Reduction of volatile organic compound emissions for indoor wood productsNew

Project leaders: Barry, Alpha
 

Objective:

This project will address the need for empirical data on the effectiveness of very new types of products, the nanoparticles, and to compare to commonly applied surface treatments.  Different treatment nanoparticles such as TiO2, ZnO or their modified counterparts will be evaluated for their effectives as emission barriers. Preliminary results showed UV topcoat, acrylic topcoat, vinyl resin system (ethyl-vinyl acetate), phenolic saturated film, melamine paper, wet process multi-coat, foil resin system (polyvinyl acetate) and powder coating have different emissions barrier effectiveness; UV powder, melamine and phenolic being the most effective with reducing emissions by more than 90%.

Start date: 2009-04-01 End date: 2010-04-30
