I have received a number of queries from homeowners and homebuilders who are concerned about formaldehyde that has been used in laminates like plywood, particle board, and MDF. It’s nice to recognize a company like Columbia Forest Products, which uses formaldehyde-free technology to manufacture PureBond hardwood plywood.




 

 

Formaldehyde-free plywood from Columbia Forest Products

I have received a number of queries from homeowners and homebuilders who are concerned about formaldehyde that has been used in laminates like plywood, particle board, and MDF. It’s nice to recognize a company like Columbia Forest Products, which uses formaldehyde-free technology to manufacture PureBond hardwood plywood.

On its website, the company writes:

“Replacing traditional urea formaldehyde (UF) hardwood plywood construction with non-toxic, soy-based PureBond enables Columbia to eliminate any added formaldehyde from standard veneer-core and non-UF composite hardwood plywood core panels. That’s great news for our employees, our customers and the air we all breathe.”

Eureka to such thinking! A visit to Columbia’s gallery provides a diverse and attractively deigned sampling of works that have used PureBond plywood.

Congratulations to this company and its lead example of corporate social responsibility.
