Thermally Efficient

For companies using polyurethane foam for insulation, ecomate® is an ideal choice due to its superior thermal performance. In independent and OEM testing, ecomate® foam has proven to have thermal efficiencies comparable to or better than foam blown with harmful blowing agents such as HCFCs, HFCs and HCs. Plus, ecomate® far exceeds the thermal qualities of other environmentally neutral options such as water-blown foams.

The chart below shows how ecomate® compares to current and past blowing agents in lambda value, a measure of thermal conductivity. The lower the thermal conductivity, the better the insulating properties.
