Arkema Co-Sponsors 2023 SPFA National Industry Excellence Awards
Arkema is proud to co-sponsor the annual National Industry Excellence Awards on February 14, 2023 at the SprayFoam 2023 Convention and Expo. Awards will be issued in several categories for projects that demonstrate excellence in our industry. A panel of industry experts will select the award winners through a blind judging process. Arkema’s continued support of the awards comes as the company continues to make new strides in bringing Forane® 1233zd to market.
The company recently announced the successful start-up of the production facility of its partner Aofan in China to continue supply of Forane® 1233zd globally. Forane® 1233zd, a liquid blowing agent, is used primarily in closed celled polyurethane foam for building insulation and cold chain applications. The material’s ultra-low GWP and high insulation value are a major benefit for builders and manufacturers looking to maintain a low environmental impact.
1233zd is part of the new generation of fluorospecialties with no or minimal emissive impact, aligned with Arkema’s sustainable development strategy to address the opportunities linked to global mega-trends. It is non-flammable and performs exceptionally well at extreme temperatures.
Arkema, along with Evonik, looks forward to presenting the awards to the winners this year.
