UFFI Laboratory Test


In this test, our laboratory detects traces of Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation in your sample. Please note that this is no a DIY or Sampling Kit. You will need to send your sample to our lab for analysis.

Sample of the foam will be tested by our laboratory in London, Ontario, Canada, using a modified method NIOSH 3500. The test confirms if the sample is indeed the UFFI or not.  The report will be sent to you by email. Please make sure that you check the sampling and shipping tabs on this page. Select number of samples that you want to test and the turnaround time to place your order.



Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation (UFFI) was introduced as an affordable home insulation. Liquid pre- polymer was injected into voids between walls, where it solidifies into foam providing additional insulation to older buildings. Soon it was discovered, that UFFI slowly breaks down producing carcinogenic gas formaldehyde.

Since mid 1980’s the UFFI has been banned from use in Canada. If you are selling or buying an older house, it is important to check the foam insulation for UFFI.

Protect your investment into real estate and test your foam insulation for UFFI. If you have any questions, please email us at your convenience
