Two New Formaldehyde-Free
Particleboard Options From Collins
The Collins Companies has introduced two varieties of particleboard that utilize a formaldehyde-free polymeric MDI (pMDI) adhesive: Collins Pine FreeForm® Particleboard and Collins Pine Particleboard. The new products are created using a more efficient manufacturing process that produces a board with extreme moisture resistance and enhanced physical properties.
Both Collins Pine FreeForm and Pine Particleboard are CARB Phase 2-Certified, available moisture resistant, contain 100 percent post-industrial wood fiber, have excellent machinability (therefore extending tool life) and contain exceptionally high pine content. In addition, they are manufactured to reduce carbon emissions and eliminate human exposure to hazardous chemicals. Collins Pine Freeform is also FSC-Certified.
Four years ago, as part of its commitment to providing safe, sustainable wood products, The Collins Companies dedicated itself to manufacturing a particleboard product with pMDI that improves the air quality in homes, schools and buildings. To accomplish this, a research and development team was formed to develop a quality particleboard product with no added formaldehyde. The result – a dense, strong particleboard, free of added formaldehyde and consistent in color and texture--represents the fulfillment of this goal.
