Houston, Texas -- Sinomax USA, a manufacturer of memory foam bedding products, has earned the CertiPUR-US seal from the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam, Inc. (AFPF), an 11 Feb company statement said.
Sinomax voluntarily submitted its flexible polyurethane memory foam to an independent laboratory where it was tested and certified to meet specific criteria for "physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship," the company said.
"The CertiPUR-US designation puts us in an elite class of manufacturers that have cleared the highest international guidelines for foam integrity," said Steve Romero, vice president of marketing at Sinomax.
Bob Ludeka, AFPF executive director, said the CertPUR-US programme is an extension of the European CertPUR programme developed in 2002 by Europur, the association of European flexible polyurethane foam block manufacturers. The qualification of Sinomax, Ludeka said, "reinforces the programme's global potential." (RD)
