DURACOOL® Refrigerant will improve the performance
and the life expectancy of refrigeration equipment and air-conditioning systems.
Duracool Refrigerants contain Duracool A/C Oil Chill™ a synthetic friction reducing additive. Duracool A/C Oil Chill reduces compressor operating temperatures and improve thermal and chemical stability.
Duracool® Refrigerants reduces energy use and will either stop or reduce a system leak due to the larger molecules.
Duracool® Refrigerants provide higher efficiency, lower head pressures and are non-corrosive.
You can be assured that Duracool Refrigerants are only made from the highest refined pure ingredients available.
Duracool® consistency ensures performance you can rely on and trust.
Duracool® Refrigerants replace many of the environmentally harmful refrigerants currently in use.
DURACOOL® 12a is marketed and sold world wide as a replacement for R-12 and R-134a
In The United States Duracool 12a is sold as a replacement for ozone-depleting CFC R-12 Substitutes and global-warming HFC R-134a refrigerant.
Duracool® 22a has been Re-Branded to Duracool R 290 is marketed and sold worldwide as a
replacement for R22 except for the United States.
In The United States we no longer sell Duracool 22a or Duracool 502a, we do market an EPA approved refrigerant
R 290 (CAS #74-98-6) . R 290 Refrigerant, Duracool R 290 is Subject to EPA Use Restrictions for use in new food refrigerators and freezers (stand-alone units only), in accordance with EPA regulations at 40 CFR Part 82. Duracool R 290 is sold in 30 and 50 pound equivalent non-refillable cylinders in the United States and is also available in 8 ounce cans.
Attention United States Customers:
In The United States Duracool R 290 Refrigerant is not legal for use in a Central Residential or Central Commercial Air Conditioning System. Allowable uses can be determined by reviewing the regulations below or visiting the E.P.A website. In the United States the E.P.A. (Environmental Protection Agency) regulations state that it is illegal to use any hydrocarbon refrigerant and / or Duracool R290 refrigerant in a Central Residential or Central Commercial Air Conditioning System.
R 290 is a proposed EPA acceptable substitute refrigerant for R-22 under the SNAP Program The EPA has classified R 290 as acceptable, subject to use conditions, in new retail food refrigerators and freezers (stand- alone units only).

It is illegal to use 502a refrigerant in any application within the USA.
In the United States it is illegal to use a hydrocarbon refrigerant as a substitute for a Class I or Class II ODS refrigerant for any end use other than industrial process refrigeration systems, or retail food refrigerators and freezers (stand-alone units only). See 69 Fed. Reg. 11946, 11952 (March 12, 2004), and 76 Fed. Reg. 78832 (December 20, 2011). Under the SNAP regulations at 40 C.F.R § 82.172, "use" is defined as "any use of a substitute for a class I or Class II ozone-depleting compound, including but not limited to use in a manufacturing process or product, in consumption by the end-user, or in intermediate uses, such as formulation or packaging for other subsequent uses."
