Fluorinated gases (‘F-gases’) are a family of man-made gases used in a range of industrial applications. Because they do not damage the atmospheric ozone layer, they are often used as substitutes for ozone-depleting substances. However, F-gases are powerful greenhouse gases, with a global warming effect up to 23,000 times greater than carbon dioxide (CO2), and their emissions are rising rapidly.
FirePro Condensed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing units do not contain any harmful chemical substances e.g. Sulphur Hexafluoride SF6, Hydrofluorocarbons such as HCFC, HFCs (23, 32, 41, 43-10mee, 125, 134, 134a, 152a, 143, 143a, 227ea, 236cb, 236ea, 236fa, 245ca, 365mfc) and Perfluorocarbons PFCs, which are banned or in the process of being banned according to the regulation (EC) No 842/2006 of the European parliament and of the Council, due to their negative impact on the environment.
