||1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (HFC-134a) is a colourless, non-flammable gas that is mainly used to replace hydrochlorofluorocarbons in refrigeration and air conditioning systems. The toxicity of HFC-134a is extremely low in experimental animals and no adverse health effects in humans have been reported. Animal experiments also suggest that the substance does not present a carcinogenic risk to humans at any foreseeable levels of exposure.
