Opteon™ 1100 is a nonflammable liquid at ambient temperature, with a boiling point better suited to polyurethane foam chemistry, processes and equipment. Unlike lower boiling HFC options, Opteon™ 1100 can be handled like HCFC-141b, eliminating some of the challenges presented by lower boiling points. Compatibility testing with plastics, elastomers and metals indicate that Opteon™ 1100 can be used in current foam manufacturing equipment with little or no modification.
Opteon™ 1100 is a sustainable and balanced option, offering the following characteristics:
Low Conversion Cost
High Energy Efficiency
Low vapor thermal conductivity
Liquid at room temperature with a boiling point 33°C (near HCFC-141b)
