Opteon(TM) YF (HFO-1234yf) automotive refrigerant from Chemours readily meets U.S. and EU regulations, providing the optimal balance of performance, sustainability and safety.
The lasting benefits include:
-Excellent environmental properties: ODP = 0; GWP = <1
-Comparable to HFC-134a for refrigeration properties
-Acceptable stability and compatibility properties
-Mildly flammable (significantly less flammable than HFC-152a)
The use of HFO-1234yf is growing exponentially; by the end of 2017 an esimated 40 million vehicles are expected to use it in their air conditioning systems. Conversion of 40 million cars to Opteon(TM) YF would represent a reduction in carbon emissions by the equivalent of more than 3.2 billion gallons (12.1 billion liters) of fuel - the equivalent of taking appoximately 6 million cars off the road each year - compared to R-134a.
