PlybooPure is Formaldehyde Free

January 1, 2008

With its partners in China and Taiwan, Smith & Fong has spent over $500,000 in equipment and technology to produce the formaldehyde-free products, according to president and founder Dan Smith. Isocyanurate is very stable once it has cured but is highly reactive in the factory and therefore a threat to workers. The new facility will have “all things that you’d expect in a Western-style environment,” said Smith, in response to questions about worker safety. “People will be working with ventilator headsets” to provide an extra margin of safety, he added. PlybooPure flooring should be available at little or no upcharge, according to the company, but the plywood panels will cost more.
