Hi!
From The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language:

halon

Any of several halocarbons used as fire-extinguishing agents.

Eurodicatom:

Halón (spanish)

So I would use "halón".

halón


Explanation:
El término proviene de "HALogenated hydrocarbON", sin embargo en español se traduce simplemente como halón. Algunos halones son los causantes de la destrucción de la capa de ozono por lo que tienden a reemplazarse. Mucha suerte. GFS.
