Opteon™ XL: The Safe Side of Sustainability

Download our infographic and video on making a safer choice

Choosing a low-GWP refrigerant which drives efficiency and plays a role in promoting sustainability is high on the agenda when it comes to system design.

Understanding the difference in flammability behaviour between A2L-class refrigerants and A3 is important for safer installation, operation, and maintenance of equipment. This applies to many applications and particularly when it comes to Commercial Refrigeration and Residential Heat Pumps.

Watch our Low-GWP Refrigerant Flammability Safety video showing a simulation of a refrigerant gas leak scenario. 

The video shows typical flammable behavior of A3 and A2L refrigerants in a simulated leak scenario. 

We will also send you a copy of our latest infographic illustrating how Opteon™ XL refrigerants are safer options which also offer a long-term sustainable, versatile solution generating financial benefits.
