BANOVA® CARB Certification

09.04.2018

3A Composites is proud to be fully approved as U.S. EPA TSCA TITLE VI-CERTIFIED MANUFACTURER for their products BANOVA PLUS and BANOVA SUPERFLEX. Again, the BANOVA product range meets the stringent emission requirements CARB NAF for Composite Wood Products.

The low emission values of BANOVA were newly approved by CARB (California Air Resources Board). All BANOVA products fulfill the highest requirements possible in terms of the emission of formaldehyde and VOC (volatile organic compounds). BANOVA is bonded using high-quality polyurethane-based adhesives that are free of formaldehyde and no formaldehyde is added in the production process so that the emission level of BANOVA is equal to nature grown wood.

For all BANOVA products, 3A Composites has been certified as CARB ATCM 93120 NAF-EXEMPT MANUFACTURER as well as U.S. EPA TSCA TITLE VI-CERTIFIED MANUFACTURER.

Bonding quality of BANOVA at a glance:

  • BANOVA is produced with formaldehyde-free adhesives (NAF)
  • Low emissions ensure a natural and healthy indoor climate
  • The requirements for low emissions of materials in buildings and vehicles become more restrictive. BANOVA fully meets all corresponding requirements
  • BANOVA is bonded according top quality standards: water boil proof bond (WBP), DIN EN 314, class 3 (marine grade)
  • Cold bonding with an anhydrous adhesive results in exceptionally flat sheets with low residual stresses

Moreover, 3A Composites owns and manages several thousand hectares of FSC®-certified balsa wood plantations in Ecuador (FSC®-C019065). The wood used for the BANOVA products comes from local plantations in Ecuador. Through its sustainable plantation management, 3A Composites ensures constant supply and long-term availability. All BANOVA products are manufactured with highest ecological and social responsibility and therefore available with FSC® certification only (FSC®-C127318).
