Mexico City — Blowing agent company Chemours will have supplies of its Opteon 1100 material in Latin America after the summer, said Angel Escarcega at the UTECH Las Americas meeting in early April.
He told delegates: "This product will be available from June 2017." Speaking before his presentation Escarcega said that he had been trialling the material in South America in blends with other blowing agents and that it had been well received.
South American countries are moving away from HFC 141-b blowing agents and examining a range of alternatives, he added.
Escarcega was speaking at UTECH Las Americas, which was held in Mexico City between 4-6 April 2017.
