Chlorinated Tris, also known as TDCPP, is a chemical that has been used for years as an additive flame retardant in polyurethane foams, resins, plastics, textile coatings and rubber. In use since the 1960s, chlorinated Tris in children’s pajamas was banned in the late 1970s due to concerns over its mutagenic properties.
“In recent years, there has been growing public concern about this chemical’s use and specifically its presence in products made for children and babies,” reported Paul Cochrane, President of Cochrane and Associates, the company behind the IAQ Video Network and the new public outreach video. “It is believed that over time, the chemical can escape from the products and attach to common household dusts. Children and others may then be exposed by breathing aerosolized dusts or touching contaminated surfaces. We hope this video helps to educate people about this controversial flame retardant.”
