NEW HCFO WITH A HIGHER BOILING POINT PROPOSED AS POLYURETHANE BLOWING AGENT AND SOLVENT

NEW HCFO WITH A HIGHER BOILING POINT PROPOSED AS POLYURETHANE BLOWING AGENT AND SOLVENT

28.02.2014

HCFO-1233zdE, a chloro-fluorinated molecule (CHCl=CH-CF3 or trifluorochloropropene) has a boiling point of 18.6C, and has been developed to cover applications for which the boiling point of other HFOs is too low.

Its GWP is 1, and, despite the presence of chlorine has a zero ODP, because of its very short atmospheric lifetime.

It is proposed as blowing agent for high performance polyurethane insulating foams, and also as solvent.

HFO-1233zd(E) could also be used as a replacement for HCFC-123 in Chillers, or HFC-245fa in Organic Rankine Cycles.
