Spray Foam Insulation Hazards
Sealection and other Spray Foam Insulations are polyurethane foams created by the chemical reaction of two sets of highly toxic compounds brought together in a spraying apparatus. These products must be handled by an installer who applies the material into the attic (or similar) areas of a home while wearing protective gear and a breathing apparatus.
Chemical used in Sealection Spray Foam Insulations include methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), which has been recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as being toxic to humans. Other chemicals in Sealection are not disclosed because they are deemed “trade secrets,” but the manufacturer’s product sheet lists them as classified by OSHA as hazardous and causes of skin, eye, respiratory, neurological issues. Spray Foam Insulation products also typically contain known carcinogens such as Formaldehyde and other Volatile Organic Compounds that can be emitted after installation. Flame retardants in such products may also include Chlorinated Tris, a known carcinogen that has been banned in children’s products.
Exposure to these chemicals may result in serious health problems, including:
- Skin irritation
- Eye, nose and throat irritation
- Breathing problems
- Lung Damage
Once applied, the chemicals in Sealection and other Spray Foam Insulation products are supposed to become inert and non-toxic. But based on homeowner complaints, even when installed according to manufacturer standards, Spray Foam Insulation may remain toxic and hazardous to residents of the homes where these products are installed.
