Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air pollutants are a silent threat, often two to five times higher than outdoor pollutant levels. There is growing concern about the harmful effects of formaldehyde vapors, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), and Heavy Metals. These harmful irritants are found in traditional solvent based finishing materials.
Low Emitting Materials
When formaldehyde is present in the air at or above 0.1 ppm, acute health effects can occur including watery eyes, burning sensations in the eyes, nose and throat, nausea, coughing, chest tightness, wheezing, skin rashes, or even more several ailments if neglected.
Partnerships with third-party Green accrediting organizations are critical. The Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) lends credibility and ensures accountability regarding a manufacturer’s commitment to environmentally responsible forestry practices.
