About Opteon® YF 
Opteon® YF (HFO-1234yf) readily meets the EU F-gas replacement for automotive refrigerant, offering the best balance of properties and performance including:
  • Excellent environmental properties
    - Global Warming Potential = 4
    - Zero Ozone Depletion Potential
  • Comparable to HFC-134a for refrigeration properties
  • Acceptable stability and compatibility properties
  • Mildly flammable (significantly less flammable than HFC-152a)

These other industry options have certain limitations:
  • CO2: complexity, energy efficiency and requires mitigation
  • HFC-152a / secondary loop: performance, size and weight
