Tailor-made Pentane blends from Haltermann Carless

Pentane blends

Insulations in the construction or cooling industry are important - for higher energy efficiency and thus for more cost savings and an improved climate balance. To achieve this, insulations with particularly good insulating properties are needed. Pentanes as blowing agents in insulating foams contribute significantly to improving the energy performance according to the guidelines of the European "Green Deal". In the following article, you will learn which other factors are decisive and how Haltermann Carless makes your insulation boards and thus an insulation even more efficient.


Decisive factors: High quality and customised Pentane blends 

The market requirements for Pentanes used in the refrigeration and construction industries, but also in the cosmetics and chemical industries, are high. Typical applications for Pentanes are Polyurethane (PU) foam, Expanded Polystyrene (EPS, better known under the brand name Styropor®), Extruded Polystyrene (XPS), foaming gels in personal care and catalytic processes. 

Three isomers - n-Pentane, iso-Pentane and Cyclopentane - or a corresponding Pentane blend are ideally suited for the different fields of application. As the only European manufacturer of all three isomers, we can supply you with a specific type of Pentane that best suits your requirements. 

Haltermann Carless Pentanes are characterised by: 

- a high product purity,
- sustainable properties,
- individual blends according to customer demands
