KASTAMONU Confirms Environmental Quality of MDF and HDF Boards

24 september 2018

KASTAMONU has confirmed the validity of international certificates attesting to the high environmental quality of products with minimal formaldehyde content. The audit was conducted with respect to the validity of such compliance certificates as CARB (California Certificate), IOS-MAT-0003 Attestation, E1 and CE.

Following the results of the audit carried out by one of the most famous independent world laboratories Fraunhofer (Germany) it was found that KASTAMONU manufactures products with formaldehyde content of not more than 8 mg / 100 g of board. The certificates guarantee KASTAMONU customers that the products comply with all European standards.

"The development of export routes for the supply of products requires the company to comply with strict requirements in the field of quality and ecology, and to go through certification. Our achievement in the Russian and European markets is that all boards are guaranteed to comply with the E1 emission class. In addition, the company is constantly developing new methods for reducing formaldehyde in boards, which allows us producing MDF / HDF boards with the E0.5 emission class - up to 4 mg / 100 g," said Ali Kılıç, General Director of KASTAMONU in Russia.

The compliance of KASTAMONU products with necessary qualitative characteristics is regularly confirmed by certificates of conformity at the level of Russia, as well as in the neighbouring countries and EU (CE certificate of conformity). This work carried out at the enterprise allows creating competitive advantages of the product in foreign markets.
