Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation (UFFI):
This form of insulation was used extensively in the 1970s. Homeowners used UFFI as a wall cavity filler (sealing crawl spaces, attics, etc.) at the time in order to conserve energy. In the 1980s, concerns began to develop about formaldehyde vapor emitted in the curing process, as well as from the breakdown of old foam. Emission rates exceeding 3.0 - 5.0 parts per million (ppm) cause a variety of adverse health effects impacting the eyes, nose, and respiratory system. Consequently, its use was discontinued. The urea-formaldehyde emissions decline over time and significant levels should no longer be present in the homes today.

Modern replacement options for UFFI include melamine formaldehyde resin, low-emission UF insulation materials, and polyurethane.
