Abstract:

A comparison of two smokescreen compositions, Dechlorane and hexachloroethane, was made with respect to smoke volume, burning time, storage stability, and toxicity. The smoke volume and burning time of the Dechlorane composition are comparable to HC compositions. Its storage stability is superior to standard HC compositions. No significant difference in relative toxicity between the smoke clouds from the two compositions was found both smokes produce chronic pathological degenerati n of tissues of the respiratory system
