|Title:||Compatibility of Halon Alternatives During Storage|
|Published:||August 21, 1994|
|Abstract:||A key facet of the evaluation of new fire suppressants is their behavior under pressure and at elevated temperature in a metal storage container with an elastomer seal. In this study, 13 candidate chemicals have been examines: C2F6, C3F8, C4F10, cyclo-C4F8, CH2F2, C2HF5, CH2F2(60%)/C2HF5(40%), C2H2F4, C3HF7, C3H2F6, CHF2Cl, C2HF4Cl, and NaHCO3. This paper presents the results of testing for thermal stability in the presence of various metals, corrosion of those metals, and effects on selected elastomers and lubricants.|
