Blue Book 2018

The blue book 2018 has just been released.

In this transitional period, new fluids are being developed to replace the high-GWP refrigerator fluids. That's why the blue book, an essential tool for all users of refrigerants, has just been republished and updated.

Summary: 34 refrigerator fluids including 14 new ones, a fresh design for easier reading.
