HFO-1233ZDE BLOWING AGENT FOR POLYURETHANE FOAMS WINNER OF THE PU INNOVATION AWARD

HFO-1233ZDE BLOWING AGENT FOR POLYURETHANE FOAMS WINNER OF THE PU INNOVATION AWARD

01.11.2015

Having already been successfully introduced as blowing agent in different insulating polyurethane foam applications, for instance in Cold Storage Rooms or in Spray foams, HFO-1233zdE was named the winner of the 2015 Polyurethane Innovation Award by the American CPI (Center for the Polyurethanes Industry).

The award recognized the introduction of a very low GWP (GWP = 1) blowing agent, providing excellent insulation properties, enabling the attainment of high energy standards in insulation applications, such as domestic appliances, buildings spray foam, trucks, containers and ships.

Furthermore, the US EPA recently decided a “Change of Listing Status for Certain Substitutes under the Significant New Alternatives Policy Program”, banning HFC blowing agents for most foam applications.
