DuPont confirms through its seminars its commitment to supporting regional Halon replacement initiatives and future clean agent requirements," said Mohammed Shehabi.

FM-200® is an important part of an environmentally responsible fire suppression solution. FM-200® systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. This results in less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business. DuPont™ FM-200® fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present.

The DuPont family of clean agent fire suppressants also includes FE-36™ portable fire extinguisher agent, which replaces Halon 1211 and provides maximum protection for people and assets at minimum impact to the environment. The range of DuPont Fire Extinguishants embody over 208 years of DuPont commitment to the safety of people, assets, and the environment.
