The Pillow of Health(TM) Earns CertiPUR-US(R) Seal For Its Flexible Polyurethane Foam

SAINT CHARLES, Ill., Sept. 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JBT Specialty Products, LLC is proud to announce that foam in The Pillow of Health™ products has earned the CertiPUR-US® seal from the Alliance for Flexible Polyurethane Foam, Inc. (AFPF). The company earned the designation for its foam by using only flexible polyurethane foam that has been approved by an independent laboratory where it was analyzed, tested and certified to meet specific criteria for physical performance, indoor emissions and environmental stewardship.

The Pillow of Health is an innovative, premium quality adjustable pillow that has a zipper opening on the side to allow users to add or remove the medical grade filling to achieve the desired level of comfort and support. The Pillow of Health is antimicrobial, hypoallergenic, dust mite resistant and machine washable and dryable.

The Pillow of Health uses only CertiPUR-US® certified foams across its entire line of products. CertiPUR-US® certified foams are low-VOC emission materials (for improved indoor air quality), and made without formaldehyde, mercury/lead/heavy metals, PBDEs, ozone depleters or prohibited phthalates. The environmentally innovative foam is emissions-tested, and durability-tested, and also contains no chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).

"Our customers are as concerned with what's inside their pillows as they are with how they feel and hold up over time," said JBT Specialty Products, President/Founder John Rukel. He adds, "The CertiPUR-US® seal is an important designation in our industry as it provides our customers and retail partners independent verification that The Pillow of Health's high-resiliency polyurethane foam passes rigorous quality assurance and product safety standards. We pride ourselves with producing products that use the healthiest materials available." Angelo Rukel, Vice President of JBT Specialty Products, added, "Our customers have purchased The Pillow of Health products to help them experience a more restful night's sleep and they also want peace of mind that our products are safe, comfortable and environmentally responsible. The CertiPUR-US® designation puts us in an elite class of manufacturers that are offering products that contain foam that has cleared the most rigorous and comprehensive international guidelines for foam."

According to Mike Shell, JBT Specialty Products Supply Chain Manager, the CertiPUR-US program is an extension of the European CertiPUR program developed in 2002 by EUROPUR, the association of European flexible polyurethane foam block manufacturers. "CertiPUR-US® is a voluntary program developed to help build consumer confidence in home furnishing products containing foam cushioning materials. We are extremely pleased to have The Pillow of Health products qualify its high-resiliency polyurethane foam products with the CertiPUR-US® label."
