    Subject:      Fire Protection (Halon Substitute)

    Dupont is indeed working on an alternative to Halon 1301.  In fact
    it is working on several alternatives as Halon 1301 has several
    applications.  The alternative for room protection systems such as
    libraries use (as opposed to portable units) is called the "total
    flooding alternative" and has a working title of FE 25.  [FE = Fire
    Extinguisher; a name contest is in order]

    FE 25 is thought to be about three years from the market.  Questions
    about the compatibility of FE25 with present systems cannot be
    answered definitively at this time, but the matter is obviously a
    concern of the developer.
