Abstract
The search for replacements for ozone-depleting Halon fire extinguishing agents has been underway for nearly ten years. Many potential replacement agents have been underway for nearly ten years. Many potential replacement agents have been considered, evaluated and tested over the years, yet, there has yet to be a suitable replacement develop[ed of Mainstream's secondgeneration Halon replacements. Mainstream has successfully developed three Halon replacement agents with performance comparable to the existing Halons without the atmospheric reactivity. These compounds were found to be highly efficient, nontoxic, and environmentally-friendly. Phase will focus on medium-scale extinguishment tests of these agents on various fuel types, including jet fuel and hydraulic fluid, as well as other flammable liquids of importance.
