Haltermann Carless Pentane: Tailor-made and ecologically beneficial

The insulation industry plays a crucial role in energy transition. More efficient insulation for refrigerators and freezers or even pipe insulation contribute to achieving our climate goals. Particular emphasis, however, is placed on building insulation. Improving energy efficiency in buildings is therefore crucial in achieving the ambitious goal of carbon-neutrality by 2050, set out in the European Green Deal. Find out here why this will only work with high-quality Pentanes and reliable suppliers.

Pentanes - indispensable blowing agents for an improved eco-balance

For insulation materials to really insulate and develop their effect, they need an important and indispensable raw material: Pentane. Without this helpful substance, which has a decisive function as a blowing agent for insulating foams, the insulating performance could not be achieved. Pentanes therefore play a central role and should accordingly be of high quality – for optimum insulation performance and high energy efficiency.

Pentanes from Haltermann Carless meet a wide range of demands for very different applications. This is because, in addition to being used in the insulation industry for buildings, cooling appliances or district heating, our Pentanes are also used as solvents and process media in the chemical industry or in self-foaming gels in the cosmetics industry.


Reliability, quality and service are the basis of our work    

Through our many years of experience in the Pentanes business and the close and regular exchange with our customers, we understand the specific requirements imposed on our Pentanes and their key role in the various applications. Consequently, we are well positioned to meet the needs of the various industries. We listen, understand and provide answers.
