McDONNELL DOUGLAS BEGINS PROCUREMENT OF AMERICAN PACIFIC'S HALOTRON I

 LAS VEGAS, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- American Pacific Corp. (NASDAQ: APFC) today announced that McDonnell Douglas Corp. has committed to an initial purchase of 20,000 pounds of Halotron I. Halotron I, a fire suppression product developed and marketed by the company's Halotron Division, is listed by the EPA in its proposed SNAP (Significant New Alternatives Program) List as an acceptable replacement for ozone-depleting Halon 1211 in portable fire extinguishers and other streaming applications.
 McDonnell Douglas, an industry leader in technical and environmental innovation, will use Halotron as part of its aggressive program to reduce reliance on ozone-depleting substances.
 American Pacific's principal business activities consist of the production of chlorate and perchlorate chemicals, including chiefly ammonium perchlorate, the oxidizer utilized in composite solid rocket propellants employed in a large number of space and military systems; the design and manufacture of environmental protection products; and real estate development. The company is also at the forefront of two developing specialty chemical markets: the manufacture of sodium azide, principally used in automotive airbag systems, and the production of Halotron I and II as a replacement for ozone-depleting halons in fire extinguishment systems worldwide.
