Gist”: Rigid foam formulation is mixed without air to delay nucleation

Why it is interesting: The invention is about translucent rigid foams which are said to be useful as wall and roof elements such as light strips, light domes and the like.  The foams are based on (pref.) trimerized aliphatic diisocyanates and are blown with water.  The composition is degassed and then mixed without inclusion of air to delay nucleation. The resulting foams have a course cell structure and thick cell struts which apparently allows light to pass through.
