Opteon SF79 represents a safe alternative to chlorinated solvents such as HCFC-225, 141b, TCE and nPB, which are currently being phased out due to health and environmental risks. The safe exposure limit for nPB has been measured at 5-10 ppm industry authorities even recommend further reducing to 0.1 ppm whereas Opteon SF79 has a safe exposure limit of 201 ppm, which is comparable to everyday rubbing alcohol.
