HFC Refrigerant Prices to Increase

National Refrigerants has announced today price increases for HFC Refrigerants that we are experiencing from our supply partners within Europe.

The explanation given for the increases are due to poor profitability of the current HFC businesses which need to reflect the need for improved margins in order to continue the investment in low GWP energy efficient alternatives required under the onset of the imminent F-Gas regulation.

The following increases will apply to all orders received and shipped from January 1st 2015:

HFC Refrigerants with GWP <2,500 +10%
R-134a, R-407A, R-407C, R-410A, R-417A, R-424A, R-427A, R-437A, R-438A

HFC Refrigerants with GWP >2,500 + 20%
R-23, R-404A, R-422A, R-422D, R-434A, R-507, R-508
