AbstractReplacement of traditional blowing agents, chlorofluorocarbons (CFC), with partial1y halogenated chlorofluorocarbons (HCFC) that have thermal insulating performance inherently lower than that of CFC brought to question their long-term thermal performance (LTTP). As a result of research activities, two predictive techniques, slicing and scaling or slicing and modeling, are now considered for evaluating long-term thermal performance of different foam products: polyisocyanurate, polyurethane, extruded polystyrene, and phenolic (resole) foams. But without defining: What does the "long
