HBFO-1233XFB AS A FIRE EXTINGUISHER AGENT

30.04.2016

A new fluoro-olefin, HBFO-1233xfB (CF3CBr=CH2 or 2-bromo-3,3,3-trifluoropropene, shortened as 2-BTP), has been proposed by the US EPA as a drop-in replacement for Halon 1211 Fire extinguishing agent on aircrafts, based on its calculated GWP of 0.23-0.26.

The EPA is proposing 2-BTP on aircraft, acceptable as a total flooding agent as a streaming agent for use in handheld extinguishers. Other additional potential fire suppression applications for 2-BTP could be envisaged.
