Enviro Floors will prepare your timber deck surface before applying our Enviro Deck finish to your deck. Just as you wouldn’t wax your sports car without thoroughly washing it first, you shouldn’t apply any sort of coating on a deck without adequate cleaning. Timber decks need regular maintenance, otherwise they risk becoming discoloured and affected by moisture, weathering and disintegration.
Enviro Floors commitment is to never produce any solvent borne coatings and in particular never to use any class 2 carcinogenic Toluene Diisocyanate, TDI.

Solvent and/or Isocyanate exposure is medically linked to:

Chronic and Acute Asthma.
Sleep Apnoea.
Aggressive Behaviour.
Pregnancy Failure as result of male partner exposure.
Memory Loss.
Cancer in humans and animals.
Peripheral nerve conditions.

Enviro Floors products are classified as non-toxic requiring no personal protection from fumes during normal use.

All solvent borne products are classified as toxic in that they require respirator use in their normal use.

Normal cartridge respirators do not work for class 2 carcinogenics contained in most solvent borne Polyurethanes.

All cartridge respirator manufacturers and major manufacturers of solvent borne Polyurethanes clearly state that the only respirator to use for guaranteed TDI protection is a full face forced air type.
Australian law states that “All companies using solvent based floor coatings must use this type of equipment in your home !

What are TDI and related compounds?

Tolulene diisocyanates (TDI) and related compounds are generally high production volume chemicals, meaning they are produced or imported in to the United States in quantities of 100 million pounds or more each year. These chemicals are predominantly used in the production of polyurethanes and consumer products, such as coatings, elastomers, adhesives, and sealants.

What action is EPA taking?

EPA is proposing a Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This proposed SNUR would require manufacturers (including importers) and processors of TDI and related compounds in consumer products to notify EPA at least 90 days before starting or resuming uses of these chemicals. This notification allows EPA the opportunity to evaluate the intended use and, if necessary, take action to prohibit or limit the activity. For this proposed SNUR, EPA will have the opportunity to evaluate new or resumed use of the chemicals at greater than 0.1% in coatings, adhesives, elastomers, binders, and sealants in consumer products including imported consumer products. For all other uses in consumer products, EPA would have the opportunity to evaluate new or resumed use of the chemicals at any level.

Why is EPA concerned about TDI and related compounds?

Exposure to TDI and related compounds is well known to result in skin and lung sensitization among workers and has been documented to cause asthma, lung damage, and in severe cases, fatal reactions.
While the majority of polyurethane products containing TDI and related compounds undergo “curing” (hardening) prior to reaching the consumers, some polyurethane products such as coatings, sealants and adhesives may be sold and used in an uncured form, increasing exposure risks for consumers.
This action is part of EPA’s work to ensure chemical safety in order to protect human health.

What chemicals are in the proposed SNUR?

There are seven TDI and related compounds in this proposed SNUR:
Toluene diisocyanate trimer (Benzene, 1,3-diisocyanatomethyl-, trimer, CASRN 9019-85-6)
Poly(toluene diisocyanate) (Benzene, 1,3-diisocyanatomethyl-,homopolymer, CASRN 9017-01-0)
Toluene diisocyanate dimer (1,3-Diazetidine-2,4-dion3e,1,3bis(3-isocyanatomethylphenyl)-, CASRN 26603-40-7)
Toluene diisocyanate “cyclic” trimer (1,35-Triazine-2,4,6(1H,3H,5H)trione, 1,3,5-tris(3-isocyanatomethylphenyl)-, CASRN 26603-40-7)
2,6-Toluene diisocyanate (Benzene, 1,3-diisocyanato-2-methyl-, CASRN 91-08-7)
2,4-Toluene diisocyanate (Benzene, 2,4-diisocyanato-1-methyl-, CASRN 584-84-9)
Toluene diisocyanate unspecified isomers (Benzene, 1,3-diisocyanatomethyl-, CASRN 26471-62-5)
