Transcend®

Product
Molecule

Transcend® additive technology offers a unique approach to improving next-generation foam technologies; it goes beyond a single performance enhancement. Transcend® technology, based on trans-1,2-dichloroethylene (Trans-1,2-DCE), can be added to HFC and HFO foam formulations to create unique foam products. Transcend® technology delivers improved compatibility of blowing agents and polyols as well as reduced viscosity, thus improving the flow characteristics of many foam formulations.
