    3M™ Performance Fluid PF-5056 is a colorless, fully-fluorinated liquid. It is chemically & thermally stable, non-flammable & practically non-toxic. It is effective in reducing the thermal conductivity of polyurethane & other rigid foam formulations.

    Additional Information 3M™ Performance Fluid PF-5056, used in concentrations as low as 0.5% of the total foam weight, is effective at reducing the foam-cell size and thus the thermal conductivity of foam. The lower foam thermal conductivity helps manufacturers meet the continually tightening energy efficiency targets placed on appliances and other energy-sensitive applications. The resulting foams display k-factors that are typically 3% to 15% lower than those formulated without the additive. Like other 3M Performance Fluids, PF-5056 fluid is chemically and thermally stable, practically non-toxic and nonflammable.
