  1. A Revolutionary, Yet Economical New Blowing Agent

  2. A Revolutionary, Yet Economical New Blowing Agent

  3. ecomate® advantages • A True LIQUID Blowing Agent • Patented: US 6,753,357 w others Pending • To Replace HCFC’s, HFC’s, HC’s • SNAP Approved • ZERO ODP, ZERO GWP, VOC Exempt • Economically Advantageous • Good Solubility • Low Volatility • Good Foam Properties • Good Foam Flammability Resistance

  4. ecomate® Blowing Agent Properties • Clear, Colorless, Flammable Liquid • Boiling Pt • Flash Point • LEL \ UEL • LAMBDA, gas ( 25 °C) • Vapor Pressure ( 25 °C) • Auto Ignition Temp • Specific Gravity • Molecular Weight

  5. BA COMPARISON

  6. GAS LAMBDA VALUES

  7. ecomate® Blowing Agent- Environmental Characteristics • ecomate blowing agent is an attractive long term environmental option

  8. Cost Efficiency

  9. Key Cost Points • ecomate® has resulted in reduced foam density as low as 22,4 kg/m3 Free Rise Density. • Commercial experience shows ecomate requires lessmolar equivalents than HC’s. • ecomate requires less flame retardant to achieve rated foam than HC’s. • ecomate is a small part of overall demand for the molecule and there are multiple plants in the world.

  10. ecomate®Solubility • Excellent solubility in all foam ingredients

  12. Vapor Pressure of Stored ecomate® Blends UN 1A1 Max pressure “A”Polyol Blend withecomate® Blowing Agent mmHG

  13. Vapor Pressure of Stored ecomate® Blends UN 1A1 Max pressure “B”ISO Blend withecomate® Blowing Agent mmHG

  14. Physical Properties • Very Good Properties

  15. ecomate® Density Potential Blowing Agent

  16. ecomate® Density Potential

  17. ecomate® Fire Resistance

  18. Integral Skin

  19. Integral Skin • Ability to solvate ALL polyols • Good skin formation • Perfectly suited Boiling Point • Economical • Half the MWt of HCFC 141b • Patents Pending • US EPA SNAP Approved

  20. Flexible Foams • Good Solubility • Fine Cells • Safer than Hydrocarbons • Non-VOC

  21. Rigid Applications • Moulded Roof Panels • Pipe-in-Pipe Insulation

  22. HIGH vs LOW INDEX WITH / W-OUT FRA ESTER EFFECTS DENSITY TARGET RXN RATES I = 375, 225 TCCP @ 0, 2,7% ESTERS 1 thru 6 28 - 32 kg/m3 CT 6 – 8 sec GEL 18 – 22 sec TF 20 – 30 sec ISOCYANURATE FOAMS

  23. OBSERVATIONS – PIR FOAMS • ecomate compatible in ALL FORMULATIONS • NO HAZE – CRYSTAL CLEAR • NO NEED TO EMULSIFY • VISCOSITIES : • ~ 300 cps with HIGH WATER • ~ 70 cps with ALL ECOMATE

  24. TYPICAL FORMULATIONS

  25. RESULTS w FRA [w/wo H20] • HI ECO Level • IMPROVES RATIO • FS UNCHANGED • SMOKE LESS • Promotes Shrinkage

  26. RESULTS w/wo FRA • w/o FRA • FS - Much WORSE • SMK - Much WORSE • WT LOSS HIGHER

  27. RESULTS w/o FRA • HIGHER DENSITY • LESS ECO Used • ELIMINATE SHRINK • NEARLY SAME • FS = • SMOKE - • WT LOSS +

  28. RESULTS w/o FRA • INCR. ECOMATE • RATIO IMPROVES • FS WORSENS • SMOKE VARIES • WT LOSS  • SHRINKAGE  • BEST SCENARIO • ~ 0.6% H20

  29. RESULTS w/o FRA [0.6% H20] • DECR. INDEX • RATIO IMPROVES • FS WORSENS • SMOKE  • WT LOSS  • NO SHRINKAGE

  30. RESULTS w/o FRA [0.6% H20] • ESTER AFFECTS: • FLAME SPREAD • SMOKE • WT LOSS • SHRINKAGE OK!

  31. RESULTS w FRA [0.6% H20] • EFFECTS ARE more SUBTILE • ESTER AFFECTS: • FLAME SPREAD • SMOKE • WT LOSS • SHRINKAGE OK!

  32. IMPROVED PROPERTIES • CO-BLOW w H2O • USE RIGHT SURFACTANT • PROPER CATALYSIS • < Strong Blow ……………Strong Gel>

  33. CONCLUSIONS • No Need to EMULSIFY BA • ESTER Choice CRITICAL • Some FRA Suggested • CO-BLOWN ECO/H20 Suggested • ~ 0,6% H20 Optimal • Right Surfactant & Catalyst Pkg

  34. ecomate® advantages • A True LIQUID Blowing Agent • SNAP Approved • Good Solubility • Low Volatility • Good Foam Properties • Good Flammability Resistance • Cost Competitive • TRY IT….YOU’LL LIKE IT !
