About RED TEK 12a
 

You may have heard that in 2012 the EPA will be banning 134a refrigerant in favor of more efficient and environmentally friendly Hydocarbon refrigerants.


What you may not have heard is that hydrocarbons have been available in the US for well over a decade, and are already running in millions of cars, trucks, tractors, and other farm equipment.

 
 

Although RED TEK was originally designed as an R-12 replacement (back when R-12 was banned) it works great in 134a systems as well. RED TEK runs colder than both 134a and even R-12 (up to 10 degrees colder than 134a) and works in both 134a and R-12 systems with no retrofitting required (it's compatible with all existing A/C oils, seals, and components).


RED TEK molecules are almost three times bigger than 134a and R-12 molecules, so it:


  • Is much less likely to leak out
  • Significantly lowers head pressure, thereby extending compressor life (up to 40% more efficient than 134a)
  • Takes much less to charge a system (6oz of RED TEK is equivalent to 18oz of R-12  or 16oz of 134a)

RED TEK is a high performance, ultra-efficient hydrocarbon refrigerant engineered for customers demanding an environmentally safe, lower cost "recharge" and retrofit option. RED TEK is a high performance, ultra-efficient hydrocarbon refrigerant engineered for customers demanding an environmentally safe, lower cost "recharge" and retrofit option. RED TEK is 100% safe for the environment with no contribution to global warming (which is the main reason the EPA is banning 134a) RED TEK is non toxic, non-carcinogenic, and non-ozone depleting. Simple and easy installation procedure with no retrofitting required and no license required.


Although RED TEK 12a is compatible with most existing refrigerants, please do not mix refrigerants as this is illegal in the US.
