9 Key Cost Points ecomate® has resulted in reduced foam density as low as 22,4 kg/m3 Free Rise Density. Commercial experience shows ecomate requires less molar equivalents than HC’s. ecomate requires less flame retardant to achieve rated foam than HC’s. ecomate is a small part of overall demand for the molecule and there are multiple plants in the world.
