Freon™ 134a is a non-ozone depleting HFC refrigerant replacement for R-12 in automotive air conditioning systems. While HFC-134a is a standard in most cars manufactured before 2015, OEMs have shifted to utilizing HFO-1234yf in newer cars to comply with increasing environmental regulations. Opteon™ YF (HFO-1234yf) cools like Freon™ 134a in automotive air conditioning systems, but with a much lower global warming potential (GWP)–even lower than CO2. This breakthrough Opteon™ chemistry not only provides benefits, but also retains other important properties including comparable capacity and energy efficiency, low toxicity, and zero ozone-depletion potential.
Make sure you have the right refrigerant for every car. Whether you need HFC-134a or HFO-1234yf, Chemours offers reliable, high quality, and efficient refrigerant solutions in various packaging sizes to best meet your automotive air conditioning needs.
The Chemours Company offers different mobile refrigerant options for your vehicles. Most newer vehicles (manufactured after 2016) require the Opteon™ YF (R-1234yf), but you can still get the Freon™ 134a (R-134a) for older model vehicles. [...]
