Formaldehyde (or formalin) is a substance used in the production of many glues and resins which, in turn, are also used in the processing of wood panels.
Panels produced in this way can release molecules of formaldehyde in gas form which, in large concentrations, may be harmful to man.
Scavolini has always placed considerable focus on this theme, manufacturing products with the lowest possible formaldehyde emissions. To this end, Scavolini:
guarantees that all the products and materials used to make them are class E1 as required by Italian Ministerial Decree 10/10/2008 and as certified by the Cosmob Qualitas Praemium – Formaldehyde Certification
has, since 2009, used Idroleb Ecological Panels for the structure of all its kitchens as well as many other elements, which are made 100% from post-consumer wood and with the lowest formaldehyde emissions, with values that are even lower than the limits set by the strictest Japanese standard F**** (4 stars)
when the F**** panel cannot be sourced, uses panels that are CARB2 compliant: in other words panels that have ultra-low formaldehyde emission levels (approximately half the level of an E1 panel), in accordance with the provisions of the CARB institute appointed for the reduction of formaldehyde emissions in composite wood products sold in California (USA).
