Understanding the New Industry Standard for Refrigerants

Why A2L Refrigerants Pave the Way for the Future of the RAC Industry

In the wake of continued and emerging regulations around refrigerants, the refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC) industry is actively seeking environmentally sustainable refrigerants with low global warming potential (GWP) and zero ozone depletion potential (ODP).

Recent innovation using hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) chemistry has led to the development of mildly flammable refrigerants with an A2L ASHRAE safety rating. The Opteon™ XL portfolio includes A2L HFO refrigerant solutions that are reliable, safe, efficient, and high-performing. These refrigerants minimize the need for equipment redesign, because they provide larger charge sizes and easier integration of electrical components than the previous generation of more flammable hydrocarbon refrigerants.
