It is a long term, environmentally friendly, Non-Ozone-depleting, Energy efficient, Non-Toxic, Nonflammable Refrigerant Gas widely used in Automobile Air conditioning, Residential, Commercial and industrial Air conditioning and also used in Medium Temperature Refrigeration, Commercial Refrigeration, Food processing, Storage Refrigeration, Industrial Refrigeration, Transport Refrigeration and also used in High-Temperature heat pumps. R134a Refrigerant is mainly developed to substitute CFC’s and HCFC’s which is having Zero ODP (Ozone Depleting Potential) and relatively less GWP.
Maxron R134A can be used with Polyester (POE) or Poly Alkylene Glycol (PAG – Only for Auto Air conditioning) and NOT with Mineral Oil or Alkyl Benzene Lubricant since it is not miscible with Maxron R134a Refrigerants. POE or PAG Oil absorbs moisture quickly when it is exposed to the atmosphere. Any way to handle this issue very carefully and avoid prolonged exposure to air.
