Incoming Raw Materials

  • Batch numbers of the incoming raw materials are checked and recorded.

  • All delivered raw materials come with certificate of analysis (CoA) report.

  • CoA are stored and kept for reference.

  • Delivered materials come with expiration dates.

  • Expiration dates of raw materials are recorded and constantly monitored.

  • Temperature of the delivered materials are inspected and recorded.

  • Supplier is keeping retains of delivered raw materials (min. 6 months).

  • Foam producer is verifying the properties of the raw materials according to the requirements of the TDS or CoA.

Storage of Chemicals

  • Materials are stored according to the requirements indicated in the technical data sheet or MSDS (within the maximum and minimum temperature, within the expiration date requirements, free from contamination, etc.).

  • First in-first out rule (FIFO) is being practiced.

  • No leakage in the storage tanks and pipes connecting to the storage (pay particular attention to isocyanates storage tanks).

Foaming Process

  • Each foam type produced has its own process scheme (instructions on how to produce including recommended process parameters and troubleshooting schemes).

  • Isocyanate index within the recommended range (100-120 for STD and HR).

  • Safety protocols in place for isocyanate index <100 like visco and low density/hardness (fire safety, foam separation, extinguishers, etc).

  • Water level of all recipes not more rhan 4.8 php

  • Amount of additives used in the foaming are regularly monitored/recorded (manual or automatic recording is acceptable).

  • Speed of foaming line is regularly recorded.

  • Metering pump output of all the raw materials are constantly recorded.

  • Temperature of polyol and isocyantes are within the recommended workable range.

Curing Stage

  • Curing time for all standard foams are at least 12 hours (check records).

  • Curing time of all HR foams are at least 12 hours (check records).

  • Curing time of VE foams and other specialty foams are at least 24 hours (check records).

  • Temperature of the foam cores are monitored per batch and kept under control for max 165 C.

Conditioning Stage

  • Conditioning time for all standard grade foams is at least 48 hours (check records).

  • Conditioning time for other foam types (HR, visco, plush, etc.) is at least 72 hours (check records).

  • Conditioning time for pre-pressed/compressed foams is at least 72 hours (check records).


  • Foam producer has a built-in foam crushing procedure (includes compression rate different foam types).

Product inspection

  • Foam producer verifies the physical-mechanical properties of the foam according to IoS Mat 0076 requirements (each batch, average from top, middle and bottom samples of the foam block).

  • All foam tests and results are logged and can be readily available to IKEA upon request.

  • Equipment and tools used in the verification of foam quality are regularly calibrated (check calibration records or stickers in the instruments).

Foam Transport, Storage and Handling

  • Foams are stored and kept in such a manner wherein they are isolated from other potential sources of VOC and odor (smoke from emissions of forklift, machines, etc.)

  • Foams are stored in an area where it is not directly exposed to sunlight, heat and water.
