Honeywell Settles In Refrigerant Patent Infringement Case
The settled case involved a company importing and selling R-404A and R-408A, among other refrigerant products, that it received from a foreign broker, according to the release. The broker claimed to have licenses for these products, but after careful investigation, this claim proved to be untrue. David Metcalf, marketing manager of Honeywell Genetron refrigerants, said in the statement the identity of the company is not being disclosed because it was a victim of misrepresentation.
According to Honeywell, its patent portfolio relates to a number of refrigerants, including R-404A, R-408A, R-410A, R-507, R-245fa and R-236fa.
