The furniture has a taste, is it formaldehyde?

Many new furniture will have a strong taste! Is it really formaldehyde? Is it really a quality problem? Actually, what is the truth?


1. The taste of wood


The wood itself must have a taste. Naturally produced wood must contain volatile oils, gums, aromatic oils or other substances that have their own unique taste depending on the species.


2. The taste of paint or paint


Paint is the main source of odor. Wood-made furniture surfaces must be painted, not only for decoration, but also as a protective layer for furniture surfaces. Whether the paint is good or bad, there will be some substances such as formaldehyde and benzene as the matrix. After finishing the paint, the high-quality paint takes about 2 to 3 weeks to volatilize most of the harmful volatile substances.


In addition to formaldehyde, there are many factors that release taste, such as TVOC, benzene, xylene, etc., which also cause a strong odor. Therefore, if the furniture tastes heavy, it cannot be judged simply that the amount of formaldehyde released exceeds the standard.
