Formaldehyde Testing

Formaldehyde is a colourless chemical used in older building materials as a preservative or disinfectant. Under various climatic conditions formaldehyde can be released giving rise to adverse respiratory and sensory health effects. For individuals and companies involved in the refurbishment and demolition industry, particularly of older building stock, the early identification of formaldehyde within specific materials will allow for the correct management and actions prior to works commencing, thus reducing the potential for exposure and harm. EnviroHive are able to test for formaldehyde in the following building materials:

  • UFFI foam ( cavity wall insulating)
  • UF Foam
  • Adhesives, Mastics, Glues
  • Older timber products

Samples of the materials in question are taken and through laboratory testing results are produced to show if formaldehyde is present and in what quantities, typically in percentages, ppm or mg/kg.
