What is a blowing agent?

13 April 2017 Kingspan Insulation Middle East

Simply, it is a substance used during the manufacture of cellular foam insulation products.

These agents are typically used to enhance the thermal performance of the finished product by filling the cells within the insulation with a low thermal conductivity gas.

To manufacture our Kooltherm and Therma ranges of insulation products and KoolDuct and PalDuct Hydro pre-insulated ductwork panels we use blowing agents with zero Ozone Depletion Potential and low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
