Forane® 32

Product
Room Air Conditioning

Forane® 32 has a unique balance of cost, performance, low GWP, and availability, making it a growing choice for HVAC. Forane® 32 (HFC-32 or R-32) is one of the next generation low GWP (675) solutions being implemented globally. R-32 is a refrigerant gas for air conditioning, with high capacity and zero glide, and electronics. Forane® 32 is growing in consensus as the choice for new air conditioning units, designed for mildly flammable refrigerants as a replacement for R-410A (GWP 2088).
