What Is Ecomate?

Ecomate is an environmentally friendly foam blowing agent (or expansion agent) and family of polyurethane foam systems with no global warming potential (GWP), no ozone depletion potential (ODP) and no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so it does not produce smog. It is used around the world, in a wide range of industries, to produce rigid, spray and flexible polyurethane foam, as well as integral skin and extruded polystyrene (XPS) insulation.

Products manufactured with Ecomate blowing agent and foam systems have built-in environmental benefits that can give them a competitive edge – an edge we call “the Ecomate advantage.” Ecomate can improve the quality and consumer appeal of virtually any product in which it is used, due to its combination of excellent physical properties and valuable environmental benefits. These advantages can help differentiate a company’s products from those of its competitors, and can be used successfully in advertising, marketing and sales efforts.

Applications

Ecomate technology has been used successfully in virtually every possible polyurethane foam blowing application, as well as for other related uses. In fact, Ecomate is specifically listed by the U.S. EPA as an approved blowing agent for all 11 end uses included in the EPA’s SNAP program.

Rigid Polyurethane

Flexible Foam

Integral Skin

Spray Foam

Extruded Polystyrene

Co-Blowing

Key Benefits

Ecomate offers a wide range of valuable benefits that simply cannot be matched by any other blowing agent or polyurethane foam system. No other product can even come close to the proven track record of Ecomate, which spans more than a decade and includes a broad range of industries.

Ecomate Success Stories

Grizzly Coolers

When manufacturing a cooler that can keep its contents cold for up to 19 days, the insulation is obviously critical. So the excellent thermal efficiency of an Ecomate system made it a great choice for Grizzly Coolers. Plus, the company knew that producing the “greenest” cooler on the market was not only the right thing to do, but would also appeal to the environmentally conscious users of its products.

Delfield

Delfield, a division of Manitowoc Foodservice, is one of the largest custom stainless steel refrigeration equipment manufacturers in the world. As a global company with worldwide sales, Delfield benefits from using a blowing agent that complies with all EPA regulations, as well as with the Montreal and Kyoto Protocols. What’s more, Ecomate foam insulation helps Delfield create products that meet the strictest energy standards, further protecting the environment by requiring less power to operate.
