    Subject: Halotron as a viable replacement for Halon?

    The university is springing for some replacement hand-held fire
    extinguishers, and we've been offered the choice of Halotron I

    Apparently Halotron is a "greener" replacement chemical agent
    for Halon. Roughly the same functionality, but better
    production/atmospheric properties. I've done some looking on
    commercial sites (some listed below) and on the very informative
    Halon Alternatives Research Corporation web site
    <URL:>, and Halotron seems on first glance to
    be a viable replacement. (And I've checked the listserv

    Has anyone had first-hand experience with Halotron I or II
