Teragren's proprietary manufacturing adhesive emits less formaldehyde than allowed by U.S. OSHA, European E0, CARB Phase 1 and CARB Phase 2, and Japanese JIS/JAS (F☆☆☆☆) emissions standards. Many products available NAF (no-added formaldehyde) and NAUF (no-added-urea formaldehyde).
To confirm that our products consistently meet our specifications, we periodically test our products by utilizing an independent testing laboratory in the United States. The test used to determine formaldehyde off-gassing is the "Large Chamber Test for Formaldehyde Emissions" and is run in accordance with ASTM E1333.
