FM 200 uses an agent called heptafluoropropane, a compound containing hydrogen, carbon and fluorine that suppresses flames by absorbing the heat. This chemical compound is stored as a liquid and vaporizes as it is discharged, protecting any assets in the area from both fire and extinguishing agent damage.
