It is innovative technology of fire suppression developed for local suppression of fire at an early stage, directly in the place of inflammation.
AСTOK technology is simple for understanding and innovative by essence:
A device of any form and size made by this technology can remain for many years in “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 AСTOK technology capable of suppressing fire. The structure of such materials includes microcapsules with fire retardant agent - freon - confined within. When heated to a preset temperature shell of capsule bursts discharging freon. When Freon is in contact with open fire or smoldering surface, freon binds and displaces oxygen, swiftly cools the place of burning and thus quickly and effectively extinguishes the inflammation.
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.
AСTOK technology allows creation of highly effective multi-purpose stand-alone fire extinguishing compounds and materials. Fire extinguishing paints, powders, foams, adhesive elastic plates and tapes, solid and plastic multi layer composites made using AСTOK technology applied in many industries worldwide.
Any product or a composite material created with application of ACTOK technology represents a technological breakthrough unmatched in world practice of fire suppression.
