The American Chemistry Council’s Center for the Polyurethane Industry recently announced the winner of this year’s Polyurethane Innovation Award as Chemours’ Opteon 1100.

The Opteon 1100 is a hydrofluoroolefin blowing agent that CPI says addresses critical polyurethane needs, such as formulation stability and flexibility with existing components, excellent materials compatibility, exceptional long-term insulation performance and a sustainable solution to meet changing regulatory requirements.

“Chemours is very excited and proud to be the 2017 CPI Innovation Award winner,” said Joyce Wallace, North American Marketing Manager for Chemours.

“Opteon 1100 is an excellent example of true innovation that will take the PU industry to new heights—innovation for our customers and innovation for the world, keeping us warmer in the winter and allowing us to choose solutions that are better for our environment."

Award finalists also included BASF’s Irgastab PUR 70, an amine-free, aromatic solvents-free, anti-scorch system for Polyol and PUR foams, and Covestro’s PUReWall, a new spray polyurethane foam formulation that allows for residential wall panel production.

“Each year, the CPI Innovation Award finalists represent our industry-wide drive to transform ideas into new products and technologies that enhance the quality of life,” Salamone said.

“I’m thrilled to mark our 60th anniversary with such an incredible display of what’s possible when visionary members discover new applications of polyurethane chemistry.”

The win was announced at the end of 2017 Polyurethane Technical Conference in New Orleans earlier this month.
