R454A (Opteon™️ XL40) is a low GWP hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) based refrigerant replacement for R404A and R22.

R454A offers superior performance with respect to cooling capacity and efficiency. This enables a reduction in CO2-equiavalents of 94% compared to R404A.

Classified as mildly flammable (A2L), R454A allows much higher charge sizes than other flammable refrigerants and can be safely used by following the applicable codes and standards.
