Original reclaimed wood meet the new formaldehyde limits

at

Our original reclaimed wood laminated products meet the new formaldehyde limits in accordance with the German Chemicals Prohibition Order (ChemVerbotsV).

With regard to the German Chemicals Prohibition Order annex 1 (to annex 3) (ChemVerbotsV BGBI I S.94), coated and uncoated wood materials sold on the market from 01 January 2020 must meet the limit values of 0.1 ppm and 0.124 mg/m3 required for emission class E1. According to the Federal Gazette, published by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection on 26 November 2018 (Banz AT 26.11.2018 B2), the results generated by applying EN 717-1 must be multiplied by a factor of 2.0.

Using a standardised procedure, Holzforschung Austria analysed our laminated wood products for formaldehyde emissions in accordance with Austrian standard ÖNORM EN-717-1 using the acetylacetone method.

In the case of the original reclaimed wood laminated product analysed, values of 0.01 mg/m3 or 0.008 ppm are achieved.

These therefore meet the requirements of the German Chemicals Prohibition Order and correspond to emission class E1.
