DuPont™ Formacel┬« foam expansion agents

Construction Applications

DuPont products have played a major role in the construction industry for over 30 years. DuPont™ Formacel® foam expansion agents are just one important component of the expanding applications for DuPont products in this industry.

Formacel® foam expansion agents are used as a component in building insulation, such as block pipe and roof insulation, doors, sheathing, foundations, and as sealants for windows and doors. The non-flammability rating of Formacel® foam expansion agents, along with their environmentally acceptable characteristics, make an excellent product of choice in building insulation versus hydrocarbons.

Formacel® foam expansion agents are non-VOC, non-ozone depleting, and offer low global warming potential and reduced energy consumption. The expansion properties of Formacel® foam expansion agents create more uniform components, resulting in better, tighter insulation, higher energy efficiency and reduced energy consumption.

Formacel® foam expansion agents are also used in construction to create polyurethane molding and decorative wood alternatives. The product's uniform expansion and non-flammability offer a safe, attractive product.
