Every so often, our team of experts at Intech Equipment and Supply likes to share information with our blog readers about the latest Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation innovations.
Here’s one of our recent discoveries:
What is it?
As you may already be aware, the U.S. EPA recently announced the eventual phase out of HFCs, such as HFC-245fa and HFC-365mfc, used in many of today’s closed-cell spray foam systems.
Honeywell’s Solstice LBA, an HFO-based foam-blowing agent, is a proven replacement for HFC blowing agents used in closed-cell spray foam systems for roof and wall applications.
Why is it unique?
SPF contractors who have switched to closed-cell SPF – featuring Solstice LBA – are seeing improved yields, superior insulating performance, better sprayability, less gun clogging and a smoother surface finish. Furthermore, minimal processing adjustments are typically required.
Not only can Solstice LBA provide better foam performance, its ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) of one is 99.9 percent lower than the HFCs it replaces, making it an environmentally preferred solution.
Who is it made for?
Developed in the U.S., Solstice LBA is ideally suited for contractors that want improved closed-cell SPF performance for wall and/or roof systems, as well as to be positioned to meet changing environmental regulations.
