Georgia-Pacific Chemicals has announced the launch of its LEAFTM low-emission adhesives.

Georgia-Pacific Chemicals, Atlanta, has announced the launch of its LEAFTM low-emission adhesives. These adhesives are designed to aid in complying with a variety of green building standards and the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB) Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products Phase 2 requirements. LEAF wood adhesives are designed for use in particleboard and medium-density fiberboard that is used in furniture paneling, cabinetry, and other products with composite wood parts.

The current line includes two products.  LEAF C2 resins, designed for compliance with CARB Phase 2, are easy to adapt and compatible with existing manufacturing processes. LEAF C2 resins are available in urea formaldehyde or melamine urea formaldehyde formulations. The products may also contribute to meeting green building standard requirements.

LEAF GB products do not contain any added urea-formaldehyde.  They contribute toward Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) credits and meet other green building standards. LEAF GB formulations may be melamine formaldehyde- or phenol formaldehyde-based and can be used in tandem with Georgia-Pacific’s unique scavenger systems. They can be customized to meet CARB Phase 2 requirements as well, and are compatible with existing manufacturing processes for easy substitution.
