Arkema is expanding its range of sustainable high performance solutions to assist its customers in making the transition to fluorogases with a lower GWP (global warming potential).

A major fluorogas player, Arkema is developing a low-GWP HFO product range for end-use applications in the refrigeration and insulation markets. These solutions in particular are designed to replace the HFC gases targeted by changes in the regulations.

In the polyurethane foam market for insulation applications, Arkema offers Forane® 1233zd in Europe and other parts of the world, an HFO blowing agent that is ozone-friendly, non flammable, and has a very low GWP.

With this latest generation fluorogas range offering excellent performance and a lower global warming potential (GWP), Arkema fully supports the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol, which aims at a gradual reduction of the use of HFCs.
