Plate furniture problems, more solid wood furniture is sought after
"Now I often see that the formaldehyde is not qualified. The sheet furniture is cheaper, but I always feel that the solid wood is more reassuring." Miss Li recently convinced her family to buy nearly twice as much budget as she bought the table. A set of solid wood dining tables and chairs. The reporter visited the home store and found that under the impetus of low-carbon and environmental protection concepts, solid wood furniture was once again sought after by more and more consumers, re-emerged with new vitality, but the price also rose. Pure solid wood furniture is favored by reporters in major home stores. Solid wood furniture is rich in materials, including various types of mahogany, eucalyptus, ash, pine and so on. Due to the formaldehyde release problem caused by the use of adhesives for sheet furniture, environmentally conscious consumers have turned their attention to solid wood furniture. The sales data of national mall furniture released by Red Star Macalline shows that in the furniture category sold in the first half of the year, the sales of solid wood furniture increased rapidly, and the furniture of board wood fell significantly. â€œIn fact, I personally prefer some solid wood furniture.â€ Miss Li loves the set of log-colored pine furniture in the home store. â€œThis style and texture are more desirable to me.â€ She said that the family also had different opinions and felt that The decoration furniture will also be updated in a few years.

She said that although there is a special test for formaldehyde release, it is "too troublesome, and If we are not professionals, we will calculate a test report for me. I don't necessarily understand it." Regarding Ms. Liâ€™s opinion, the salesperson of the brandâ€™s solid wood furniture deeply agrees that â€œonly our pure solid wood furniture can dare to say that it has zero formaldehyde. As long as the plate is used, there is adhesive, so itâ€™s not sure. ". However, the reporter also found in the home store that the price of many brands of solid wood furniture has risen, and even some brands are not pure solid wood. Some of the plates are also advertised as solid wood furniture, or a series of them, most of which are solid wood. Individual components are used in panels and are also commonly referred to as "solid wood series". According to the "General Technical Conditions for Wood Furniture" standard, solid wood furniture is usually divided into three categories: pure solid wood furniture, solid wood furniture and solid wood veneer furniture. Only all the furniture made of solid wood can be called pure solid wood furniture; solid wood furniture is also called wood and wood combined with furniture, that is, the table top, table (chair) legs and other frames are made of solid wood, side panels, bottom, top, partition and other parts. Furniture made of wood-based panels (density boards, particleboards, etc. are all made of wood-based panels); solid wood veneer furniture is made of wood-based panels, and the surface is decorated with solid wood veneers. Parents of solid wood children's furniture are willing to "pay the bill" "Other rooms may be used to buy some piece of furniture. The premise is that the brand is more trustworthy. However, for children's room furniture, we must choose pure solid wood." Mr. Ma said. He believes that formaldehyde that may exceed the standard in the plate is particularly harmful to children, so it is especially cautious. "There is not much need for furniture in children's rooms anyway. The price of solid wood is expensive. The key is to use it with confidence." It is understood that children's room The main source of pollution is reflected in children's furniture. The crux is mainly plate furniture and surface paint. Parents need to pay attention to the fact that formaldehyde, benzene and other low standards will also affect the health of children, especially children under 5 years old.

At present, most of the plate-type children's furniture materials on the market are medium-density boards and particleboards, and only some well-known children's furniture brands use laminated materials such as pine. â€œBecause of the large amount of binder used in MDF and particleboard, the health problems of harmful substances such as formaldehyde in children's furniture are more serious than other furniture,â€ said industry insiders. In addition, the brighter the color of the paint, the more heavy metals such as lead, which are mainly caused by the lead compounds contained in the paint. Professionals remind consumers to buy children's furniture, first of all, pay attention to whether the material is pure solid wood or board and wood combination, there are many gaps between the two prices; secondly, pure solid wood furniture should also pay attention to whether all the used wood is used to prevent the parts It is mixed with bargains; in addition, children's furniture should pay attention to safety issues such as edge, tip and opening and closing, and it is best not to choose a style that is too fancy and bright. Five strokes teach you to buy furniture to smell: the wood furniture currently on the market, in addition to all solid wood furniture, most have wood-based panel parts. Therefore, you should especially smell the smell when you purchase. If you make people cry and sneeze, it means that the formaldehyde emission of furniture is relatively high and should not be purchased.

The national standard "Limits of Hazardous Substances in Wood Furniture for Interior Decoration Materials" stipulates that the amount of formaldehyde released in wooden furniture shall not exceed 1.5 mg per liter. Ask the price: Most of the wood furniture with excessive formaldehyde is cheap man-made boards, so the price of the whole set of wooden furniture is often â€œultra-lowâ€.
