Air Products Plans October 2015 Launch of Three California Hydrogen Fueling Stations

Air Products announced that it will bring onstream three more SmartFuel hydrogen fueling stations in California during the month of October. The three stations are coming onstream, with another 25 hydrogen fueling stations involving Air Products that are now in the construction, planning or permitting phase, as automobile manufacturers gear up to launch fuel cell vehicles into the California market. The California stations set to open for public use in Oct. 2015 are located at: 11261 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles; 1819 Cloverfield Boulevard, Santa Monica; and the University of California-Irvine, Irvine.

Air Products to Highlight Water-Based Degreasing Solutions At Cleaning Products USA Conference 2015

Air Products's Materials Technologies segment will be featuring its Tomadyne® solutions for water-based degrease cleaning products at the Cleaning Products USA Conference in Alexandria, Virginia from October 7-9. Many cleaning product formulators are trying to reduce solvent levels in their cleaning products and are exploring water-based degreasing formulations as an alternative. But achieving an optimized blend of surfactants in these situations can be difficult and time consuming. Air Products' line of Tomadyne materials can help by providing a series of ready-to-use pre-blend surfactants that formulators can leverage to quickly and effectively create formulations without the need to purchase multiple products. Air Products' Tomadyne family consists of three main products: Tomadyne® 100 surfactant is an aggressive cleaner for systems containing low electrolyte levels; Tomadyne® 102 surfactant offers a milder solution for low electrolyte-containing systems where corrosion to metals is a concern; and Tomadyne® 108 surfactant provides excellent cleaning performance for systems containing higher levels of electrolytes.

Air Products Introduces Polycat 204 Catalyst for Rigid Polyurethane Foams

Air Products introduced the new Polycat 204 catalyst to its product portfolio for use in rigid polyurethane foams. Polycat 204 is a non-emissive catalyst specifically designed to help polyurethane foam producers maximize their foam performance and achieve up to six to eight months of system stability when incorporating next generation Hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) Blowing Agents, such as Honeywell's Solstice LBA (HFO-1233zd(E)). These new HFO Blowing Agents are being used and commercially adopted in response to increasing global regulation and, ultimately, the phase-out of Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) Blowing Agents. HFO Blowing Agents have significantly reduced global warming potential (GWP) relative to HFC Blowing Agents and are typically used in polyurethane foam applications that require high insulation properties, such as spray foam insulation, refrigerator/freezer insulation, and panel insulation for building structures. Increasing environmental regulation of HFCs and the need to reduce building emissions while maintaining shelf stability in applications like spray foam can present a real challenge to the polyurethane foam industry. Relative to conventional amine catalysts, Polycat 204 catalyst provides significantly more shelf stability in rigid foam systems containing Solstice LBA. This innovative product is helping the industry adopt HFO blowing agents with reduced GWP footprint, while also reducing VOC [volatile organic compound] emissions. The Polycat 204 catalyst is a tool that can significantly increase the shelf stability of Solstice LBA based spray foam systems. This helps customers achieve the product reliability they demand, while gaining the environmental and performance benefits of using Solstice LBA. Solstice LBA has an ultra-low GWP of one, which is 99.9% lower than traditional blowing agents and equal to carbon dioxide. It is non-ozone-depleting, nonflammable and is VOC-exempt per the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It has received approval under the EPA's Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program, the European Union's Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of Chemicals (REACH) program and other chemical registration requirements globally.
