Opt for the Preferred Refrigerant of the NHL®


Rink operators across North America face a looming challenge: as of January 1, 2020, R-22 refrigerant production has stopped, yet many rinks continue to rely on it for day to day operation of their ice plant. Opteon™ refrigerants provide a solution for business continuity, offering the optimal balance of performance, safety, and cost efficiency compared to other alternatives, while providing economic and environmental sustainability for your rink.

Chemours has partnered with the NHL® as part of the NHL’s Greener Rinks Initiative, a league-wide program committed to sharing sustainable business practices with community rink operators and owners.
