LEED Project Description:

    Columbia has converted all of its hardwood plywood facilities to a proprietary formaldehyde-free manufacturing system called PureBond®. Cost-competitive with the similar urea formaldehyde (UF)-made hardwood plywood, Columbia's PureBond® formula is derived naturally, then enhanced with a proprietary resin, giving it particularly strong bonding and wafer-resistance qualities. And better yet, it enables Columbia to completely eliminate formaldehyde from its standard veneer-core decorative panel production. In line with a growing focus on indoor air quality within the architectural community, Columbia's formaldehyde-free decorative panels are also compliant with the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standards.

    Varied core options, such as No Added Urea Formaldehyde (NAUF) particleboard and MDF (medium density fiberboard), can be used to manufacturer hardwood plywood. Use of such composite core options will allow contribution to LEED® MR 4.1 & 4.2 Recycled Content.

    Wurth Wood Group obtained Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification in July 2007. All of our wood-based locations carry the FSC Multi-Site Chain of Custody SW-CoC-002475 and can provide FSC lumber upon your request. Chain of Custody certification ensures that materials are tracked throughout the production process so that end customers can be confident of the sourcing of the wood that they select.

    Skyblend™ Melamine is available using a 100% recycled particleboard core with no added urea formaldehyde. Decorative melamine panels consist of melamine and resin saturated decorative papers, thermally fused under heat and pressure to a substrate of Roseburg UltraBlend particleboard and Synergite MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard core). The thermally fused melamine (TFM) process permanently bonds the paper and the board.

    The melamine products have Green attributes that carry over from the aspects of standard particleboard and MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard). The standard industrial particleboard and MDF promoted are EPP certified to be 100% recycled wood fiber and CARB certified to meet the low emission levels and regulations for the state of California.

    Roseburg SkyBlend™ Particleboard is a leading Green particleboard panel. It is Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) certified to be 100% recycled wood fiber particleboard, with no urea formaldehyde added during the manufacturing process.  Engineered to the highest quality standards, Roseburg SkyBlend provides customers with the most desired properties in this eco-friendly particleboard. Third party testing verifies SkyBlend™ particleboard's formaldehyde emissions are (0.00 - 0.01 ppm), no greater than levels occurring in outdoor ambient air conditions. These emissions compare favorably with agri-fiber products and wood based composite panels using MDI resin.

    The Titebond Heavy Duty Construction Adhesive is solvent-free and uses a low-VOC formula that provides a safer and healthy working environment and installation envrionment.  The corrugate cartridges for the adhesive are made from post-consumer recycled material to further reduce environmental impact.

    The Titebond Low VOC Painter Plus Caulk is solvent-free and uses a low-VOC formula that provides a safer and healthy working environment and installation envrionment.  The corrugate cartridges for the caulk are made from post-consumer recycled material to further reduce environmental impact.
