Honeywell partners with Mexichem to distribute R448A

Honeywell has entered into an agreement with Mexichem to distribute Solstice N40 (R448A) in the EU, following rising demand for the product due to F-Gas regulations and greater energy efficiency requirements.

Mexichem will sell the product under the name Klea 448A.

Sarah Hughes, Europe, Middle East, Africa and India commercial director for Mexichem’s Fluor Business Group, said: “We are committed to offering our European customers a product range which suits their needs today as well as safeguarding the future. We identified Klea 448A as a product which would complement our current product offering and give our customers a product that meets the future requirements of the EU market.”

Solstice N40 is the supermarket industry’s most commonly used, lowest global warming potential (GWP), non-flammable refrigerant to replace R404A, allowing for up to 16 percent lower energy consumption.

It can be used in new installations and to retrofit existing systems which use high GWP refrigerants like R404A and R507.

Julien Soulet, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Fluorine Products Europe, Middle East and Africa, explained: “Solstice N40 allows supermarkets and other commercial and industrial refrigeration customers to reduce their carbon emissions and energy consumption while helping to meet the stringent F-Gas regulation requirements.

“Solstice N40 is already a leading choice for supermarkets. Expanding the Honeywell distribution network in Europe will make Solstice N40 more accessible to customers, helping to accelerate the industry’s conversion to environmentally preferable and energy efficient refrigerants.”
