The world’s most advanced MDI adhesive is used in the non-formaldehyde panels, the adhesive itself does not produce formaldehyde release, coupled with the main material of the panels for the solid wood fragments or powder, the detected formaldehyde emissions from the production of products is negligible, almost negligible.
Even after the process of veneering and sealing, the formaldehyde emission of formaldehyde free panels does not exceed 0.2mg/L, and the European standard of E0 level is 0.5mg/L. This new material has more advantages in environmental protection and safety.
