All Weather Insulated Panels (AWIP), Vacaville, Calif., is said to be the first company of its kind on the continent to employ Honeywell’s innovative Solstice liquid blowing agent.
By adopting Solstice liquid blowing agent, AWIP helps customers reduce their environmental footprint and comply with the most stringent environmental and energy efficiency regulations.
AWIP panels provide efficient solutions for wall, roof and interior wall claddings in commercial, industrial and cold storage building applications. For facilities that require temperature-controlled environments – such as cold storage warehouses, freezers and food processing facilities – AWIP panels provide superior energy ratings and meet the latest structural and fire safety standards.
"Honeywell is an innovative leader in foam insulation, and we are honored to be considered the best company to bring Solstice liquid blowing agentto the North American insulated panel market,” says William Lowery, president of AWIP. “Solstice liquid blowing agent makes our panels more efficient and will advance our insulated metal panel technology to further meet the growing energy, environmental and economic challenges facing the North American building industry. For our customers, that means long-term energy savings, and that helps the planet.”
Solstice liquid blowing agent is based on hydrofluoro-olefin (HFO) technology, a critical ingredient in closed-cell foam that allows it to expand and provide excellent insulating properties. Solstice liquid blowing agent increases the thermal performance of polyurethane (PUR) and polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam used for insulated metal panel products.
“We are very pleased that AWIP, an innovation leader in North America, has chosen Solstice liquid blowing agent for its production of commercial panels,” says Patrick Clifford, global business manager for Honeywell’s foam blowing agents business. “Demand for Solstice liquid blowing agent continues to accelerate as more and more insulation producers are seeing the advantages of our new fourth-generation blowing agent.”
