At The Vita Group, we recognise our responsibility to maintain safe and proper chemical selection and usage, on behalf of our customers. We work to improve the chemical profile of our products and see it as an integral part of our service – we take care of the chemistry, so our customers don’t have to. Therefore we want to clarify to our employees and customers about the flame retardants used in foam furniture components, especially about what we do and don’t use in our products.

We do not use any TDCP or TCEP in our comfort foam products which go into sofas and beds. And beyond that we are actively using our advanced materials science and innovation skills to develop products that do not use these at all. In 2019 we introduced a range of Combustion Modified Ether (CME) foam products that have been formulated without TCPP – our ‘FRee’ foam range. The foams in this award-winning FRee foam range achieve the high standards of fire safety required by UK and Irish regulations, without compromising on technical performance or chemical safety, and we are proud to be the first UK company to offer these products to the furniture and bedding industry.

You can find out more about this product, which won the prestigious National Bed Federation Innovation of the Year Award for 2019/20, here.
