Fire suppressants are used as part of our everyday lives due to their ability to safeguard life and property. Until recently halons and other ozone depleting substances were commonly used, but for many ground based applications these have now been replaced. However, in aeronautics the challenge to identify suitable replacements for some applications has been difficult, particularly in relation to cargo hold protection. The following article will discuss the history of halon use and withdrawal, and the challenges we are facing to develop new aeronautical fire suppression systems.
