Release of formaldehyde
The amount released in Easy Plancia is excellent as per analyses carried out in compliance with UNI EN 71721996.

The Regulation 11622-1
This standard defines the minimum requirements for surface protection treatments of wood and / or wood-based floors and of coatings similar to them, such as the walkable surfaces of wooden staircase, to be used for indoor environments, as well as the methods and criteria of verification of the performance of a lacquering cycle applied to a standardized support.
Original Parquet has obtained, for its own lacquering cycles, the maximum degree of suitability with regard to a surface protection treatment: “High attendance”
The compounds that belong to this category are more than 300. The best known are aliphatic hydrocarbons (form nhexane, to nhexadecane and methylhexane), terpene, aromatic hydrocarbons, (benzene e derivates, toluene, oxylene, styrene), halogenated hydrocarbons (chloroform, dichloromethane, chlorobenzene, etc.), alcols (ethanol, propanol, buthanol e derivates), esters, ketone, and aldehyde (amongst which formaldehyde). Exposure to VOCs can cause chronic and acute effects. According to the concentrations, acute effects may include eye, nose and throat irritation, headache, nausea, vertigo, asthma. Exposure to high concentrations of these chemical compounds can cause chronic effects such as kidney damage, liver damage and damage to the central nervous system, cancer. People who are more inclined to get sick are those with respiratory problems, children, the elderly and people who are sensitive to chemical compounds.

99.99% BACTERIAL LOAD REDUCTION.
For its wooden floorings Original Parquet developed finishing varnishes with hygienic activity reducing the bacterial load to a 99.99%. The biocide action can result through the interaction with biological target structures, or through interferences in the cell metabolic and energetic processes; in other words blocking the bacteria’s breathing provoking its death as a consequence. The wooden floors treated with these varnishes enable to have a first precaution in case there is need to reduce bacterial contamination in a short time, especially when it might be very difficult to guarantee a deep cleansing due to the position of the base itself or in public environments where an immediate hygienic action may be necessary. The treatment is particularly suitable for wooden floors in houses or environments with pets.

Original Parquet, always committed to finding products with the best characteristics, has developed protection varnishes that enable the wooden floor to be very resistant to abrasion. The company is equipped with a TABER test equipment that determines and certifies an abrasion resistance coefficient of each product. Thus MaxFORT, a highly resistant finishing suitable for high treading civil and public environments, with was created. This treatment is obtained through the use of aluminium oxide and nanotechnologies.
