Environmental Profiles of Chemical Flame-retardant Alternatives for Low-density Polyurethane Foam
This report summarizes the toxicological information for alternatives to pentaBDE. Volume 1 contains the purpose and scope of the assessment, a description of the general characteristics of flame retardants, a general overview of exposure pathways and routes for flame retardants used in flexible polyurethane foam and the results of the assessments of 14 formulations of flame-retardant products most likely to replace commercially available pentabromodiphenyl ether (pentaBDE). Volume 2 contains the detailed chemical hazard reviews that serve as the basis for the summary assessments in section 4 of volume 1.
