Novec 1230 is almost water. They tell me that the damage from a fire comes in thirds. One-third from the fire, one-third from the smoke, one-third from the water. Novec 1230 is a water-looking liquid at room temperature that doesn’t damage electronic equipment (or hardly anything else) while putting out fires.
Sure iPods and XBOXes are cool, but I’m more interested in living in a future where buildings don’t burn down.
