: Environmentally Friendly
Conservation of our planet is important to FSI. Ecomate® is easy on the planet and approved to replace HFCs in all foam blowing end uses; US EPA SNAP program, SB 1013 legislation, the Paris Agreement.
Appliance manufacturers around the world rely on the superior insulating properties of Ecofoam® to improve the thermal efficiency of their products. Ecofoam®, formulated with Ecomate® blowing agent technology, helps manufacturers meet energy efficiency standards and consumer demand for energy-efficient appliances.
From refrigerators and freezers to beverage dispensers and foodservice equipment, we help companies produce better, stronger, and more energy-efficient appliances – while giving products the Ecomate® Advantage of environmental sustainability.
Ecomate® blowing agent technology not only gives Ecofoam® better thermal efficiency than foams blown with HFCs, HCFCs and HCs, it does so without increasing costs. And, unlike other blowing agents, Ecomate® does not contribute to global warming, ozone depletion or smog production. Ecomate® has been US EPA SNAP approved since 2003, making it the first and most proven alternative to HFC blowing agents. Connect with us today to learn more.
The use of Ecomate® blowing agent technology in our Ecofoam® polyurethane chemical system is a proven technology; it has been used throughout the commercial and residential refrigeration industry since 2002. Appliance industry foam systems powered by Ecomate® are optimized to meet a wide variance of applications while providing equal to or better R-value thermal efficiency than comparable 2lb foam systems. Ecomate® also provides increased ‘flow-ability’ when compared to HFC technology like 134A blown systems.
