ORAFON R-1234yf is non ozone depleting HFC and Very Low Global Warming Potential. It was originally developed as a low global warming potential replacement for R-134a in the automobile air-conditioning application. Because of its desirable environmental properties, along with other factors. It is being investigated in a number of stationary applications as well.

For over twenty years, R-134a has been an extremely useful refrigerant gas in a number of applications. In fact, it is the most common refrigerant gas in mobile air conditioning (MAC) systems. R-134a has a global warming potential (GWP) of 1,430, creating direct greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to the total C02 equivalent emissions.

(i.e. carbon footprint) of MAC systems over their lifetime. A growing focus on the environmental impact of refrigerants is fueling demand for sustainable refrigeration solutions that can provide satisfactory cooling performance with a lower global warming impact. The EU MAC directive (2006/40) was put in place in 2006.1t limits the GWP of MAC refrigerant gases used in new car platforms to 150 from January 2011. From 2017 onwards, this standard will apply to all new cars.

ORAFON R-1234yf can be done either as a vapor or a liquid for charging. They compatible only with Polyalkyleneglycol (PAG) and Polyolester (POE). PAG & POE oils absorb moisture quickly when left exposed to the atmosphere. Handle them carefully and avoid prolonged exposure to air.
