SOLKANE® products continue to be among the most reliable, safe, efficient and cost-effective options for today’s competitive business environment. 

SOLKANE® blowing agents are an important component in order to produce foams such as polyurethane (PU) foam, which provide best thermal insulation properties. Thermal insulation is part of the state-of-the art way of construction, be it for individual houses, commercial complexes, industrial structures or public buildings. In this area rigid polyurethane foams (PUR) are established as the most efficient thermal insulation material that is manufactured on industrial scale. This behaviour is used in Transport Cooling (Trucks/Reefers etc.) too.

Chlorinated hydro-fluorocarbons are currently being replaced by ecofriendly alternatives - in particular the state of the art foaming agent SOLKANE® 365/227.

SOLKANE® 365mfc, for example, is a hydrofluorocarbon of the latest generation. It has no ozone depleting potential and is a perfect team player. It is miscible with a wide range of other organic foam blowing agents like other HFCs or even hydrocarbons - the choices are almost unlimited. 

IXOL is a high performance halogenated polyether polyol, which acts as a reactive flame-retardants for polyurethanes and rigid polyurethane foams.
 

Features & benefits

  • EPA SNAP Approved – Acceptable substitute for ozone-depleting substances
  • An unrivaled commercial, logistical and customer service network
  • Minimizes raw material costs while improving insulation performance - high performance at competitive prices
  • Combined with the Solvay's IXOL® range of reactive flame retardant polyols, SOLKANE® 365mfc blown PU foams reach the highest possible classifications for organic insulation materials
  • Formulations containing the polyol IXOL® B251 can lead to the manufacture of sandwich panels with a class B according to the European classification. This is the highest level that can be achieved by polyurethane foams.
