General Information: Production of R-12 was halted by the Clean Air Act on January 1, 1996. Today the remaining supplies are product which has been recovered and reclaimed back to a Chemically Pure State in accordance to ARI - 700 Standard. The ARI Standard is basically a virgin specification. Persons arguning that the supply of virgin product is still available is probably unrealistic, since most of the reserves were depleted in the 1st year.
DoD Public Law prohibits the purchase of R-12 except for exsisting systems, when retrofit has been determined by technical staff to be prohibitive. Senior or Executive approval of this product to be purchased is required.
