Formaldehyde-Free Board - Great News for the Air We All Breathe
On average, a person inhales 10 cubic meters of air per day.
Formaldehyde, also known as methanal, is a chemical compound recognised since the mid-19th century. It is gas with a very characteristic smell (a strong pickle-like odour). One 35-40 per cent solution in water is called formalin. Formaldehyde itself is widely used, in branches of various industries. It is used, among others, for the production of urea-formaldehyde, and phenol-formaldehyde resins. They are used as a binder in the production of wood-based boards, such as MDF, HDF or plywood.
Numerous tests have been made and information collected, in a research conducted on the content of formaldehyde on various premises. The results show that each cubic meter contains several dozen to several hundred micrograms of formaldehyde. This compound is passed through the breathing lungs of people staying in rooms with furniture containing formaldehyde.
Boards without formaldehyde make the air, on our premises, cleaner and healthier.
