WILMINGTON, DE — DuPont Fluorochemicals is notifying customers of a supply shortfall for hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) 134a, marketed as DuPont Suva 134a refrigerant, DuPont Dymel 134a aerosol propellant, and DuPont Formacel Z4 foam expansion agent.

According to a press release that DuPont issued this week, the company experienced an unexpected interruption at one of its manufacturing plants, which occurred during a time of peak demand and low seasonal inventory. The company said it has taken corrective measures to maximize utilization of existing inventories and current production but that the supply disruption is impacting customers worldwide.

In a prepared statement, John McCool, global business director, DuPont Fluorochemicals said, “We take this situation very seriously, because we are committed to our customers and their long-term success in this marketplace. We have built strong relationships with our customers over the years based on reliable supply and quality service and products such as HFC-134a. This is a short-term supply issue, and DuPont is doing everything possible to restore normal operations quickly. We ask our customers’ continued patience during this critical time, knowing that once we get beyond this situation, we will be in a stronger position to satisfy our customers’ supply needs going forward.”

The company said it expects the shortage to continue through the end of the year.
