    Abstract

    This specification covers the requirements for Halon 1211 as a fire-fighting medium. There are a number of limitations to this specification, such as the fire-fighting equipment or hardware that require the use of Halon 1211 and the storage or transportation of Halon 1211. Due to these limitations in this specification, storage, handling, and transportation issues may be addressed in future ASTM standards.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the requirements for Halon 1211 as a fire-fighting medium.

    1.2 This specification does not address the fire-fighting equipment or hardware that employs Halon 1211 or the conditions of employing such equipment (for example, handhelds, fixed installations, etc.).

    1.3 This specification does not address the storage or transportation of Halon 1211. Storage, handling, and transportation issues may be addressed in future ASTM standards.

    1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 6, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazards statements are given in Section 4.
