102. Executive Summary (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: Bromotrifluoromethane (halon 1301 or CF3Br) has been the fire-fighting agent of choice for decades to protect inaccessible spaces aboard aircraft in flight because of its inherent ability to inhibit combustion while possessing a high liquid density a ...

103. Introduction (NIST SP 861)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 861
Published: 4/1/1994
Authors: William L Grosshandler, Richard George Gann, William M Pitts
Abstract: The Montreal Protocol of 1987 identified halon 1301 (CF3Br) as one of a number of halogenated chemicals that were sufficiently deleterious to stratospheric ozone that their continued production and use required limitation. An amendment to the Protoco ...
