Expertise in Demand

One air conditioning hose is not just the same as another – least of all when it comes to the new refrigerant R1234yf. If many started out by thinking that the previous hoses from R-134a systems could be adopted exactly as they were, they were soon taught otherwise: the new compressor oils in particular involve modified requirements. We will tell you what you need to be aware of for the different hose types in this newsletter.

The appreciation that our clients show for us demonstrates that it is not only our expertise that is in demand here. Thus, Honda Manufacturing in Canada has presented us with a supplier award for the second time in a row. We are also able to announce a world premiere: we are the first manufacturer that is able to supply laser-welded valve bodies for automotive air conditioning lines. These benefit the environment in particular.

Times are changing – and with them customer demands. This is why we will not become complacent with our past successes, but will work continuously at making tailor-made solutions and services available to you – in accordance with our vision of „Smart Solutions Beyond Rubber”.

Yours,
Bertrand Bogaert,
Head of Air Conditionint Segment
ContiTech Industrial Fluid Solutions
