MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Honeywell (NYSE: HON)
announced today thatAchilles Corp., a leading Japanese manufacturer of
industrial products, has adopted Honeywell's next-generation Solstice^® Liquid
Blowing Agent (LBA) for use in its line of spray polyurethane foam (SPF)
building insulation sold under the trade name Achilles Airlon FR-FO.

According to Achilles Corporation, spray foam systems formulated with Solstice
LBA demonstrate about 25 percent better thermal insulation performance than
water-blown systems.

Foam blowing agents allow closed-cell polyurethane foam insulation to expand
and provide the majority of the foam's excellent insulating properties.
Solstice LBA has a global warming potential of 1, which is 99.9 percent lower
than today's most commonly-used blowing agent, HFC-245fa, a hydrofluorocarbon,
while retaining its insulating performance.

"Honeywell is committed to developing technologies that help our customers
produce energy-efficient materials that are better for the environment," said
Sanjeev Rastogi, business director for Honeywell Fluorine Products. "We are
delighted to help Achilles introduce a new class of spray foam insulation in
Japan that benefits from our expertise in developing and supplying
high-performance, energy-efficient, and low-global-warming-potential

Solstice LBA is being adopted by SPF manufacturers around the world that are
looking to reduce their environmental footprint and comply with environmental
and energy efficiency regulations. Solstice LBA is nonflammable and is not a
volatile organic compound. It is approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Honeywell
is currently providing commercial quantities to customers, and is building
world-scale production capacity for Solstice LBA that is expected to come
online early this year.

Blowing agents from Honeywell can be used in a wide range of applications,
including household refrigerators and freezers, insulated architectural
panels, and refrigerated shipping containers.

In addition to Solstice LBA, Honeywell's family of Solstice-branded products
includes stationary and mobile refrigerants, gaseous blowing agents,
propellants, and solvents based on Honeywell's new hydrofluoro-olefin
technology that helps customers lower their carbon footprint without
sacrificing end-product performance.

The Solstice products have been developed and are being commercialized by
Honeywell's Fluorine Products business, a leader in the manufacture and supply
of non-ozone-depleting refrigerants used by top air-conditioning and
refrigeration makers worldwide, and blowing agents for energy-efficient foam
insulation, as well as hydrofluoric acid and precursors for nuclear fuel.
