ACT NANO TECHNOLOGY
ACT technology was designed to automatically stop fires at source by using Nano Physics.
This new innovation is scientifically brilliant yet in practice is a simple and effective way of protecting the asset.
The uses of the PyroCord and PyroSticker are infinite.
They can simply be placed anywhere where there is an IP 20 or above rating enclosure
Totally flooded system.
The product can remain inactive for up to 5 years from manufacture but remains in standby mode until a predetermined temperature is reached and the sticker 120oC the cord 160oC will automatically extinguish the flame. This fire will not reignite.
Today various composite materials have been created by AСT technology capable of suppressing fires. The structure of such materials includes microcapsules with fire retardant agent – Novec 1230 confined inside.
When heated to a preset temperature, the shell of capsule bursts, discharging the extinguishing agent. Extinguishing occurs immediately, as the radical chain of the burning process break and instantaneously stop the fire.
The technology of microencapsulation is well-known and widely used in many industries. ACT technology is the first ever example of microencapsulation technique applied in the field of fire extinguishing.
Inside of all of the ACT based products there are tens of thousands of microcapsules that store fire extinguishing agent and ensure 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.
AСT technology allows creation of highly effective multi-purpose stand alone fire extinguishing compounds and materials. Fire extinguishing sticker and cord composites made using AСT technology applied in many industries worldwide.
Any product or a composite material created with application of ACT technology represents a technological breakthrough unmatched in world practice of fire suppression.
The breakdown voltage of Novec 1230 fluid is 48kv, therefore the Patch and Cord can be used in LV and MV systems upto 33kv.
