The R463A (trade name: OPTEON XP41) is made for fridges and freezers and will replace the existing R404A and R410A refrigerants.
The refrigerants’ global warming potential (GWP) stands at 1,494, saving 28% compared to the previous R410A. The freezing capability and efficiency are equivalent to those of the R410A, leading to improvements of coefficient of performance (COP).
ASHREA, a global society advancing human wellbeing through sustainable technology for the built environment, classifies the refrigerants’ safety as Class A-1 (non-flammable).
