This project has developed measurement methods and
provided data for the appraisal of 12 USAF-specified
candidate halon 1301 replacements for compatibility with
flight systems, people, and the environment. The
exposures of metals, elastomers and lubricants involve
an initial temperature and pressure of 298 K (77 deg F)
and 4.1 MPa (600 psi), with a final temperature of 422 K
(300 deg F). These data and those from the companion
project, "Agent Screening for Halon 1301 Aviation
Replacement," will enable the selection by September 30,
1993 of 3 of the chemicals for full-scale testing by the
Air Force. Longer-term testing will then be commenced
to increase confidence in the preliminary results for
materials compatibility. A final report will be
delivered by September 30, 1995.
