Must pass standard testing for product
cleanability. Foot traffic must be able to be
wiped away with water & household
(-20 degrees F for 24 hours) product must not break
off and become jagged and sharp in its frozen state,
potentially causing injury at specified temperatures.
This test simulates the freezing of floor
mat material left in the elements as a
potential injury hazard.
160 degrees/24 hrs.
Product must not succumb to the elements at
specified temperatures. No signs of breakdown or
liquification of materials are allowed.
This test simulates the heating of floor
mat material left in the elements (a
No trace levels of lead content are permitted.
Test used is for lead content in Plastics.
50% at 1 hour (28.9 lbs.)
50% at 24 hours (28.9 lbs.) Weight of chair or a table
is used to simulate a (4) point contact atypical of
furniture or exercise equipment. Product must retain
original shape and texture at the conclusion of
specified time limits.
Testing is to validate short term exposure
of furniture, exercise equipment, etc.
25 lb. Weight is wrapped in clean clothing articles
typically worn by children. Test clothing is agitated to
simulate typical child movement during activity.
No transfer of color allowed.

Standard testing used by manufacturer’s
of children’s/toy products.
For Toys and Child Care Articles
Tested to be free of phthalates.
Raw material composition specification as follows:
Ethylene Vinyl Acetate Copolymer
Low Density Polyethylene
60% of PE powder is recycled –
preventing material from becoming too
soft. No foam mat burs or waste chips are
permissible as a substitute. This creates
an inferior quality product which is often
accompanied by odor.
(testing by TUV
Formamide is NOT permitted as a raw material
additive. Current specification is less than 10ppm and
is below harmful levels. (ACGIH TWA 10 ppm)
The American Conference of Governmental IndustrialHygienists
(ACGIH) sets the TLVs to help evaluate workplace health hazards.
Types of TLVs for Chemicals in the Air TLV

Trace element testing for Formamide
content potentially created as a result of
the manufacturing process is to be tested
for on a regular basis by the factory and
randomly tested from the shelf as required
by major retailers.
Product must be tested for odor. No odors atypical of
Inferior products/processes are acceptable.
Inferior EVA Foam products have a
distinct odor that is readily detectable.
