Formaldehyde analysis for wood-based panels: New standard ISO/DIS 12460-2:2023

ISO/DIS 12460-2:2023 – Wood-based panels – Determination of formaldehyde release –  Part 2: Small-scale chamber method

The new ISO standard offers a wide range of possible combinations of the equipment available in a laboratory and the analytical methods used, thanks to the new concept based on the “construction kit”. In this training we present the new standard and explain possibilities of application.

The ISO standard describes the most important methods known worldwide for formaldehyde analysis and includes the laser as a new method for the determination of formaldehyde in air. 

For the first time, an ISO standard describes the procedure and the establishment of the correlation for calculating the formaldehyde limit between the reference test chamber method and the applied method for factory production control ("Quality Control Limit": QCL) by means of statistical data evaluation.
