Formaldehyde Testing Results
Shown with the report below, Uptown Floors submitted 3/4 inch engineered samples to HPVA Laboratories in Reston, Virginia for formaldehyde testing. HPVA is one of several independent testing laboratories that offer accredited certification programs.
California Air Resources Board - CARB 2 Compliance
CARB2 has become the benchmark in formaldehyde levels. It has become the norm that many refer to when it comes to amount of formaldehyde acceptable in wood composite products which also includes engineered hardwood flooring. CARB2 has limits set at 0.05 PPM (parts per million)
Uptown hardwoods significantly exceeds levels of 0.05 PPM with a testing result of 0.01 PPM (lower) in CARB2 compliance. Learn more here
BLQ= Below level of quanitification indicates not detectable within the parameters used. IE: Does not test for levels under 0.01
