Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent is ideally suited as a foam blowing agent for closed celled polyurethane foam.  The very low vapor thermal conductivity of Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent allows for improved insulation values, while the low GWP value of 1 and VOC exempt status provides for a very low environmental impact.  Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent is non flammable, can be easily incorporated into B-side blends using existing polyurethane equipment and raw materials while imparting low vapor pressure.

Appliance insulation

Forane blowing agent application for refrigeration

Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent is ideally suited as a foam blowing agent for residential refrigerator freezer applications to meet ever increasing energy efficiency demands and standards.  The very low vapor thermal conductivity of Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent allows for improved insulation values, particularly when measured at critically important low temperatures.   With a low GWP value of 1 and VOC exempt status, Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent results in a very low environmental impact.  Forane® FBA 1233zd blowing agent is non flammable and can be easily processed using existing polyurethane equipment and raw materials.

Panels and cold chain applications
