WILMINGTON, Del. - DuPont Refrigerants announced that it has completed purchase of the HFC refrigerant blends business of Rhodia that is packaged under the Isceon® brand name.

According to the company, the acquisition will give refrigerant customers access to additional sustainable refrigerant solutions to help accelerate the reduction of ozone depleting substances.

"Completing this transaction to acquire the Isceon blends is an excellent example of how we are bringing more sustainable cooling and environmental solutions to our global customer base," said Mark Baunchalk, global business manager-refrigerants, DuPont Fluorochemicals.

"It also represents another important step in the progress we are making to achieve our vision for The Science of Coolâ„¢, which focuses on four key platforms - science and technology, environmental solutions, global relationships, and sustainable cooling."

DuPont Refrigerants will assume sales responsibility for such mineral oil-compatible HFC refrigerant blends as:

  • Isceon 49 (R-413A), an R-12 replacement in mobile air conditioning and stationary refrigeration;

  • Isceon 59 (R-417A), a replacement for R-22; and

  • Isceon 79 (R-422A), a replacement for R-22, as well as others.

    Also, DuPont will assume sales responsibility for Isceon 69 (R-403B), an HCFC replacement for R-502 in stationary refrigeration.

    "From a broader perspective, the acquisition also reinforces the commitment to DuPont Fluorochemicals, which is an integral part of the DuPont fluorine enterprise," said John McCool, global business director, DuPont Fluorochemicals.
