Pearl Polyurethane renames its entire series of polyurethane systems for insulation applications to EcoPearl

Following the introduction of a revolutionary new low lambda insulation product this month, Pearl Polyurethane, the largest systems company in the Middle East and North Africa with a growing international customer base, has renamed EcoPearl all its series of polyurethane systems for insulation applications. .

The newly renamed EcoPearl The existing product series covers a wide range of applications from metal sandwich panels and pre-insulated pipes, to spray foam insulation for commercial and residential properties as well as other insulation applications such as appliances and water heaters, all of which can be modified by Pearl Polyurethane to the specific needs of the end user.

“Our continued commitment to sustainability is a key driver of the rebranding of the product portfolio, as evidenced by the release this month of our new low lambda insulation product,” commented Martin Kruczinna , CEO of Pearl Polyurethane Systems. Low lambda refers to the thermal conductivity value of an insulating material and is a measure of its ability to prevent the passage of heat at a particular thickness under defined conditions. When the lambda value decreases, the thermal performance of the material increases.

With sustainability goals firmly in mind, when developing this new product, Pearl’s research and development team addressed a range of questions, such as how to use fourth-generation blowing agents more effectively , pentane and other environmentally friendly blending agents to significantly improve insulation properties while ensuring affordability is maintained.

After nearly nine months of work by the company’s R&D team, this revolutionary low-lambda product completed testing on customer machines earlier this year and is now ready for launch.

The main benefits of the new product are an overall improvement of up to 20% in the insulation performance of polyurethane-based metal sandwich insulation panels – depending on application use – compared to current EU standards. regional industry, as well as achieving the highest fire levels. – delay adapted to receive FM approval. Significantly, the new product formulation can be delivered to customers as a pre-mixed two-component, which means that insulation board manufacturers can use existing factories and production lines to produce the new low-lambda product variation, avoiding thus the need for substantial investment in new or upgraded equipment.

As the world’s first independent system company to develop low lambda cores for continuous metal sandwich panel products, Pearl’s R&D team recently won the Innovative insulation project of the year 2021 award for its R&D initiative.

“Winning this award is an important part of Pearl’s mission to raise awareness of the sustainability issues and enhanced energy saving benefits of polyurethane-based insulation boards as part of a regional and global solution to reduce energy for heating and cooling purposes. Through the continuous development of new and innovative products in our EcoPearl range, Pearl enables the construction sector to play its part in the fight against global warming. Our mission is to continue to build on these successes by listening carefully to our customers and responding with targeted R&D initiatives and new product solutions. We anticipate that this approach will continue to significantly increase our throughput volume and lead to future industry awards for Pearl globally,” Kruczinna concluded.

Pearl Polyurethane offers a complete line of polyurethane formulations and prepolymers for the production of high performance polyurethane foams and elastomers.
