EUGENE, OR - States Industries, the Eugene, OR-based manufacturer of decorative hardwood plywood, has converted 100 percent of their production to the use of soy based, formaldehyde free resins. States has steadily increased the use of soy based adhesives over the last five years and prior to this conversion employed it in 60 to 65% of their production.

“States’ total commitment to formaldehyde free resins reflects market demand for superior operational and environmental performance.” according to Mike Taylor, President and COO of States.

Naturally occurring trace levels of formaldehyde are present in all organic materials including wood, but States’ laminating adhesives will not add to those levels. States’ Elemental brand will be used to designate products as No-Added-Formaldehyde.
