The ozone layer is our shield against harmful UV light from the sun and was severely damaged by using CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) as propellant for example in spray cans. The ozone layer is our shield against harmful UV light from the sun and has been severely damaged by the use of CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) as a propellant in spray cans and other similar uses. The Montreal Protocol forbade these substances, only for them to be replaced by FHC (fluorohydrocarbons) which also add to the global warming effect. For a long time underestimated and regarded as too difficult to use in the industry, pentanes have now widely replaced these molecules. With no ozone depleting potential and comparatively little impact on global warming, pentanes perform excellent in styrofoam, polyurethanes and other applications. They help insulate against heat or cold, thus saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.
Haltermann Carless is the only producer offering all three isomers: iso-pentane, n-pentane and cyclopentane.
