    Our company has a plastic type roof material installed over a roof in Hawaii. The material has begun to crack and our chemical analysis of it shows the existence of limonene on the material. The buidling owner thinks that the material has cracked because of some kind of influence of the monkey pod trees around it. I looked up limonene on the internet and it has a citrus make-up. I wanted to know if anyone has had a similar experience. Also, is limonene a by-product of monkey pod trees or did it show up in our analysis from somewhere else? Thank you in advance.
