Abstract:

The objective of the overall effort is to originate concepts for a next-generation suppressant for multidimensional fires. The objective of the Phase IV effort was to provide a foundation for the development of an agent to substitute for Halon 1211 Air Force firefighting training. Toxicity and environmental data on selected candidate training agents were surveyed and compiled. Hydrochlorofluorocarbons HCFCs, chlorofluorocarbons CFCs, and blends of these materials were tested on small-scale through medium-scale replacement for Halon 1211 in firefighting training.
