Commercial refrigeration preserves both the quality of our food and the stability of the supply chain that moves it from source to table. Suppliers and distributors around the world rely on lightweight, high-performance Ecofoam® pour-in-place foam for superior temperature maintenance that reduces energy use and meets DOE mandates and NSF criteria.
Proven performance in commercial refrigeration
Commercial refrigeration products made with Ecofoam® ensure fresh inventory by providing excellent lifetime insulation with measured R-values up to 8.2 at 1” thickness and high performance down to -121oF. It provides manufacturers a reliable alternative to HFC insulation for walk-in applications that meet DOE Annual Walk-in Energy Factor (AWEF) criteria.
Ecofoam® pour-in-place foam demonstrates excellent adhesion to metal substrates, contributing to lifetime structural integrity of the product in demanding restaurant and commercial applications, allowing for the use of thinner skins and liners to lower overall unit cost.
Improved flowability of Ecofoam® technology compared to HFC systems leads to a more uniform in-place density and excellent dimensional stability. Its rapid cure time reduces overall cycle time. Wide processing latitudes enable manufacturers to potentially use one foam system with all refrigeration models, eliminating changeover downtime and boosting production output.
For UL-labeled units with internal wiring, Ecofoam® satisfies UL94 HF-1 flame rating criteria.
Ecofoam® meets NSF runtime reporting benchmarks, enabling products to exceed FDA food safety mandates.
Ecofoam® is expanded with Ecomate®, a zero-GWP blowing agent meeting the most stringent environmental regulations, including California SB1013. It does not require Prop 65 labeling.
Ecomate® blowing agent technology guarantees a more streamlined transition from HFC systems than other fourth-generation blowing agents. No permits are needed for operating with Ecofoam®; compared to pentane systems, no explosion proofing is required.
FSI’s global production and distribution network offers flexible delivery in totes, drums, pressurized cylinders or in bulk according to your needs.
Ecofoam is a proven solution with a two-decade track record in insulation applications such as:
- Walk-in freezers and coolers
- Retail grocery merchandisers
- Ice machines
- Insulated transport bins
Unmatched Regulatory Compliance
Because it is environmentally benign, Ecomate complies with all current — and most likely all future — regulations pertaining to foam blowing agents. As additional HFCs and other harmful materials are phased out, Ecomate will continue to be the reliable and affordable solution for foam blowing applications. Current regulatory compliance includes:
- U.S EPA SNAP Program
- Montreal Protocol
- Kyoto Protocol
- Kyoto ROHS Protocol (Restriction of Hazardous Substances)
- WEEE Directed (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
- GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)
- REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization)
- EPA SNAP Approved
