Evaluating Safety Performance Properties of Common Foam Blowing Agents

The Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program was created by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Its purpose is to evaluate and incorporate substitutes for ozone-depleting chemicals as they continue to be phased out under the Clean Air Act. Some of the materials most affected by SNAP guidelines are: Foam blowing agents used in refrigerators […]

Advantages of Fluorinated Solvents Over Aqueous Cleaning

For many industries like medical device, aerospace and automotive, it is imperative that parts and components be cleaned and degreased before they are assembled or shipped. However, while many cleaning solutions currently exist on the market, regulations for cleaning chemicals are becoming more stringent. Because of this, manufacturers are turning to more environmentally sustainable cleaning […]

AMOLEA 1224yd Low-GWP Replacement Helps Urethane Foam Manufacturers Meet Stringent Environmental Regulations

Hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) are organic compounds that have been synthetically manufactured to be used as refrigerants. They came to popularity in the 1980s when chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) were banned from the market because they were harming the Earth’s ozone layer. While HFCs have an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero, they are still potent greenhouse gases and […]

Smudge-Resistant Transparent Coating Protects Glass, Metal, Plastic and Stone Surfaces

Technology like touch screens, cameras and sensors has become a staple in our daily lives. However, defending their delicate surfaces from contaminants or fingerprints is no easy task. Whether the goal is to improve safety, maintain aesthetics or reduce maintenance, adding the right protective coating is critical. That’s why AGC developed SURECO™ 2320. This fluorinated […]

High-Purity Polyols Improve the Performance of Coatings, Sealants and Adhesives

Today’s builders and engineers rely heavily on polyurethanes. This popular plastic material is safe and versatile, making it ideal for many different end-uses. Polyurethane polymers are formed by the reaction of isocyanate and a polyol. However, because different polyols have different formulas, they are not one-size-fits-all. In fact, selecting the right polyol formulation can be […]
