R453A (RS-70) is a non-flammable blend which has a zero ODP and is compatible with both traditional and synthetic lubricants. It is a suitable replacement for R22 in both refrigeration and air conditioning applications at low and high temperatures. With its low GWP relative to other refrigerants, it is an excellent replacement for R22 in a wide range of applications.
