The Polymer Institute of the University of Detroit Mercy and Nisshinbo Industries of Japan jointly described work with azeotropic blowing agents (AZBs) as zero-ODP, zero-GWP, full replacements for HCFC-141b in flexible and rigid foams.
Advantages of AZBs over HFCs or hydrocarbons are said to include their low boiling points, which provide more efficient blowing action and lower-density foams than do their individual components alone.
