DuPont announces 20% price hike for R22
GLOBAL refrigerant supplier DuPont Refrigerants is raising by 20% the price of its R22 refrigerant in Europe.
The price rise is effective from shipments on or after January 15, 2009.
“The limited availability and subsequently high pricing of hydrofluoric acid and fluorspar have made an increase of current prices inevitable,” said Gonzalo Alonso, sales manager for DuPont Refrigerants EMEA.
