States Industries now uses 100 percent soy-based, formaldehyde-free resins in lamination process.
States Industries, an Oregon-based manufacturer of decorative hardwood plywood, has converted 100 percent of its production to the use of soy-based, formaldehyde-free resins.
States says it has steadily increased the use of soy-based adhesives over the last five years and, prior to this conversion, employed it in 60 to 65 percent of production. Naturally occurring trace levels of formaldehyde are present in all organic materials including wood, but States’ laminating adhesives will not add to those levels, according to the company. States’ Elemental brand will be used to designate products as "No-Added-Formaldehyde."
