What Are A2L Refrigerants & Why Do We Need Them?

Feb. 2, 2022
Learn why using A2L refrigerants is the smartest way to stay compliant, save money and protect the planet.

Ongoing regulatory requirements are driving the HVAC industry towards lower Global Warming Potential (GWP) refrigerants. Recent innovation using hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) based refrigerant technology has led to the development of mildly flammable A2L refrigerants, such as the Opteon™ XL line of products. These refrigerants provide equipment manufacturers with reliable choices that can help minimize equipment redesign, by providing larger charge sizes and easier integration of electrical components when compared to other alternatives. For many applications, A2L refrigerants can provide the optimal balance of properties, when considering factors such as reliability, safety, sustainability, performance, efficiency, and total cost of ownership.

Opteon™ XL products are designed to meet the most stringent environmental and safety standards for A2L refrigerants, so you can feel confident making the switch from legacy refrigerants.  Chemours provides training and ongoing guidance that you need to work with the next generation of refrigerants safely and effectively.
