roFILE 2009 J Company ProFILE 2009 J Arkema Inc. J ProFILE 2009 Company ProFILE 2009 J Company ProFILE 2009 J Company ProFILE 2009 Arkema is a global supplier of Forane® fluorochemical blowing agents for the rigid foam and other industries, offer- ing the widest product range of any industrial manufacturer. Arkema is committed to the rigid foam industry as the first producer of HCFC-141b and HCFC-142b, the materials that replaced CFC-11 and CFC-12. Arkema, with a world-class HFC-134a production site in Calvert City, Kentucky, has continued to develop solutions beyond HCFC's. These solutions include advances in HFC-134a foam processing and improved polyurethane foam performance using our propri- etary Transcend® additive technology (trans- 1,2-dichloroethylene or TDCE), with more innovation on the horizon. For example, when Arkema's HFC-134a is blended with Transcend® additive technology, the resulting coblown polyurethane foam has better adhesion than PUR foam blown with HCFC-22, with comparable compressability strength and dimensional stability. Transcend® additive technology also helps to reduce smoke generation and frame spread, and reduces the cost of formulations where this new additive is in the blend, making Transcend® technology ideal for next-generation blowing agent formulations used as replacements for 141b.
