The report gives results of a study of third-generation blowing agents for foam insulation. The third phase focused on identifying blowing agent substitutes. The investigation concentrated on the development of techniques to identify and replace deficiencies that may be present in an individual substitute through the use of blowing agent azeotropic mixtures. The two components of a mixture may display a syntergistic effect where the overall characteristics of the blowing agent are better than if either substance was used individually. The avove concepts on blowing agent mixtures should encourage interested parties to investigate the use of azeotropes in laboratory foaming trials on insulating polyurethane foams.
