Refrigerant producers are advising us that their costs are continuing to be impacted by multiple production interruptions are the world on raw material supply and HFC component availability.
Demand for access to their CO² equivalent tonnes quota for 2017 continues to exceed their expectations and , as a result have applied further price increases which we have no alternative but to pass on. The increase will apply from the 1st of August 2017 and are as follows
R404A, R507C, R125, R508B, R23 50%
R417A, R422D, R438A 55%
R134a, R407F, R32 20%
With a significant reduction in quota for 2018 we would recommend you implement plans to move away from high GWP products and low GWP alternative refrigerants wherever possible.
We have also received an increase notification of oxygen, acetylene and oxygen free nitrogen of 5%
