Honeywell Solstice Propellant is not a VOC.
"The EPA's decision means that there is no longer an environmental trade-off required when selecting propellants. In the past, formulators had to choose between flammable propellants like hydrocarbons and dimethyl ether, which have low global warming potentials (GWPs) but are VOCs, or a nonflammable propellant, like HFC-134a, which is not a VOC but has a higher GWP," said Terrence Hahn, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Fluorine Products. "Now Honeywell's Solstice Propellant combines two highly desirable properties--low GWP and non-VOC--along with non-flammability, for a triple win for the environment."
Honeywell's non-flammable, non-ozone depleting Solstice Propellant has a global warming potential of 6. It is an alternative to HFC-134a and HFC-152a, two propellants in common use today, which have GWPs of 1,430 and 124, respectively, as well as the flammable hydrocarbon propellants. Solstice Propellant can be used in various aerosol applications including personal and household care products, dusters, warning systems, industrial cleaners, novelty aerosol products and others.
