This resin contains one-tenth the free formaldehyde of previous systems resulting in reduced emissions during composite manufacturing while maintaining the reliable performance of phenolic resins.<br /> <br /> Find out more about the benefits of engineered wood as featured in the case study here:&nbsp;<a target="_blank" href="https://www.americanchemistry.com/Sustainability/More-with-Less-Case-Study.html?utm_source=linkedin&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_campaign=Sustainability&amp;utm_term=&amp;utm_content=#Study2">http://bit.ly/2xk2Ebg</a><br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.americanchemistry.com/Sustainability/More-with-Less-Case-Study.html?utm_source=blog&amp;utm_medium=website&amp;utm_campaign=Sustainability&amp;utm_content=%23Study2" class="btn-blue">Read Study</a>
