New York - A New York law firm said it is investigating claims for a class-action suit against Demilec (USA) llc over 'toxic' spray polyurethane foam insulation.
Demilec USA of Arlington, Texas, manufacturers and distributes spray polyurethane foam (SPF) insulation known as Sealection 500 and Sealection Agribalance throughout the US. Demilec also trains and certifies various distributors in the application of the SPF product used in residential homes.
The SPF is designed to become inert and non-toxic after installation.
However, Seeger Weiss claims that in some instances the product "remains toxic after installation" and that it has caused "property damage and health hazards" in homes where it has been installed.
The law firm argues that certified installers have "failed to abide" by the product's application standards.
