Knoxville, TN, January 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- As announced by Polymaster Foam, an independent testing was conducted in line with the requirements set by the EPA and the Canadian government. The test has revealed that RetroFoam, a foamed-in insulation, has been found to exceed the safety standards that each respectively authority has set.
According to the January 2009 statement of the Canada-based research firm Cambridge Materials, RetroFoam insulation was discovered to be well below the level of formaldehyde based on the guidelines for air contamination set by Canada's health department in 1995 and 2006. The test was conducted with two-month monitoring.
By adhering to the standards set by EPA and OSHA, Cambridge Materials tested RetroFoam's aldehyde, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide contents as well as its relative humidity. Results show that the foamed-in insulation had formaldehyde content that varied between 28 ug/m3 and 36 ug/m3, relatively lower compared to the 120 ug/m3 as provided by Health Canada.
The test was came just in time to help Polymaster, who faced the problem after Canada banned Retrofoam.
Company president and owner Steve Sayers has been in the industry since 1983. Through the years, he has built his reputation in contributing technological and scientific innovations that helped advanced the insulation foam manufacturing. Recent tests conducted for health agencies in the US and Canada had proven that RetroFoam was actually safe in all levels of use.
According to Company statement, “Retrofoam is a urea formaldehyde resin that is used to insulate homes and offices with values of R-16, compared to R-13 for fiberglass batting.” The insulation is designed as an investment-wise decision that helps the user save money on electric and heating bills while at the same time serving as a sound blockage updated with state-of-the-art technology to prevent mold growth in walls. To address to the growing demands for green and eco-friendly products, Sayers is working on a Sustainable Green program for Retrofoam.
