Formaldehyde Certification

Formaldehyde (or formalin) is a substance used in the production of many glues and resins which, in turn, are also used in the processing of wood panels.
Panels produced in this way can release molecules of formaldehyde in gas form which, in large concentrations, may be harmful to man.


Scavolini has always placed considerable focus on this theme, manufacturing products with the lowest possible formaldehyde emissions.




To this end, Scavolini guarantees (as certified by the Cosmob Qualitas Praemium – Formaldehyde Certification) that all composite wood products and materials used:

  • are class E1, as required by Italian Ministerial Decree 10/10/2008
  • comply with the requirements of the EPA TSCA Title VI regulations (USA legislation) and CARB ATCM Phase 2 regulations (Californian legislation), i.e. panels that have ultra-low formaldehyde emission levels (approximately half the level of an E1 panel).

Furthermore, Scavolini does even more by using Idroleb Ecological Panels for the structure of all its kitchens as well as many other elements, which are made 100% from post-consumer wood and with the lowest formaldehyde emissions, with values that are even lower than the limits set by the strictest Japanese standard F**** (4 stars)
