NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard is FSC® certified (Forest Stewardship Council) and Eco-Certified Composite (ECC) by the Composite Panel Association (CPA). It contains 100% recycled and recovered wood fiber (pre-consumer), which saves trees.
NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard uses a process whereby no formaldehyde is added with the soya resin. The result is a product that is environmentally friendly and exceeds the CARB Phase 2 standards.
NU Green SOYA is NAF / ULEF certified (Ultra Low Emission Formaldehyde) by the CPA. This designation, determined by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), is intended only for products with formaldehyde emissions that are below 0.04 ppm. NU Green SOYA is consistently below 0.00 ppm.
NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard can help you achieve up to six LEED® points, based on the NC-2009 (USGBC), and up to four LEED points with the new LEED V.4 version (available in 2015 in Canada).
NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard is available through our extensive network of distributors, making it readily available in all major markets. NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard is available in our full collection of melamine colours and is manufactured with the same standards as our other panels, so you benefit from the same quality and product consistency that has become synonymous with Uniboard® and can be ordered in the industry's largest selection of sizes and thicknesses.
Use of the soya based resin binding system in the manufacture of NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard may result in differing cutting, drilling, routing and glueing procedures from those used with standard particleboard. Although generally unproblematic, we recommend that you test NU Green SOYA NAF / ULEF particleboard prior to full-scale production.
