Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation (UFFI) is a type of insulation that was widely used in the 1970’s for insulating older residential buildings.
The use of a urea formaldehyde-based resin in the manufacture of UFFI can lead to the release of formaldehyde gas during the curing process and afterwards. Health Canada has concerns about the health of people exposed to formaldehyde. Formaldehyde emissions decrease over time.
UFFI has been prohibited in Canada since December 1980
