Formaldehyde-Free and No-Added Formaldehyde Resins

Formaldehyde-Free resins

The decades of GP Chemicals experience in developing and applying formaldehyde base resins makes us perfectly suited to develop alternatives to formaldehyde for those markets, such as insulation, that are seeking other solutions. We know what is required to meet a customer’s needs and have harnessed our resources to develop products that will meet processing demands and end-users’ requirements.

LEAF FREE™ patent-pending thermosetting resins feature formaldehyde-free chemistries to replace traditional phenol-formaldehyde (PF) insulation and urea-formaldehyde (UF) glass mat resins. They are designed for non-woven residential and commercial & industrial (C&I) insulation including fiberglass and mineral fiber applications.

These resins provide manufacturers with a formaldehyde-free binder system designed to reduce emissions, be easy-to-use, easy-to-store and requiring no capital investment for retrofitting. They may contribute toward points in green building rating systems such as LEED®, CHPS®, and REGREEN®.

Our product and applications development in this area is on-going as we continue to develop innovative and customized options for our customers.
