Low grade manufactured rubber flooring products can sometimes include the following which can be harmful to human health;
Formaldehyde = colourless gas and has a characteristic, pungent, irritating odour. Due to its toxicity and volatility, exposure to formaldehyde is a significant consideration for human health. It is known to be a human carcinogen.
Phthalates = is a plasticizer commonly used to soften PVC. Phthalates are being phased out of many products in the United States, Canada, and European Union over health concerns. Phthalates are easily released into the environment because the bond is weak between the Phthalates and plastic of the PVC. As the plastics age and break down, the release of Phthalates accelerates. High levels of Phthalates have shown to change hormone levels and cause birth defects.
Lead = regarded as a heavy metal. Lead, at certain contact degrees, is a poisonous substance to animals, including humans. It damages the nervous system and causes brain disorders. Excessive lead also causes blood disorders in mammals.
VOC = Volatile Organic Compounds = are organic chemicals that have a high vapour pressure at ordinary, room-temperature conditions. Most scents or odours are of VOCs. Some VOCs are dangerous to human health or cause harm to the environment. Anthropogenic VOCs are regulated by law, especially indoors, where concentrations are the highest. Harmful VOCs are typically not acutely toxic, but instead have compounding long-term health effects. Because the concentrations are usually low and the symptoms slow to develop.
