  • DSPA has been included into the “SNAP Listing” by EPA

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with this list:

    Fire suppression and explosion protection have used halons in many applications because they are electrically non-conductive, dissipate rapidly without residue, are safe for limited human exposure, and are extremely efficient in extinguishing most types of fires. Because of their strong ozone depletion potential, the Montreal Protocol required the earliest production and import phaseout of halons in the U.S. in 1994.”

    “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program implements section 612 of the amended Clean Air Act of 1990, which requires EPA to evaluate substitutes for the ozone-depleting substances to reduce overall risk to human health and the environment. Through these evaluations, SNAP generates lists of acceptable and unacceptable substitutes for each of the major industrial use sectors. The intended effect of the SNAP program is to promote a safe, smooth transition away from ozone depleting compounds to the available substitutes.”

    Once more this proves DSPA to be environmentally friendly and safe for humans and animals. We advise all our distributors to use this listing for their benefit while offering our products to end users and installers.
