Eco Panels for Healthy Living
Wheatboard is made from recycled wheat straw fiber, glued with MDI makes you feel healthy as your heart (MDI implemented in heart valves).
According to the National Panel Testing Center, formaldehyde emissions for this product have been measured at 0.02 mg/L, which is 1 tenth of the amount allowed by the European E0 standard. This minimal emission comes from organic substances contained in the straw stalks.
The eco friendly adhesive MDI, has strong reactivity so that it may react with straw cellulose molecules to form company, irreversible new chemical bonds, working as powerful bonds within the board. Because of how the polymers unite together firmly and steadily, MDI has been widely utilised in the automobile industry to make bumpers, brake pads, dampers, and more. Therefore, Ecoboard has the benefits of hard texture, stable shape, higher strength and great skill in bearing weight and resisting deformation.
Large quantity of natural wax layer applied to the surface of the straw fiber has a damp proof effect for Ecoboard, like the paraffin additive in damp proof slab. Additionally, MDI itself plays an important part in producing waterproof coating and sealant. After MDI reacts with straw fibers, the polymer composite structure formed in the reaction has great hydrophobic properties. Consequently, Wheatboard isn’t easily absorb moisture. Furthermore, its volume tolerance after being affected with dampness is superior to ordinary artificial boards.
Straw fiber comprises a great deal of silicon dioxide, which is a natural fire-proof material. Relevant test result also show that this product, even in without including fire retardants, could satisfy the requirement of B2 instead of C for ordinary boards. When Wheatboard is on fire, it can only become carbonized, as opposed to dispersing to other objects.
