Raw Material Form

Raw Material Form

The Raw Material Form is an unscored Production Stage indicating the physical form of the Raw Material Source before it is initially processed.This Production Stage is unscored because its impacts are already included in the raw material stage and there is currently no differentiation among the different forms’ environmental impacts.

If the Raw Material Form is not known, then the default selection should remain unchanged. Adjusting processes in this Production Stage will not change the scores or the impacts of a customized material.

  • Pellets is the default selection and should be selected when the Raw Material Source is initially processed from solid pellets and/or when the form of the Raw Material Source is unknown.
  • Flake should be selected when the Raw Material Source is initially processed from solid material flakes.
  • Liquid should be selected when the Raw Material Source is initially processed from liquid state. Polyurethane foam processed onsite from isocyanates and polyols is an example of when Liquid should be selected.
