Reduction in formaldehyde emission liberation from urea formaldehyde due to Closite Na+ addition


Author(s): N Ismita, Manish Ranjan, Prashant Semwal and Arun Prakash

Abstract: The study investigates the role of nanoclay (Closite Na+) in lowering the formaldehyde liberation from the particle boards. Closite Na+ was added in various concentrations (0%, 1%, 3%, and 5%) to urea formaldehyde (UF) resin. Particle boards were prepared with the resin and placed in desiccator for formaldehyde measurement. Formaldehyde emission was measured for boards with and without nanoclay loading levels as per Japanese standard 1460 (2001). It was observed that with addition of Closite Na+ there was noticeable reduction in formaldehyde emission from boards. Lowest emission was observed in the test samples with 1% nano-clay loading.
