Hi, has anybody used R-TECK's Expanded Polystyrene boards? If so - any comments.

DOW "blue board" does not seem to be available here in Humboldt county,CA.

Thanks for any help in advance......Herb.

According to Insulfoam's MSDS sheet it is comprised of the following:

(The MSDS sheet which I'll link, is divided into two main categories, Non-Hazardous Components and Hazardous Components. On the Non-Hazardous Components side we have)...

Polystyrene CAS# 9003536  <92%

(Then on the Hazardous Components side)...

Pentane      CAS# 109660                         <2%

Polymeric film (no CAS registry # is given)   1-3%

Bromine Flame Retardant CAS# 3194-55-6 <1%

Incidentally CAS# 3194-55-6 is registered as Hexabromocyclododecane. And is the very chemical being banned globally.
