The refrigerant R32 is a single-component refrigerant. It is very suitable for air conditioning applications, for cooling and heating operation. Among other things, R32 is intended to replace the refrigerant R410A. The saturation pressure of R32 is very similar to R410A. This means that the development of an R32 system can be based on the R410A system. R32 has a greater specific cooling capacity than R410A.
The refrigerant R32 is difficult to remove, non-toxic and colorless. R32 has a global warming potential ( GWP ) of more than 1 (GWP = 675).
R32 has an ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential ) value of 0.
R32 is classified in safety class A2L according to ISO / ASHRAE .
With its GWP value of more than 150, R32 is subject to F-gas regulation 517/2014. It is thus affected by the phase-down scenario provided for in the F-Gas Regulation , but it will meet the requirements by 2025.
