what is used for?
Heptafluoropropane is considered to be an ideal substitute for halon 1301 because of its high fire-extinguishing performance, low toxicity, no damage to the atmospheric ozone layer, and no pollution to the site of use. It has been included in the NFPA 2001 fire extinguishing supplies standard by the National Fire Protection Association. In addition, heptafluoropropane is also used as a refrigerant and a medical propellant.
Heptafluoropropane (HFC-227ea) is a colorless, almost odorless, non-conductive gas at normal temperature and pressure. Its density is about 6 times that of air. It is a colorless and transparent liquid under its own pressure. It is non-toxic, non-flammable and non-corrosive. Sexual, with good thermal and chemical stability.
