The Chemours Company, formerly DuPont Performance Chemicals, has over 8,000 employees across 35 manufacturing sites, all with the singular focus of bringing higher value chemistry. In partnership with its customers, Chemours has developed innovative, high-market-impact applications, establishing categories within the chemical industry and harnessing the potential of the molecule to push boundaries for what is possible. Its flagship products include prominent brands such as Teflon™, Ti-Pure™ and from a refrigerants perspective, Freon™ and Opteon™.
The refrigerants business represents a key piece of the 200-year heritage of innovation that Chemours brings to its customers. The business invented the fluorochemicals category over 85 years ago when Thomas Midgley Jr. discovered a “miracle compound” which would come to be known as Freon™. Since the invention of the original fluorine-based refrigerant, Chemours has demonstrated unshakeable leadership and commitment to the global refrigerants industry as it has had to transition from the original products to new solutions that are both non-ozone depleting and low global warming potential. Chemours offers its customers a wide range of refrigerant solutions to meet the needs of a changing industry including Opteon™ for its low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants, and Freon™ for its established HCFC and HFC portfolio. These refrigerants are utilized across a broad range of applications including stationary and mobile air conditioning and refrigeration. Chemours also offers other low GWP products such Opteon™ 1100 for foam blowing agents and the Opteon™ S Series for specialty fluids.
