Ensuring Genuine DuPont Refrigerants

Dedicated to Combatting Counterfeits

The DuPont Brand Assurance Anti-Counterfeiting Initiative is a multi-faceted program utilizing many technologies to combat counterfeit refrigerants. Leading the initiative at DuPont is Elizabeth Sassano, Global Marketing Manager, who for over four years has been integral in leading this effort. Sassano is a champion in the industry called upon to educate and inform local and state law enforcement as well as federal customs officials on increased security measures to protect our customers and products. In 2010, Beth led the launch of the customized DuPont™ Izon® security label and, in 2014, led an effort to increase security of DuPont refrigerants by introducing a Security Shrink Sleeve on the valve of all DuPont branded disposable cylinders (DACs). 

Elizabeth Sassano was recognized by The NEWS as a 2013 NEWSmaker which honored six industry leaders for their significant impact on the HVAC industry (for full article in The NEWS visit http://www.achrnews.com/articles/125120-sassano-fights-to-nullify-illegal-refrigerants). DuPont continues to challenge the unauthorized use and counterfeiting of its refrigerant gases, and to bring counterfeiters to justice, to ensure its customers receive legitimate, high-quality products from a brand they can trust.

The goal, as always with the DuPont Brand Assurance Initiative, is to ensure that our customers are receiving quality, genuine DuPont products.
