What in the heck is this all about? Formaldehyde in plywood?

Read on....

On April 26, 2007, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has passed an Air Toxic Control Measure (ATCM) that regulates the amount of formaldehyde that a Composite Wood Panel can off-gas.The regulation has two phases depending upon the type of material but the first effective date is January 1, 2009. This regulation affects plywood – both veneer core and lumber or composite core – Particle Board, MDF and HDF.To boil all of the technical jargon down, essentially beginning January 1, 2009 there is a sell through provision but manufacturers, imports, wholesalers, distributors, manufacturers, and retails will need to begin buying a third party certified (TPC) panel.

Now, relax for a moment, take a deep breath, its not as bad as it seems….there is a light at the end of the tunnel and its not the train coming toward you.

We have several manufacturers that are in the process of seeking their TPC and we are offering panels for sale now – that will comply with these regulations.

If you need assistance walking through these procedures and converting your materials……we can help!

Please contact us as soon as possible so we can start working on a configuration that will keep the “California Panel Police” off of your back….

There is much more detail in regard to this program but it’s too much information overload for the web site...
