Created by the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam, Certipur-US is the U.S.-based certification program that ensures products meet standards for manufacturing polyurethane foam that is low in VOCs, (volatile organic compounds) free of prohibited phthalates and PBDE (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers, organobromine compounds that are used as flame retardants), and contain no ozone depleting chemicals, formaldehyde, mercury, lead, or heavy metals.
"We have been working on a number of new memory foam formulations over the last 18 months, and we not only wanted to insure that of new memory foam products meet high comfort and durability standards, but equally addressed environmental and low emission standards as well," said Robert O'Connell, Soft-Tex's executive vp of sales and marketing.
