Floral Foam Products
Our floral foam is based on inert phenolic resin technology, the same chemistry used for the handles of kitchen cookware. When made into cellular floral foam, our resin is fully polymerized and reacted with only small traces of free acid (much lower than cola beverage products) which may be neutralized by adding water.
Smithers-Oasis was the first in our industry to eliminate the use of freon from floral foam production. Moreover, we've successfully reduced our volatile organic compound emissions (VOCs) by more than 85 percent over the past 25 years.
In addition, OASIS Floral Foam MaxLife, our most popular product, now has enhanced biodegradability. It has been shown by ASTMD5511 to biodegrade 25 percent within 18 months in biologically active landfills.
