Spray Polyurethane Foam Lawsuits

spray polyurethane lawsuit

Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is typically used to insulate buildings and close cracks in walls.  SPF can be applied as wall insulation, roofing, and sealant, and is also used to manufacture household goods, such as mattresses and car seats.  The use of SPF has increased dramatically in the past decade.  However, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns that many of the chemicals used in the production of SPF present significant health dangers to those who are exposed to them.

What is Spray Polyurethane Foam?

SPF consists of two liquids, referred to as side “A” and side “B.” The liquids are combined to initiate a chemical reaction that produces foam.  Side A is made from highly reactive chemicals known as isocyanates which have been found to cause medical conditions, such as asthma and other respiratory problems.  People who come into contact with isocyanates in occupational settings are advised to wear protective clothing. The CDC is investigating the chemicals and the risks associated with Side B.
 
What is Happening with Spray Polyurethane Foam?

Although SPF is marketed as a safe form of insulation, it contains a number of toxic chemicals that can lead to serious health conditions.  Homeowners who are exposed to isocyanates during the installation process and continue to be exposed to chemicals found in SPF are at risk of developing respiratory, neurological, kidney, and liver damage, as well as cancer.  If the SPF is improperly applied and cured, homeowners may suffer from these conditions long after installation is complete.

The EPA has warned that individuals with skin and respiratory conditions, allergies, asthma or isocyanate sensitization should carefully consider the risks of using SPF products given their susceptibility to complications from contact with these chemicals.  Isocyanate is the leading chemical linked to the development of asthma in the workplace.  For sensitized individuals (those who become allergic to isocyanates), there is no safe level of exposure to isocyanates.  For those who are not sensitized, the chemicals in SPF may still lead to permanent lung damage and respiratory illness after prolonged exposure.
