Duration: 1 hour
On-demand webinar recording

With the rapidly changing blowing agent regulatory landscape, formulators need to stay ahead of changing environmental and performance requirements now! In this webinar, Honeywell and Evonik will highlight two key ingredients for a new generation of foam systems: Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA), the industry-leading hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) blowing agent, in combination with POLYCAT 206, the newest member of Evonik’s extensive catalyst family. POLYCAT 206 is designed for use with Solstice LBA as an improvement over conventional amine catalyst. Information on formulating with these two materials, foam performance, storage and handling, and more will be shared.
