Overview

Fluorochemicals

SRF’s Fluorochemicals Business (FCB) drives its business through the sale of refrigerants, pharma propellants and industrial chemicals.

Refrigerants

With a global distribution network, SRF offers a wide range of refrigerants for different applications. Refrigerants are used in applications such as room air-conditioners, automobile air-conditioners, refrigerators and chillers.

Marketed under the FLORON® brand, SRF is the only Indian manufacturer of ozone friendly refrigerants such as F 134a, F 32 and HFC blends such as F 410A and F 407C. We also manufacture F 22 as a part of our refrigerants portfolio.



F 134a and F 32 have been developed by SRF using indigenous technology. With the addition of F 125, SRF is now the largest producer and seller of refrigerants in India and has further consolidated its market leadership. SRF Limited is also one amongst the very few fully backward integrated players in this space.

Globally, the company commands the status of being a refrigerant manufacturer of choice, serving customers in more than sixty countries worldwide. Today, SRF’s F 134a and F 22 refrigerant is available in smart, easy-to-use cans; in fact our F 134a cans can be bought from the shelves of leading retailers in the world.



Pharma Propellants

SRF acquired the Dymel® HFA 134a/P regulated medical pharmaceutical propellant brand from DuPont™ in January 2015 along with the technology to convert our technical grade of F 134a to the propellant grade. In the process, we became one of the few manufacturers of Pharma grade HFA 134a/P in the world, which is used in Metered Dose Inhalers as a propellant. SRF has a world-class manufacturing facility at Dahej, India, where we produce HFA 134a/P as per European Monograph / BP standards.



Industrial Chemicals

SRF manufactures a wide range of industrial chemicals that are used for diverse applications such as feedstock for pharma and agrochemicals, metal de-greasing, foam blowing and dry-cleaning. Hydrofluoric Acid is also a part of the industrial chemicals portfolio.



Noteworthy

SRF’s Chemicals Business has been a proud recipient of the prestigious Deming Prize in the year 2012, demonstrating the Business’s significant contribution towards the development of quality control/management systems in its operations.


Products


Overview


SRF’s product portfolio for FCB includes a wide range of refrigerants, pharma propellants and industrial chemicals.


Refrigerants


Over time, FLORON® has come to stand for the highest quality and performance across multiple applications within air conditioning and refrigeration. The product range, marketed under the FLORON® brand includes F 22, F 134a, F 32, F 125, F 600a, F 152a and HFC blends (F 404A, F 407C, F 407A and F 410A).


In 2017, SRF further expanded its refrigerants portfolio to service the AC industry by acquiring the HFC 125 assets of a Global Major. SRF now has a broader portfolio of environmentally responsible refrigerants that it offers to its customers. It also makes SRF one of the very few producers in the world to be fully backward integrated, leading to greater efficiencies.



Dymel® Inhalation Grade 134a/P: HFA propellants for use in Metered Dose Inhalers


SRF acquired the Dymel® HFA 134a/P regulated medical pharmaceutical propellant brand from DuPont™ in January 2015 along with the technology to convert our technical grade of F 134a to the propellant grade. In the process, we became one of the few manufacturers of Pharma grade HFA 134a/P in the world which is used as a propellant in Metered Dose Inhalers. These inhalers are widely used for the treatment of Asthma. SRF has a world class manufacturing facility at Dahej, India where we produce HFA 134a/P as per European Monograph / BP standards.


Our Dymel 134a/P manufacturing facility operates as per stringent current Good Manufacturing Practice guidelines. SRF’s Dymel® 134a/P cGMP facility has been successfully audited by SGS and is a proud recipient of EXCiPACT GMP certification as pharmaceutical excipient suppliers. Today, SRF boasts of manufacturing EU Monograph/ BP compliant Pharmaceutical grade 134a at its fully backward integrated plant located in Dahej. SRF has filed Drug Master File for Dymel® 134a/P with the US FDA and Dossier has been submitted to European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines and Health Care (EDQM).


SRF has already started commercial supplies to a number of MDI producers in India and in the overseas markets.

Industrial Chemicals


SRF is a market leader in the safe and efficient production of industrial chemicals. The products manufactured under the industrial chemicals category are Chloromethanes such as Methylene Chloride and Chloroform, Trichloroethylene, Perchloroethylene and Hydrofluoric acid.


Manufacturing

Overview

We started our journey in fluorochemicals in 1989, manufacturing refrigerants at our plant in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan, India. In the early part of our journey, SRF collaborated with some of the leading global chemical technology developers that included Allied Signal in 1989 for CFCs and HCFC, Atofina in 1995 for Chloromethanes and DuPont™ in 2015 for HFA 134a/P. Over the years, the company backward integrated into manufacture of critical intermediates required for refrigerants, such as hydrofluoric acid, chloroform and trichloroethylene.

With the commissioning of our second F 134a manufacturing plant at the new Greenfield chemical complex at Dahej, we are now meeting the growing demand with a threefold scale up of capacity of the ozone-friendly F 134a refrigerant. SRF’s F 134a refrigerant finds application in home appliances such as automobile air conditioners, refrigerators as well as in stationary commercial refrigeration, chiller equipment, among others.

With innovation and technology leadership as the cornerstone of everything we do at SRF, we manufacture F 32 using technology that has been developed in-house.

SRF has also set up a pilot plant at its Bhiwadi facility to manufacture next generation refrigerant - HFO 1234yf. Our in-house technology will allow SRF to manufacture, brand and sell HFO 1234yf in India and in the global markets and also develop other HFO refrigerants in future.

At both our facilities in Bhiwadi and Dahej, we have well-equipped Q&A Labs that are accredited with the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration of Laboratories (NABL) to ensure that our products meet the highest quality parameters.



Product Innovation and Safety


We are continuously working on the way our products and services are designed, manufactured, distributed, consumed and disposed to ensure least environmental impact. We have developed new products such as our own in-house, lower GWP, HFC blends to replace R 22 and R 404A.

SRF’s Fluorochemicals Business has also filed product patents for HFC blends.

Research and Development


SRF has always been at the forefront of major fluorine-based refrigerant gas transitions set by regulations, from the Montreal Protocol to the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, and today’s commitment from the industrial countries to reduce their emissions of greenhouse gases. SRF has a dedicated in-house team for product and process development with an ever-growing number of patents to its credit.

Building on its in-house R&D capability, SRF has over the years received critical acclaim for developing indigenous technology to manufacture products such as Halons (now phased out as per Montreal Protocol), F 134a and F 32, PTFE grade of F 22, Trichloroethylene and Perchloroethylene.

Furthermore, SRF’s R&D teams are also committed to developing the next-generation of fluorinated gases and has set up a pilot plant to manufacture           HFO 1234yf. This breakthrough initiative will make SRF one of the few technology developers in the world to manufacture HFO 1234yf using indigenous technology.
