Foam Blowing Agents

Solstice® Gas Blowing Agent

Ideal for extruded polystyrene (XPS) and one- and two-component PUR foams, Solstice GBA replaces HFC-134a and other blowing agents. It has a GWP < 1.

Overview
Solstice® Gas Blowing Agent (GBA) is an ultra-low global warming potential (GWP) replacement for HFC-134a, HFC-152a, HCFC-142b, HCFC-22 and other blowing agents in foam applications. Examples include extruded polystyrene plank, polyisocyanurate, pressurized polyurethane foams (one-component and two-component), and froth foams.Based on hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) technology, Solstice GBA offers:• Properties similar to HFC-134a and HFC-152a• Nonflammable (ASTM E-681, EU A11)• Ultra-low GWP < 1• Non-ozone-depleting• Listed under the U.S. EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program to replace ozone-depleting substances• Not listed in Annex 1 of F-Gas regulation• VOC-exempt (U.S. EPA)• Listed on the TSCA inventory/registered under REACH• U.S.-based manufacturing
