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 July 2017 and are as follows
R404A, R507C, R125, R508B, R23 50%
R442A, MO89 75%
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
