Q. What is RED TEK® 12a™? [top]
  A. RED TEK® 12a™ is a proprietary blended ultra high efficient hydrocarbon refrigerant designed as a direct replacement for 134a and R-12 substitutes.


Q. Does RED TEK® 12a™ require retrofitting? [top]
  A. No! RED TEK® 12a™ is designed as a direct drop in replacement for R-134a and R-12 substitutes. RED TEK® 12a requires no major redesigning of the refrigeration system because it is compatible with existing oils, seals, O-rings, and hoses.


Q. Is RED TEK® 12a™ environmentally safe? [top]
  A. Absolutely! RED TEK® 12a™ refrigerants are organic, non-ozone depleting, non-toxic compounds. These refrigerants are endorsed by the GreenPeace organization and are in full compliance with the UN Montreal Protocol.


Q. Does RED TEK® 12a™ need EPA approval? [top]
  A. RED TEK® 12a™ is a second generation, non-ozone depleting replacement for R-134a and all other non-ozone depleting R-12 substitutes. The EPA's Final Rule, issued April 1, 1994, states: "In this final rule, the Agency has determined that second generation replacements, if they are non-ozone depleting and are replacing non-ozone depleting first generation alternatives, are exempt from reporting requirements under Section 612".


Q. Are RED TEK® refrigerants energy efficient compared to other refrigerants on the market today? [top]
  A. Yes! RED TEK® Refrigerants are up to 40% more efficient than Hydrofluorocarbon Refrigerants.


Q. Are RED TEK® Refrigerants corrosive to air conditioning systems? [top]
  A. No. RED TEK® Refrigerants are non-corrosive, non-caustic, and do not form acids in combination with system moisture.


Q. Can I lower "head pressures" in my A/C system by using RED TEK® Refrigerants? [top]
  A. Yes! RED TEK® Refrigerants can extend equipment and component life by lowering compressor "head pressures" up to 33%.
