Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Critical Point

Vehicle air conditioning systems make use of the vaporization and condensation process. In this case, one works with a substance which boils easily, designated as refrigerant.
The refrigerant employed is tetrafluoroethane R134a, which boils at -26.5 °C (-15.7 °F) at a vapor pressure of 1 bar (14.5 psi).
The critical point (critical temperature and critical pressure) is that above which there is no longer a boundary between liquid and gas.
A substance above its critical point is always in the gaseous state.
At temperatures below the critical point, all types of refrigerant in pressure vessels exhibit both a liquid and a gas phase, i.e. there is a layer of gas above the liquid.
As long as there is still gas present in the container next to the fluid, pressure is dependent on ambient temperature. Refer to → Chapter „Refrigerant R134a Vapor Pressure Table“.
  Note
Different types of refrigerant are never to be mixed. Only the refrigerant designated for the corresponding A/C system may be used.
