A rare book. A painting by an Old-World master. An ancient tapestry. Fire is not the only threat to these irreplaceable items that you are responsible for protecting. The wrong choice of fire extinguishing agent can be as destructive as the fire itself. Water or chemical damage can add up to millions of dollars in restoration costs or result in the total destruction of these priceless treasures. That's why we've worked to develop a full range of DuPont clean agent fire extinguishants. They are safe for people, electrically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue. Protecting treasures for future generations to enjoy is what matters most--to us, and to you.
