Opteon™ 1100 Foam Blowing Agent

A Foam Blowing Agent to Reduce Energy Consumption

Opteon™ 1100 foam blowing agent is a new generation product with low global warming potential (GWP). As part of an insulation foam, this product provides exceptional energy efficiency, long-term thermal resistance, material compatibility, and extended shelf-life of the initial formulation.

Opteon™ 1100 offers a host of advantages for users, including:

  • An optimal boiling point for thicker passes with higher yields
  • Excellent dimensional stability in critical applications
  • Better thermal performance in foam insulation for the life of a structure

Opteon™ 1100 qualities make it well-suited for a variety of polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foam applications including:

  • Spray foam
  • Integral skin
  • Appliance insulation
  • Flotation pour-in-place
  • Pipe insulation
  • Panels
  • Bun stock

Features and Benefits

Opteon™ 1100 foam blowing agent is a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) based solution that can replace hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs), and hydrocarbons (HCs) in urethane-based foam applications. Its chemistry gives polyurethane spray foam insulation a longer shelf life, providing contractors with more flexibility and reducing waste.

The stability of Opteon™ 1100 allows spray foam to work with the metals, plastics, and elastomers in existing equipment, making it an ideal drop-in substitution that enables insulation reformulation without having to change equipment or recipes. Key characteristics of Opteon™ 1100 include:

  • An optimal low boiling point
  • Nonflammable
  • Low global warming potential (GWP) of <2
  • Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
