The product is GreenTag GreenRate Level A Certified under Scheme A7.
The scope of certification includes Taralay Premium Comfort vinyl flooring in 2mm thickness.
Issues of Concern/Red Lights: The product uses an expanding agent which contains ADCA (CAS number 123-77-3). ADCA is categorised with R42 (may cause sensitisation by inhalation) and R44 (risk of explosion if heated under confinement). It is also on the Candidate List of Substances of very high concern for Authorisation. ADCA is used to produce foam backing via purposeful reaction. This ingredient is encapsulated with the final flooring product, so there is very rare chance that end uers will be irritated by inhalation.
The risk is more likely to happen during the manufacturing process of foam backing and expanding agent itself. Gerflor and its expanding agent supplier provided sufficient evidence that the occupational risks are mitigated. The products have successfully passed the relevant GreenTag Standard's Cautionary Assessment Process and no issues of concern or red lights comments exist regarding the toxicity of the products
