Unreacted Diisocyanates in Spray Polyurethane Foam and
Action from California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC)

In March 2014, the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) listed Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) Systems containing “unreacted” or “wet” diisocyanates as a test case for its new Safer Consumer Products Regulation. Diisocyanates are well-studied and regulatory limits exist for MDI, a diisocyanate, used in SPF.


The Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) of the American Chemistry Council serves as the voice of the polyurethanes industry in North America, promoting its development and coordinating with polyurethane trade associations across the globe.

CPI’s members include the nation’s leading suppliers, producers and distributors of chemicals and equipment used to make polyurethane and manufactures of polyurethane products.

CPI helps build a stronger foundation for polyurethane chemistry by advocating for science-based research, reinforcing the industry’s commitment to environmental sustainability, fostering product health and safety and supporting outreach and education.

The polyurethanes industry supports research and initiatives that serve its communities and customers.

The business of polyurethane is a $20 billion enterprise and a key element of the U.S. economy. The industry directly employs more than 202,000 Americans and operates in more than 950 locations across the United States. A major job creator in the United States, each job in the polyurethanes industry yields four more jobs indirectly.

CPI and its predecessor organizations have represented the American polyurethanes industry for more than half a century. As society and the economy change, CPI will continue to adapt and advance to meet the needs of the polyurethanes industry for the next 50 years.
