The objective of this study was to develop an environment-friendly adhesion system for particleboard using tannin-based resin. Tannin-based resin was used in the surface layer of particleboard to replace urea-formaldehyde resins. In addition, the additive with various content ratios in particleboard 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 would significantly be increased. Manufactured boards containing additive above 3 wt% 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.
