Honeywell's Solstice® Liquid Blowing Agent Used In New, Highly Durable Roof For Cleveland Airport

Stocks in this article: HON

MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Sept. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its Solstice™ Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA) has been selected as a key component in the spray foam roofing system for the Cleveland Airport System, including multiple terminal and maintenance buildings at Cleveland-Hopkins International and Burke Lakefront airports.

West Development Group, the LaGrange, Ohio-based company that developed the spray foam roofing system featuring Solstice LBA, will apply the spray foam to more than 500,000 square feet of roofing at the two airports. The system recently received a severe hail rating from FM Approvals, the testing and certification arm of FM Global, which is one of the world's largest property insurers.

"The new spray foam roof was more cost-effective because we could apply it directly over our old roof, and it has helped us minimize disruption to passengers," said Rob Henderson, Building Maintenance manager, Cleveland Airport System. "As a bonus, our insurance premiums are now lower because our insurer, FM Global, approved the roof components."

Blowing agents such as Solstice LBA allow closed-cell spray foam insulation to expand and provide the majority of the foam's excellent insulating properties. Closed cell spray foam is used for a variety of applications, including appliance and structural insulation, as well as roofing.

Solstice LBA is a next-generation blowing agent with a global warming potential of 1, significantly lower than previous-generation hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) blowing agents. Solstice LBA is nonflammable, has received EPA approval under the Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program and is not a volatile organic compound.

"Solstice LBA has proven to be a superior blowing agent and a seamless drop-in replacement for the HFC-245fa blowing agent which we have used for years," said Jack Moore, project manager, West Roofing Systems.

"Solstice LBA offers significant energy efficiency and climate impact benefits to building owners at costs that are comparable to or lower than other blowing agents," said Laura Reinhard, Honeywell's global product manager for spray foam blowing agents. "Around the world, customers in a variety of industries – from spray foam to appliance insulation – have responded extremely positively to this breakthrough blowing agent."

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.
