DuPont™ FEA-1100: 1,1,1,4,4,4 - Hexafluoro-2-butene

Gary Loh, Technical Service Consultant, introduced the name of the DuPont™ FEA-1100 molecule at the RAPRA 2010 Technical Conference.

The following points were discussed during the presentation:

  • the properties and characteristics of FEA-1100 in polyurethane applications such as appliance, pour-in place, spray and polyisocyanurate board stock
  • a six-month stability testing in polyether and polyester systems
  • an update on recent toxicity evaluation
  • material compatibility with typical process materials (metals, gaskets, etc.) and materials used in appliances (HIPS, ABS, etc.)
  • properties (particularly insulation performance) of foams made with FEA-1100 and blends of FEA-1100 with hydrocarbons and HFCs
