Regulatory Compliance

Because it is environmentally benign, ecomate® complies with all current — and most likely all future — regulations pertaining to foam blowing agents. As additional HFCs and other harmful materials are phased out, ecomate® will continue to be the reliable and affordable solution for foam blowing applications. Current regulatory compliance includes:

  • U.S. EPA SNAP Program
  • Montreal Protocol
  • Kyoto Protocol
  • RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directive
  • WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive
  • GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe)
  • REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals)

Since 2003, ecomate® has been classified by the U.S. EPA as an acceptable alternative to a wide range of environmentally damaging blowing agents under its SNAP program. See links below to the official EPA documents in the U.S. Federal Register.
