Artcare foamboard

I have a question about the Artcare foamboard
<URL:> with microchamber
technology. Is it safe to use in a preservation framing package? The
core is polystyrene and the offgassing from it has been a troubling
question for me as to if it is safe even with the zeolite
microchamber covering. The thickness and ease of using the foamboard
is great and a lot of framers, from what I understand, are using it
as "archival" backing board. If a paper conservator could shed a
little light on this I would really appreciate it.
