ecofoam® Rigid Foam Systems

Designed like no other, performs like no other.

Ecofoam® is a two component rigid polyurethane designed for use in a wide range of industrial, commercial and residential products. Ecofoam offers many bene ts, such as superior thermal insulation, structural support, acoustic attenuation and water/vapor suppression. Those diverse attributes are why you’ll find ecofoam in everything from appliances and foodservice equipment to building panels, entry and garage doors, HVAC equipment, refrigerated transportation and much more.

Superior thermal efficiency and performance.

Polyurethane foams offer excellent insulation value that’s far superior to traditional materials like cellulose, mineral wool and fiberglass, and is also superior to EPS (expanded polystyrene) and XPS (extruded polystyrene) board stock.

Ecofoam takes polyurethane foam to the next level, however, offering best-in-class insulating performance plus other properties without having a negative impact on the environment. That’s because ecofoam is made with our patented ecomate® blowing agent technology, which is not only environmentally friendly, but also provides R-values greater than commonly used blowing agents such as hydrocarbons (HCs) and hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). Plus, ecofoam and ecomate have a 15-year proven unparalleled track record in a wide range of industries.

Environmentally responsible.

Thanks to its patented ecomate blowing agent technology, ecofoam is the zenith in rigid foams when it comes to environmental responsibility. Ecofoam has no global warming potential (GWP), no ozone depletion potential (ODP) and no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), so it does not contribute to smog production.

Ecomate was first approved by the US EPA in 2003 to replace HCFCs and HFCs in all foam blowing end uses under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program. In commercial use since that time, ecofoam has proven to be superior to other polyurethanes made with HCFCs and HFCs. Ecofoam also provides our customers’ products with a “green” competitive advantage, often while reducing overall costs and requiring little or no changes to production processes and equipment.

Environmentally Responsible

  • Zero global warming

Typical Processing Conditions

For best results, final processing conditions should be vetted and approved by customer.

Mold/Fixture Temp.
27-43ºC (80-110ºF)

Finished Foam Fire Properties

PU products are organic materials and combustible under certain fire conditions. Ecofoam contains low-level fire retardants designed to cause foam to extinguish once a flame source is removed from the surface. Foam will burn while in contact with flame or under very high temperatures.

UL 94HF-1 (PASS or FAIL)
PASS

Local building codes set forth requirements for use in building applications. Consult local building authorities for viability of product.

Thermal Insulation Properties

Third-party testing has shown that ecomate blowing agent does not condense (begin to liquify) at temperatures as low as -85ºC (-121ºF).
