    Pentane Study: Tenary blends offer benefits to PU and PIR industry

    Pentane Study: Tenary blends offer benefits to PU and PIR industry

    Pentane blowing agents are widely used in the insulation industry. Since the performance and properties of Polyurethane (PU) and Polyisocyanurate (PIR) foams can vary considerably - depending on the isomer used - Haltermann Carless has conducted a study to take a closer look at the behaviour of blends consisting of the three isomers n-Pentane, iso-Pentane and Cyclopentane. The results of these tenary blends look promising and might offer additional benefits to the insulation industry.
