Global polyols market: Use of alternative
blowing agents

Blowing agents, such as HCFCs and HCFs, are getting phased out because
of their harmful effects on the environment and human beings. With the
increasing demand for polyurethane foam blowing agents, this phase-out
has adversely impacted the global spray polyurethane foam market. HCFCs
and HFCs were the most used blowing agents in the polyurethane foam

"Methylal is used as a substitute for HCs and HFCs for manufacturing
polyurethane foams. It is a colorless, flammable liquid with a sweet
odor and a relatively low boiling point. It is used as a solvent for
manufacturing perfumes, resins, adhesives, paint strippers, and
protective coatings,"
says a senior analyst at Technavio for
research on olefins.
