It is an innovative technology of fire suppression developed for local suppression of fire at an early stage, directly in the place of inflammation.
Any form o of the technology “standby mode” and automatically extinguish fire in a place where it occurs, without letting it develop into a fire.
Today various composite materials have been created by ACT technology capable for suppressing fires. The structure of such materials includes microcapsules containing an extinguishing agent, blend of HFC & FIC- confined within. When heated to a preset temperature shell of capsule bursts discharging the extinguishing agent .
Extinguishing occurs due to chemical bonding of the radicals (H·, HO·, CHx·) – mediators of burning process and, correspondingly, breaking of the radical chain of burning process.
The technology of microencapsulation is well-known and widely used in many industries. ACTOK technology is the first ever example
of microencapsulation technique applied in the field of fire extinguishing.
Inside of all of the ACTOK based products there are tens of thousands of microcapsules that store fire extinguishing agent and insure fire suppression when the temperature they are designed for is reached. The polymeric shell of microcapsules retains the fire retardant compound in working order for many years and destructs strictly on reaching the set temperature, releasing fire suppression agent and making each individual microcapsule a micro stand alone fire suppression device.
