Abstract Conclusions of this criteria document: hexafluoropropylene (HFP) has a low acute toxicity; animal experiments indicate that the kidney is the principal target organ; given the chemical similarity of HFP with tetraflurorethylene, it is recommended that consideration be given to the possibility of carcinogenic effects. In general, HFP is considered to be of low potential risk and of low priority for further work.
