Honeywell’s Solstice Approved

MORRISTOWN, N.J. — Honeywell announced its new low-global-warming-potential (LGWP) Solstice™ liquid blowing agent for foam insulation has received final approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The approval allows the company’s new liquid blowing agent to be used in foam insulation in refrigerators, spray foam insulation for residential and commercial buildings, insulated metal panels, and other applications in the United States. The EPA granted the approval under its Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program.“ No other material identified or discovered to date offers the comprehensive range of advantages, from energy-efficient performance and ultra low-global-warming-potential to cost-effectiveness and safety, than this new product offering does,” said Sanjeev Rastogi, business director, structural enclosures for Honeywell Fluorine Products. “We are looking forward to working with appliance manufacturers and builders who are seeking to improve their energy efficiency and environmental performance through the use of this new chemistry.” Honeywell’s family of Solstice-branded products includes stationary and mobile refrigerants, gaseous blowing agents, propellants, and solvents based on Honeywell’s new hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) technology that helps customers lower their carbon footprint without sacrificing end-product performance. The products have been developed and are being commercialized by Honeywell’s Fluorine Products business, a manufacturer and supplier of zero ozone-depleting refrigerants used by air conditioning and refrigeration makers worldwide, and blowing agents for energy-efficient foam insulation.
