More information:

Acoustix Forest PUR has been compared to an industry standard Nylon Broadloom carpet (no cushion) product which serves as the business as usual for the floor covering product category. The life cycle inventory data compiled for the BAU product was obtained from industry study.

The product uses an expanding agent which contains ADCA (CAS number 123-77-3). ADCA is categorised with R42 (may cause sensitisation by inhalation) and R44 (risk of explosion if heated under confinement). It is also on the Candidate List of Substances of very high concern for Authorisation. ADCA is used to produce foam backing via purposeful reaction. This ingredient is encapsulated with the final flooring product, so there is very rare chance that end uers will be irritated by inhalation. The risk is more likely to happen during the manufacturing process of foam backing and expanding agent itself. Polyflor and its expanding agent supplier provided sufficient evidence that the occupational risks are mitigated. The products have successfully passed the relevant GreenTag Standard's Cautionary Assessment Process and no issues of concern or red lights comments exist regarding the toxicity of the products.

The scope of certification includes PVC sheet flooring of 3.7mm thickness, with density of 2.55kg/m2.
