WASHINGTON (November 15, 2012) - Members of the  Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council include U.S. producers or distributors of chemicals and equipment used to make polyurethane or manufacturers of polyurethane products.
The following statement is attributed to CPI:

"Health and safety are priorities for the entire spray polyurethane foam industry. That is why CPI offers free and extensive information on spray foam health and safety considerations to homeowners, contractors and anyone else interested in spray foam. We encourage anyone interested in learning more about spray polyurethane foam to visit to take advantage of these resources.

"Spray foam can provide enormous benefits to homeowners, especially in places like Florida where climate control and moisture concerns are significant. Spray foam is a highly effective insulation material and has a unique ability to fill the gaps that can be difficult to seal and allow air to escape. Using spray foam to seal air leaks can help manage moisture and humidity in a building. By controlling moisture, spray foam can limit one of the key variables that can lead to mold and mildew growth.

"If a homeowner or contractor has questions related to a specific spray foam product, they should contact the manufacturer for more information."
