Bluon r-G8 Refrigerant....
Does anyone know what this stuff really is? Has anyone used it or know anything about it? Had some sales guy from a competitor company try to sell my customer on replacing the refrigerant in their A/C Units with this stuff. Claims they can save 15-30% on energy savings by reduced amp draw on the compressor. Also claims that its a direct drop in replacement for R-22 and R-410A, no need to flush the system or change anything other than the refrigerant. They stated that they charge by superheat (I Suppose they are talking about a fixed metering device system.) When questioned about a TXV I guess the guy hesitated.
I can't seem to find anything legitimate regarding this product. Though I've just started my research, I haven't found anything mentioned on any other site or EPA etc.... Can anyone shed some light on this???
My customer agreed to let them put their hands on (1) of the A/C Units as a trial run against better judgement. In return, they want my customer to provide a written statement on a company letterhead stating that they too were skeptics and were amazed at the performance of this refrigerant (Or whatever it is.) I personally think its a bunch of hoopla and gimmics and hope they destroy my customers equipment and voids every warranty imaginable with the use of this product.
Thanks in advance....
BTW - Here's a link to the product in question. http://bluonenergy.com/products.html
First I heard of R-G8 but sure sounds like all the other HC stuff that is out there.

Any further info?
Have there been any further developments with the Bluon r-G8 product discussion in refrigeration circles, any further field tests?
Has anyone been provided a TP chart, or and UL listing or related data?
What ever happened with this? Have you gotten any new information from your customer?
