What is “Encapsulator Technology?”

F-500 encapsulator agent (EA) is an EPA approved agent used in many other industry application such at fire fighting, environmental cleaning, automotive, marine, etc. F-500 EA has a large, amphipathic molecule, meaning it has a polar head that is attracted to water and a nonpolar tail that is attracted to hydrocarbons.

When the F-500 EA nonpolar tails protruding from the droplets find hydrocarbon vapors or liquid, they attach themselves, forming micelles or “chemical cocoons” around the hydrocarbon molecules. 

The third and fourth layer of the Letus Survival mask is treated with F-500 EA. When the user wear the mask, this layer is activated by the vapor from breathing. The water molecule combined with F-500 EA then form the micelles around the invading particles.
