A blowing agent blend for making thermoplastic polymer foams includes methyl formate. The blowing agent blend can further comprise at least one co-blowing agent. The co-blowing agent is either a physical co-blowing agent (e.g. an inorganic agent, a hydrocarbon, a halogenated hydrocarbon, a hydrocarbon with polar, functional group(s), water or any combination thereof), or a chemical co-blowing agent, or combinations thereof. The thermoplastic polymer foam can be an alkenyl aromatic polymer foam, e.g. a polystyrene foam. The blowing agent blend includes me...
1. A thermoplastic polymer foam article prepared by a process comprising: preparing an expandable polymeric formulation comprising a thermoplastic polymer and a blowing agent blend comprising methyl formate and ethane, the blowing agent blend comprising about 70 to about 87 weight percent of methyl formate; andexpanding the formulation to form a substantially closed-cell, dimensionally stable foam article. 2. The thermoplastic polymer foam article of claim 1, wherein the thermoplastic polymer foam article is a sheet. 3. The thermoplastic polymer foam art...
