KEY FEATURES

  • High solvent strength

  • Fast evaporation rate (Twice of standard ethanol)

  • Excellent environmental profile

  • Favourable toxicology profile

FEATURES – BLOWING AGENT in POLYURETHANE FOAM FORMULATIONS (ie. Rigid Foams, Spray Foams)

  • Safest profile for people and environment

  • Economical solution – with the limited choices of blowing agents in the market

  • Fantastic miscibility with polyols or combined with other blowing agents with limited solubility to increase the formulation’s miscibility

  • Higher blowing ability compared to HCFC-141b

  • Better foam uniformity

  • Lowers flammability of Cyclopentane (C5) produced foam when formulation is mixed with Methylal

APPLICATIONS – BLOWING AGENT IN POLYURETHANE FOAM FORMULATIONS

  • With emphasis on environmental impacts, HCFC-141b (Dichlorofluoroethane) is becoming uncommon in the market and must be phased out worldwide.

  • Methylal is used either as a substitute or combination in the formulations of polyurethane foams.

APPLICATIONS – AEROSOL

  • High solvent strength to solubilise active ingredients and stabilize overall formulation

  • Fast drying time – cooling effect, reduces time of dampness

  • Improves wetting capability

  • Reduces aerosol particle sizes and the average size is made consistent for a smoother output
