Formaldehyde-free wood-based panels and their products
Formaldehyde-free means no formaldehyde is added in production.
The change of consumer demand is leading the supply transformation and upgrading of three kinds of wood-based panel products, which are embodied in quantity, quality, performance, production mode and production and consumer concept. The formaldehyde emission limit value of wood-based panel products has been further reduced. The new standard better meets the requirements of upgrading the consumption demand of wood-based panel products, and has received a positive response from many wood-based panel manufacturers.
Wood-based panels are the most basic materials in the decoration industry. The development of wood-based panels is conducive to alleviating the contradiction between wood supply and demand, and is an important way to save wood resources. However, the problem of excessive formaldehyde often exists in furniture and flooring produced with wood-based panels, which threatens human health and environmental quality.
Is formaldehyde-free the real “zero formaldehyde”? This formulation is too absolute, because wood itself contains a certain amount of formaldehyde, so there is no real concept of formaldehyde-free. The “formaldehyde-free wood-based panels” mentioned in this standard refers more to the addition of formaldehyde-free, that is, formaldehyde is not added in the production process.
There is a very popular saying on the market that everyone says that their products have reached zero-grade, four-star, German standard, American standard and so on. How much do they really achieve? Consumers can’t see the product. Therefore, the records of production enterprises are required to be fair, open and traceable. Only in this way can we be accountable if problems arise. Therefore, there are stricter requirements for factory record information, requiring enterprises that produce formaldehyde-free wood-based panels to do so.
