Parisot has always led the way in reducing levels of formaldehyde emission from boards. We had already attained E1 for our manufacture by 1996, whereas all our colleagues (excepting German companies) were still at E2. The move to E1 for everyone became obligatory only in 2006.

Since August 2009, all Parisot board output has complied with the E1/2 threshold (also called E½).

Formaldehyde is one component of the glue used to produce particleboards. A small quantity of formaldehyde may be released by the board following its manufacture.

Formaldehyde contents :

  • E2 boards contained between 8 and 30 mg of formaldehyde per 100 g of board.
  • The E1 boards have a content of less than 8 mg.
  • E1/2 boards have a content of less than 4 mg.
  • The Parisot Corbenay - CFP site also has CARB1 and CARB2 certification, issued by the FCBA (Forêt Cellulose Bois-Construction Ameublement), itself accredited by a Californian inspection body. This standard is currently the strictest.


For formaldehyde emissions :

  • CARB1 boards: emission of less than 0.18 ppm (ASTM 1333 American chamber method).
  • CARB2 boards: emission of less than 0.09 ppm.


All boards used on the Parisot Site of Saint-Loup and Parisot Site of Mattaincourt, with the exception of some supplies outside the group, are E1/2 or CARB1 as a minimum.


Green Way enables us to guarantee boards and furniture with low emissions.
