Emissions testing results
Appalachian flooring is considered to have, under ASTM D6007-02, negligible amounts of formaldehyde. The formaldehyde detected during testing derives from the wood itself because all wood does contain small amounts of formaldehyde amounts so low as to not be detectable during testing. Thus the rating of negligible. The finish and adhesives used in the manufacturing of our solid and engineered flooring are considered VOC free. Our VOC emissions under ASTM 5116-09 are approximately 50 times less than the California regulations (CARB) permit. This is an extremely small amount of VOCs. The current standards for the Environmental choice program certification for flooring recommends a maximum COV count of 0.5mg/m3 and we are at 0.0115mg /m3.
We take pride in being environmentally conscious. Therefore our manufacturing process is designed to minimize production waste and to conserve valuable hardwood species for future generations.
