Abstract

The objective of this study was to develop an environment-friendly adhesion system for particle board using tannin-based resin. Tannin-based resin was used in the surface layer of particle board to replace UF resins. In addition, the additive with various content ratios in particle board was evaluated to confirm the effect of formaldehyde reduction performance by the perforator and desiccator methods. As the amount of additive was increased, formaldehyde reduction performance significantly increased. Manufactured boards containing additive above 3wt% in the surface layer satisfied grade SE0 in the results of the desiccator method. The mechanical properties of manufactured boards satisfied the minimum requisite quality standard. This study discussed the effects and possibilities of tannin-based resin to reduce formaldehyde emission in indoor environments.
