    Is there not a rule requiring punctuation on this site? Because just reading the original post makes me feel dizzy.

    One of my co-workers speaks so fast like he's in a super hurry, and I can hardly ever understand anything he's asking me. It reminds me of reading a post that has no punctuation.

    Refrigerant is way too general of a term - that could be anything from water to ammonia. I insist people specify and call it chlorodifluoromethane, or difluoromethane-pentafluoroethane blend to keep from confusing the customer.

    Then I drink a coke(R) and blow my nose with a kleenex(R). I'll sometimes use another kleenex(R) to wipe down my channel-locks(R) and crescent(R) wrenches that were made by Craftsman(?).

    haha, cliff... I suppose if I was a generic form of someone named Cliff then that would make sense.

    My definition? "Freon" is a trade name of CFC and HCFC refrigerants manufactured by DuPont. "Freon" is also a generic descriptor, or sometimes known as an eponym, where that trade name is used to describe all flourocarbon refrigerants.

    Is it proper? Well, I suppose dupont would say no. Am I going to correct a customer? No. Will I use the term myself with a customer? Absolutely, as they have an idea of what Freon is, and very often I've got a cylinder of Freon-22 with me.

    Here's a quick read on the subject: http://http://www.straightdope.com/columns/read/1464/is-there-a-term-for-trade-names-that-become-generic

    It's not Freon, it's FreeZone. Just ask some of your custiomers. Long time since I have seen a Dupont cylinder. Freon es a registered Trade name of I. E. Dupont as is Genetron and Forane.
