Polyurethane Foam Systems

Product information

Pentanes are used as blowing agents in the manufacture of polyurethane foams.

This foam is used as insulation in household and commercial appliances, refrigerated and cooling containers, insulation boards and panels, pipe insulation and similar applications.

Pentanes for foam applications are highly complex in their composition. Each one must meet stringent environmental requirements, whilst providing high insulation performance and control under various processing conditions. At the same time, they are expected to offer dimensional stability and long-term technical parameters.

To meet these market demands, a Pentane grade appropriate to the particular polyurethane system is required for each individual application.

Our portfolio of Pentanes is designed to meet today’s and tomorrow’s market needs for hydrocarbon blowing agents. Tailored products within the n-, iso- and cyclopentane set range from pure technical qualities of min. 95%, to speciality grades based on tailored blend ratios to achieve an outstanding product.
