Laboratory analysis and determination of formaldehyde contents

Your needs : to detect and inspect the presence of formaldehyde in your industrial products

Formaldehyde, also known as methanal, is used as a colorless gas or aqueous solution for its flammable, disinfectant, preservative properties… With a wide variety of uses, it is regularly found in the textile, wood (adhesive or binder) and building industries (insulating foam) or in hospitals (disinfectant).

However, formaldehyde is also known for its irritating effects on the respiratory system and the eyes. Classified since 2004 as a “human carcinogen” by the IARC, exposure to formaldehyde in indoor and outdoor environments is strictly regulated.

In light of this, you are looking for a laboratory capable of detecting the presence of formaldehyde in your products or in your environment in order to confirm that your activities comply with regulatory standards.
