Safety Issues on Foam Puzzle Mat


 
Home Improvement,Advice
For years, foam puzzle mats have been the number one floor cushion in nurseries, preschools and playschools until the discovery of formamide as one of its main material. Formamide is a toxic chemical that is also known as carcinogenic, mutagenic, reprotoxic (CMR). It is a strong corrosive substance which causes skin and eye irritation when in contact or exposed to a significant volume. This same chemical is used as a softener for fabric, fibers and apparently to foams.

In addition, some foam puzzle mats are poor in quality and high static. This means, that it attracts dusts and other small particles which increases the possibility of children breathing dangerous chemicals and harmful bacteria and viruses. Since the finding of formamide in these floor cushions, varying countries performed tests to many brands to see whether they are formamide-free as they claim. In fact, some countries in Europe such as Belgium and France are thinking of banning the sale of these foam mats.

However, contrary to these safety issues made years ago, some manufacturers and researchers also prove these claims to be false. Although it now widely spread that Ethylene-vinyl Acetate (EVA) made products are harmful, this alternative material for PVC is actually approve by many international health care organizations. This basically debunks some suspicions surrounding play mats.

Despite the formamide discovery on play mats, great news is that many trusted brands of these children’s product passed formamide-free tests with negative results. Moreover, they are made of high quality materials which put parents’ worries to rest. A foam puzzle mat that is trusted and free of toxic chemicals is also mostly low static, which means it does not absorb any dust particles. So, unaware children can play on this floor cushion minus the fear of triggering asthma or irritations.

A parent’s primary concern is the safety of his children. Therefore, it is always wise to check on the materials and the manufacturer of every single product before doing the purchase. Customer service is just a dial away to answer queries so it is best to take advantage over that assistance. Buying standard and government-approved products will also benefit the entire family’s health and money.

The safety issues of foam puzzle mats may still be true; however, remember that there are also approved and toxic-free wholesale office supply brands that are made available in the market. You only have to be thorough about manufacturing details because no one wants their child crawling and rolling on hazardous floor cushions.
