It has a relatively high boiling point of 93F(34C) and this makes it a suitable replacement for Halon, making it suitable for use in portable fire extinguishers, where the operator can apply the agent at extended distances. This is in contrast to other agents (HFC’s) that have lower boiling points and are therefore more gaseous, giving it a decided advantage. It has a marked environmental advantage over all other streaming agents, and does not contain any greenhouse gases or ozone depleting substances, having a low GWP and an extremely low ODP.
