So in the process of wifey geting me some lincoustic RC, the vendor who would supply it for her asked her what it was for. When she explained to line up a wall from floor to ceiling in the basement, The vendor explained that is shouldnt be exposed. It could cancer.
I was curious so i started doing some research. and even found this JM pdf regarding Linacoustic.
Page 2 had me a tad concerned when i read
"When subjected to high heat and humidity, this product may release formaldehyde gas. Formaldehyde is irritating to the eyes
and respiratory system and may cause cancer (based on animal studies)."
LINACOUSTIC RC MSDS.pdf 157k .pdf file
Now i know we have all types of fiberglass in our household like insulation in walls and ceilings and what not but these are covered by sheetrock most of the time. But im concerned that the Linacoustic when used to cover screen walls is usually just exposed and open. Only covered by a false wall and AT screen.
Then again isnt this stuff used to line the INSIDE of ducts which would get hot and even humid inside? That would make no sense no?
I'm so confused now. Anyone care to shed any light on this?
