Honeywellannounced that it has settled out of court with a U.S.-based company that imported and sold refrigerant products that infringed on Honeywell patents. Amount of the settlement and the name of the infringer were not disclosed. According to the announcement, the case involved a company importing and selling R-404A and R-408A among other refrigerant products that it received from a foreign broker. The broker claimed to have licenses for these products, a claim that proved to be untrue, according to Honeywell.
