Thermal insulating foams

A wide range of solutions

At GRIT we offer a wide range of blowing agents and additives for every need.









GRIT Blowing Agents and Additives for Thermal Insulation Foams

Blowing agents and additives are particularly crucial components in the production of thermal insulation foams. When combined with base materials, they form a closed-cell structure that delivers exceptional insulation performance. There are various types of thermal insulation foams, each with specific requirements and applications. At GRIT, we primarily focus on three types: Polyurethane, Expanded Polystyrene, and Extruded Polystyrene, offering a range of specialized products for each.

GRIT Products for Thermal Insulation Foams

At GRIT, our product range includes a variety of additives and blowing agents specifically designed for each type of thermal insulation foam. These products are created to meet and exceed the specific requirements of each foam type, ensuring top quality and performance.

For Polyurethane, we offer:

  • Additives: IXOL B-251, enhancing the fire resistance and dimensional stability of polyurethane foams.
  • Blowing agents: Various options like Cyclopentane, Cyclopentane/Isopentane, Grietene for PUR, Isopentane, n-Pentane, Grietene n-pentane, n-Pentane/Isopentane, R-152a, R-365mfc/R-227ea, HFO-1233zd. These are essential for cell formation in polyurethane foams, improving insulation and resistance.

For Expanded Polystyrene, we offer:

  • Blowing agents: Including options like Isopentane and n-Pentane. These agents enable the expansion of polystyrene, resulting in optimal cellular structure and enhanced insulation and resistance properties.

For Extruded Polystyrene, we provide:

  • Blowing agents: A variety of products like Grietene for XPS, Isobutane, R-152a, R-152A/DME, and Dimethyl Ether. These enhance thermal resistance and provide long-term stability for extruded polystyrene foams.

Applications and Benefits

Thermal insulation foams have a wide range of applications, from building construction to food packaging. Regardless of the application, the use of our additives and blowing agents can significantly improve the energy efficiency of thermal insulation foams. This not only reduces operational costs but also minimizes environmental impact. Additionally, these products can enhance fire resistance and dimensional stability, vital factors for many industrial and commercial applications.
