Abstract

Aim of study: Although treated panels make up a large portion of the plywood market, treatment with some wood preservatives has been known to cause some problems such as bonding failures besides the environmental pollution related to the disposal of chemicals after treatment. Formaldehyde release from wood based panels is also another problem regarding the indoor air quality. In the present study, it was aimed to investigate the formaldehyde emission contents of plywood panels treated with fire retardant chemicals.
