    Abstract

    A new cellular foam for thermal insulation based on a mixture of thermosetting (nonpolyurethane) resins that has superior fire resistance and low apparent thermal conductivity has been developed. The resin components can be produced from either crude oil or coke as a starting material to produce rigid foams with densities in the range from 30 to 500 kg/m3. The new foam has very low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions and excellent fire resistance. Properties and applications of the new foam in construction and shells for industrial heat- and oil-pipe line insulation, and for insulating hollow brick or concrete structures will be discussed in this paper.
