R454C (Opteon XL20)

Summary

R454C (Opteon™ XL20) is a mildly flammable refrigerant with a GWP less than 150. It is used as a replacement of R404A and R22 in new equipment designs in positive displacement, direct expansion low and medium temperature commercial and industrial applications.

R454C offers similar performance to R404A and R22 which makes it easy and cost effective to apply in new equipment without major modifications. Classified as mildly flammable, R454C allows much higher charge sizes than other more highly flammable refrigerants and can be safely used by following the applicable codes and standards.
