Arlington, Virginia - The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) and the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA) have launched an enhanced product stewardship programme to "support further understanding of the benefits of spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and its continued safe use and handling," a 31 Aug statement from CPI said.
As part of the programme, a new website, www.spraypolyurethane.com, has been launched that contains new materials, literature and posters to increase understanding of SPF product stewardship information, the statement said.
Visitors to the website will be able to download literature including an overview of SPF health and safety guidelines, information on protective equipment, typical first-aid approaches and regulations and information about "green" marketing.
"We believe this programme could not be better with the growing popularity of spray polyurethane foam as a solution for more energy efficient homes and buildings," said Neeva-Gayle Candelori, CPI director.
"As the use of spray polyurethane foam continues to increase over the coming decades, it is critical for the spray polyurethane foam industry to continually enhance its product stewardship information and outreach efforts," added Kurt Riesenberg, executive director of the SPFA. (RD)
