Fire retardants used in the mattress industry

June 15th, 2011

Fire retardants used in the mattress industry – specifically, the fire retardants used in many of the all-natural latex mattresses.


From RMM

All mattresses on the market are required to withstand a 2-foot wide blowtorch open flame for a period of 70 seconds, as of 2007. For cost reasons, many of these manufacturers opt to use toxic fire retardants that contain a combination of the following:

Boric Acid (reproductive and developmental toxin, used as a pesticide)
Antimony (causes heart and lung damage, possible carcinogen)
Decabromodiphenyl Oxide (causes hair and memory loss, possible carcinogen)

Not us!

In contrast, natural latex mattresses are all-natural and provides the same safety standards without compromising on quality or safety. The Rocky Mountain Mattress latex mattress lineup uses a fire retardant made up of:

Wool
Cotton
Wood Pulp
Natural Silica
