Hong Kong SAR, June 3, 2021 – Topcast Aviation Supplies Co., Ltd. (“Topcast”) and H3R Aviation, Inc. signed a distribution agreement in May 2021, offering effective aircraft fire extinguishing agents worldwide.

The use of halon fire extinguishers is addressed in the FAA Advisory Circular 120-80, and stresses the effectiveness of Halon, when fighting an in-flight fire.
H3R Aviation fire extinguishers include Halon 1211, Halotron® 1, Halotron BrX® and FM-200® hand portable units, and Halon 1211, Halotron® 1 and Novec(TM) 1230 wheeled extinguishers that meet DOT requirements and comply with FAA and/or National Fire Protection Association recommendations.
Larry Levine, Director of Business Development (America) of Topcast said, “We are pleased to partner with H3R to elevate inflight safety to mitigate the risk of equipment fires.”
