    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Cyclopentane – to keep things fresh and cold for longer!

    Fresh, chilled or frozen products have become an indispensable part of our lives. Particularly sensitive goods such as fish or vegetables need an uninterrupted cooling chain to guarantee the quality of the products throughout the entire processing route. It is not surprising that the requirements for the energy efficiency of refrigeration appliances are particularly high, as energy consumption represents a significant contribution to costs. Insulating materials for refrigeration appliances, foamed with Cyclopentane, therefore make a valuable, positive contribution to this balance.

    How Pentanes revolutionise thermal insulation

    How Pentanes revolutionise thermal insulation

    Energy efficiency and thermal insulation have become an integral part of our everyday thoughts and decisions. Whether we are re-insulating a building, insulating pipes or buying refrigerators, we are considering savings on our energy costs and thus reducing CO2 emissions. Manufacturers of insulation for the building or refrigerator industry have recognised their responsibility and are doing their part to protect the climate. However, high-quality raw materials - such as Pentanes, without which good insulation is not possible at all - are crucial for optimal insulation performance.
