Foam manufacturer Solberg introduces environmental warranty

Published:  09 October, 2013

Warranty stipulates Re-Healing foam will not be restricted due to the presence of organohalogens and will not be banned by regulators or government entities for a range of environmental issues.

Solberg will warrant purchasers of Re-Healing foam concentrate, that for 20 years after the purchase, whether as part of a foam/water fire protection system or as foam concentrate only, the use of Re-Healing foam will not be restricted in any way due to the presence of any organohalogens, whether in surfactants, polymers, or any other form.

The environmental warranty also includes the provision that Solberg Re-Healing foam concentrate will not be banned by any governmental entity or regulatory body for any of the following environmental issues:

  •  No Governmental restrictions related to the presence of fluorine
  •  No persistence in the environment
  •  No bioaccumulation
  •  No PFOS or PFOA
  •  No biodegradation into PFOS or PFOA

Should environmental regulations enacted after the purchase of Re-Healing foam require removal of the Re-Healing foam concentrate from the market for one of these environmental issues, Solberg will replace the Re-Healing foam concentrate with a new foam concentrate that meets such newly enacted environmental regulations.
