San Diego, California – The US Polyurethane Foam Association’s fall member meeting addressed topics including flammability, the environment and industry regulation.
More than 120 representatives from foam manufacturers, chemical suppliers and other companies supporting the industry discussed key issues and new technical developments within the flexible polyurethane foam industry.
The association’s president, NCFI Polyurethanes’ Chip Holton, said that in the past year, PFA has helped the industry address critical issues that could have required significant and expensive changes in foam production.
‘By working together through PFA, we can have much more impact than individual member companies working alone,’ he said. PFA has also built coalitions with other industry groups, as well as public interest organisations such as firefighters and environmental advocates.
‘We support good science and provide clear communications across industries so flexible polyurethane foam is properly understood,’ Holton said. ‘This benefits everyone.’
