27/06/2014 – It ‘just started a collaboration with Bichimica Srl, the only distributor for fluorinated solvents produced by Arkema SA in Italy to start distribution of a range of innovative products, non-flammable and non-ozone depleting.





As third generation hydrofluorocarbons, Forane®365mfc/227ea blends (87/13 and 93/7) are the ideal replacements for R-141b for rigid foam blowing agent needs. Forane® 365mfc/227ea blends have zero ozone depletion potential and boiling point similar to HCFC 141b, thus they can be handled as a true liquid at room temperature. While the straight Forane® 365mfc has a flash point, Arkema offers two different blends that have no flash point and are not subject to flammable liquid regulation.

Forane® 365 HX is a less aggressive solvent than 141b, so it is even more compatible with materials itnormally encounters; however, in the most difficult cases, this lower solvent power as special metals, plastic and glass.
