Brominated fire suppressants are effective and widely
used. Due to their destruction of stratospheric ozone,
however, the production of these chemical was halted in
January 1994. Although testing and development of
possible substitutes is occurring, a replacement with
all of the desirable properties of CF3Br (the most
common fire suppressant) has yet to be identified.
Consequently, the Fire Science Division at the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is
conducting research to identify new chemical inhibitors,
understand the mechanisms of inhibition of known or
widely used agents, and evaluate the performance of
