HARDWOOD PANEL PRODUCTS WITH FORMALDEHYDE-FREE RESINS
SoyStrongTM is your mark of assurance that hardwood plywood panels from States Industries meet the most stringent standards for indoor air quality.
Veneer cored panels are free from all formaldehyde resins and are designated NAF for No-Added-Formaldehyde. MDF and particleboard substrates carrying the SoyStrong label are No Added Urea-Formaldehyde. All SoyStrong panels exceed California Air Resource Board and USGBC LEED Criteria.
States has been committed to green principles and the environment for nearly 50 years. In 2008, States introduced the industry’s first soy-bonded, no-added-formaldehyde hardwood panels under the Elemental label. To align with the company’s 50th anniversary and improvements to the formulation, Elemental was rebranded as SoyStrong. The new name reflects the company’s commitment to using high-quality, environmentally friendly, soy-based adhesives in all of its panel products.
