It is everyone's consensus to choose solid wood furniture when buying furniture. Does solid wood furniture contain formaldehyde? Does solid wood furniture release formaldehyde?
One. Does solid wood contain formaldehyde?
Formaldehyde is everywhere. Formaldehyde is a kind of pure natural product, why is it called pure natural? Because formaldehyde is commonly found naturally in nature, living organisms, including trees, animals and humans, all contain formaldehyde. Therefore, the solid wood itself contains formaldehyde, but the formaldehyde content is very low and can be ignored.
Two. Does solid wood furniture contain formaldehyde?
As mentioned above, solid wood contains formaldehyde (very low content), so solid wood furniture also contains formaldehyde. The statement that solid wood furniture has 0 formaldehyde is not accurate. The level of formaldehyde content in solid wood furniture is not determined by the material itself.
The source of formaldehyde in furniture is mainly glue, adhesive and paint used in the furniture production process. Therefore, the level of formaldehyde content in solid wood furniture is related to the production process. The glue, adhesive, and paint used in the production process have high formaldehyde content, and the formaldehyde content of solid wood furniture is naturally high; on the contrary, the formaldehyde content of solid wood furniture is naturally low.
In summary, solid wood furniture contains formaldehyde and also releases formaldehyde. The level of formaldehyde content is determined by the production process. When choosing solid wood furniture, you still have to keep your eyes open and learn more about the qualifications, scale, and credit of each manufacturer.
Three, why choose solid wood furniture?
Furniture boards generally include solid wood board, density board, large core board, particle board, plywood, etc. In addition to solid wood boards, adhesives are used in the production process of other boards. Therefore, in terms of the raw materials of furniture, solid wood panels have the lowest formaldehyde content; other panels have higher formaldehyde content than solid wood panels.
In conclusion, it is relatively safer to choose solid wood furniture, but the release of formaldehyde is not ruled out.
