Icynene to use Opteon™ 1100 Foam Blowing Agent from Chemours
Opteon™ 1100 foam blowing agent from global chemistry company, Chemours, is set to be used in Icynene's high-performance spray foam insulation solutions. Icynene plans to use Opteon™ 1100, and add it to its portfolio of new polyurethane spray foam products that help deliver superior insulation performance with a lower global warming impact.
Opteon™ 1100 helps meet Icynene’s need for a non-flammable, high efficiency and low global warming potential (GWP) blowing agent for use in polyurethane foams. The excellent thermal conductivity and spray ability help Icynene to improve the performance of its foam insulation, while the low GWP enables them to support their customers in helping meet the upcoming regulatory driven conversions across North America, the E.U. and Japan. In addition, the unique chemical structure helps provide outstanding stability and versatility, thus maximizing the range of customer formulations and geographic product considerations.
The Opteon™ portfolio of fluorochemicals from Chemours represents a breakthrough line of low GWP solutions. They were developed to help meet increasingly stringent global regulations while generally maintaining or improving performance compared to the products they replace. As the leading supplier of more environmentally sustainable foams, refrigerants and aerosol propellants, Chemours has and continues to invest hundreds of millions of dollars to develop this portfolio of new products and additional capacity as the need for low GWP solutions grows throughout the world.
