Description

Baltix’s BioSurf surfaces are made from a soybean- and corn-based polymer adhered to no-added-formaldehydeChemical found in many building products; most binders used for manufactured wood products are formaldehyde compounds. Reclassified by the United Nations International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2004 as a “known human carcinogen." MDF. BioSurf is available in a wide variety of colors and faux wood designs and can be ordered with custom graphics that are printed onto the back of a thick, clear wear layer using a large-format printer. The wear layer provides more wear, scratch, impact, and stain resistance than standard high-pressure laminates, based on third-party testing. BioSurf surfaces are available with the company’s BioEdge edge banding and FSCNonprofit organization that promotes forestry practices that are sustainable from environmental and social standpoints; FSC certification on a wood product is an indicator that the wood came from a well-managed forest.-certified MDF.
