Despite all the precautions taken to protect the highly sensitive equipment and instruments within a semiconductor facility, it doesn't take much to severely damage them. Even a small amount of smoke, fire, water or vapor can halt business and shut down a facility. With the trend of continuing miniaturization, the risks of fire to a semiconductor facility are exceptionally high. Your fire suppression system must offer superior performance to ensure that a potential fire is detected before it can even start.
Water can cause more damage to high-value equipment than an actual fire and can add cost and extensive cleanup time. The FE family of fire extinguishants provides an exceptional alternative to Halon. They are safe for people, electronically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue.
Conducting business as usual is what matters most--to you and to us.

DuPont™ FM-200® is the leading chemical agent replacement. Designed to flood an enclosure, DuPont™ FM-200® should be used where agents such as water, dry chemical and carbon dioxide are unacceptable because they cause damage to electronic equipment or present a safety risk to people. Operations can resume as soon as fire damage is repaired allowing for minimal business interruption.

In a portable fire extinguisher, DuPont™ FE-36™ is discharged as a stream of gas and liquid droplets that ceases the combustion process through heat absorption and chemical interaction. Portable fire extinguishers containing DuPont™ FE-36™ are best to protect computer rooms. DuPont™ FE-36™ is also used in applications as a small self-contained total flooding unit. It is suited for electronic vaults and precious item storage vaults.
