AbstractAs industry began to evaluate CFC-replacements, it became apparent that foam performance characterizations have been based primarily on empirical evidence collected over a long period of gradualimprovements. Much of the existing wealth of knowledge was simply not applicable to new systems. The development of new products with CFC replacements requires understanding how formulation variables(polyol, isocyanate, blowing agent, catalyst) and manufacturing conditions affect foam properties, how conditions in use affect foam performance and how the process of sample selection and testing may be used to provide feedback to design improved foams.
