What is the difference in the Technical Guidelines for Slabstock and Molded Foam?

The criteria for certification is nearly identical. One difference is in the sample size and (for those certifying molded foam) there is a possibility that in order to provide the 15” x 15” x 4” sample, a special mold might need to be made. The other difference is that certification of a biobased molded foam is not currently available.
