Honeywell claims SAE International evaluation of R-1234yf will reconfirm its safety

Honeywell claims most OEMs do not believe new information will lead to change in risk assessment.


As part of SAE International’s programs, internationally recognized laboratories – including Hughes Associates Inc. and France’s Institute National de l’Environment Industriel et des Risques (INERIS) – conducted extensive testing on flammability and safety, and all concluded that HFO-1234yf is safe for use in automobiles.
