Abstract

Exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets have been used as an additive for the improvement of a variety of properties. Nowadays, it is used as an adsorbent for pollutants, especially volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde. Additionally, exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets have been used as an additive in wood composites, because wood composites have a higher thermal conductivity than timber or typical wood-based panels. Therefore, exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets have been applied to high-density fiberboard which is a core material of wood flooring for the emission rate reduction of volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde and for increasing the thermal conductivity of wood flooring in radiant floor heating systems. Volatile organic compound emissions have been reduced significantly in wood composite boards according to the addition of exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets. The properties of formaldehyde emission and thermal conductivity decreased when 2% exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets are added to high-density fiberboard. However, these properties increased with the increase in the addition of exfoliated graphite nanoplatelets from 2% to 4%.
