Conseil d'Etat Delivers Bad Blow to DuPont Kullman Koolant
Lifts French Ban on Mercedes. Heavily DuPont-Lobbied French Bureaucrats Trying To Force Use of Potentially Explosive and Dangerous DuPont Kullman Koolant For Car A/C
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,
Readers, if you were designing a truly SAFE and risk-free car A/C refrigerant, why in the world would your touted "world-class" engineers and scientists start with a mix of ingredients which could explode into a deadly toxic hydrogen fluoride gas fireball under certain conditions in a severe collision? But to their shock, this is what Daimler engineers found in independent testing could potentially happen when the Kullman Koolant (DuPont/Honeywell HFO-1234yf for car A/C) leaks over a heated engine in a crash.
With utmost concern for motorist safety, Dailmer refused to put the Kullman Koolant in their new Mercedes. The French technocrats cried "Mais Non!" A bitter legal fight ensues. Now the supreme administrative court in Paris, Conseil d'Etat, has ruled against the French and EU technocrats by canceling a ban against registering new Mercedes cars in France. France had blocked the registration of 5000 Mercedes sans Kullman Koolant.
This is yet one more blow to the highly questionable Kullman Koolant, fanning consumer concerns. Is the remote chance of cremation in a fiery toxic gas explosion ignited by the Kullman Koolant worth the risk? In the meantime, the mendacious Management of DuPont insists the Kullman Koolant is merely "mildly flammable", as safe and innocent as motor oil inside your car. They also quietly publish a few weeks ago, on July 25, 2013, a 10-page Safety Material Sheet specifying what to do if exposed and treatments. Hmmmm...you suppose in Fortress Wilmington, DuPont execs and their in-house army of little known lawyers from little known schools are running scared of potential mega legal liability down the road?
Stay tuned, folks.
