Use of Solstice® Propellant reduces global warming impact of signal horns and dusters by 99 percentMORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., Nov. 1, 2011 Honeywell (NYSE: HON) announced today that its low-global-warming-potential propellant has been adopted by Falcon Safety Products, reducing the global warming impact of its safety horn, marine horn and non-flammable duster applications by 99.5 percent.Honeywell Solstice ® Propellant (formerly known as HFO-1234ze) will be used in Falcon's ECO line of safety and marine horns, including the ECO Sonic and the ECO Sound, and its non-flammable Dust-Off ® ECO duster. Solstice Propellant, which has a global warming potential (GWP) of 6, will enable these end products to significantly reduce their global warming impact when compared to products using other propellants."Honeywell's Solstice Propellant provides customers like Falcon Safety Products with an environmentally superior propellant alternative that provides similar functionality to older propellants," said Hannelore Rittinger, global business manager aerosol and solvents for Honeywell's Fluorine Products business. "This is another example of how our low-GWP platform is being adopted widely in a variety of end-use applications around the world."
