Description

Formaldehyde is an organic compound with the formula CH2O. It is mainly used in the production of industrial resins but has been found to be used as a preservative, disinfectant and biocide. Because of its toxicity and volatility formaldehyde poses a significant risk to human health. Attogene test uses the property of formaldehyde to react with the Formaldehyde Reaction Powder (FRP) to form a purple-red tetrazine. The formaldehyde concentration is measured by visual comparison of the reaction with the color scale derived from the Color Card.

  • Resins used in the manufacture of composite wood products (i.e., hardwood plywood, particleboard and medium-density fiberboard)
  • Building materials and insulation
  • Household products such as glues, permanent press fabrics, paints and coatings, lacquers and finishes, and paper products
  • Preservatives used in some medicines, cosmetics and other consumer products such as dishwashing liquids and fabric softeners
  • Fertilizers and pesticides
