The vast majority of our products are constructed from E0 Board. Laminex EO is medium density fibreboard (MDF) that emits a level of formaldehyde well below the workplace exposure limit set by the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission.
Formaldehyde is a colourless strong smelling, naturally occurring gas which at high concentration, can cause eye, nose and skin irritation. Some people are very sensitive to formaldehyde while others are for the most part, unaffected.
Products that meet the E0 formaldehyde standard set by The EWPAA (Engineers Wood Products Association of Australasia) have less than 0.04 formaldehyde parts per million (ppm).
Laminex EO is a commercially viable & environmentally friendly product. Our E0 range is manufactured in Gympie on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. BFX is committed to ensuring the indoor air quality of classrooms and workplaces remains clean and safe.
