Temperature Range


R456A was designed to extend the availability of R-134a in automotive MVAC while providing a cooling capacity boost for older vehicles.

R456A is a drop-in and go replacement, no oil changes or other changes are required.

Since R456A utilizes a HFO refrigerant (R-1234ze), vehicle service can utilize a value added up sale of Shrieve’s Zerol HFO additive.

R456A lowers the GWP of the R-134a system by over 50% (from GWP 1,430 to GWP 687) giving regulators peace of mind that the existing R-134a fleet will “age out” gracefully.


  • Drop-in capability in R-134a auto
  • Same efficiency as R-134a • Up to a 10% cooling capacity boost
  • Non-flammable – easy conversion, same safety classification as R-134a
  • Over 50% reduction in GWP – good news for future availability to service R-134a fleets
  • Ability to up-sale by co-selling with value added solutions for HFO refrigerants


R456A is an ASHRAE A1 classified refrigerant (same as R-134a) that was tailored to be a drop-in replacement for R-134a in automotive air conditioning.

It shares the same energy efficiency (fuel consumption) that the vehicle was designed for by the automaker. When used as a complete replacement, by removing all R-134a and replacing with pure R456A, the cooling capacity of the vehicle is increased by approximately 10% which gives a faster cool down in the hot summer months.

However, in service it is not necessary to do a complete replacement of R-134a. Operators can top off a system with R456A or when pulled into a RRR service machine can be mixed in any proportion with R-134a.

It is advisable to label the system as containing R456A, but if a user wants to move back to R-134a this flexibility is left to the professional service garage without any special considerations.
