Global polyols market: Use of alternative blowing agents

Blowing agents, such as HCFCs and HCFs, are getting phased out because of their harmful effects on the environment and human beings. With the increasing demand for polyurethane foam blowing agents, this phase-out has adversely impacted the global spray polyurethane foam market. HCFCs and HFCs were the most used blowing agents in the polyurethane foam market.

“Methylal is used as a substitute for HCs and HFCs for manufacturing polyurethane foams. It is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet odor and a relatively low boiling point. It is used as a solvent for manufacturing perfumes, resins, adhesives, paint strippers, and protective coatings,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on olefins.
