It has a critical temperature of 73 °C.
It is used as a refrigerant either by itself or more commonly as a component of blended mixtures. Unlike CFCs used as refrigerants, trifluoroethane has no chlorine atoms and is therefore not a potent ozone-depleting chemical.
Trifluoroethane is also used as a propellant in canned air products used to clean electronic equipment.
