CARB 2 Compliance
A recent news story has highlighted a major retailer’s laminate products, and elevated the issue of formaldehyde content and emissions in laminate products. The state of California issued this standard in 2008, and made it more stringent in 2012. It forces the reduction of formaldehyde emissions from wood composite products such as laminate flooring. While all wood products contain a natural level of formaldehyde, high levels can be considered harmful.
Since the story came out, I contacted each of our laminate suppliers. All of them issued a formal response to this inquiry, which has been posted here. Based upon these statements, I am confident that all of the laminate we sell complies with CARB II requirements.
