Wood-based panels - Determination of formaldehyde release - Part 1: Formaldehyde emission by the chamber method

Status: Valid

This European Standard specifies a chamber method with three options of test chambers for the determination of the formaldehyde emission from wood-based panels in terms of the steady-state concentration in a climate chamber under defined conditions, which relate to typical conditions in real-life. This chamber method can also be applied to the estimation of formaldehyde concentrations under various conditions in practice, by the use of mathematical models.
This standard can also be used for the testing of formaldehyde emissions of products other than wood-based panels.
