FAQ ABOUT HALLMARK FLOORS and TSCA Title VI Compliant
Is Hallmark TSCA Title VI Compliant compliant for formaldehyde emissions?
Hallmark Floors takes pride in the fact that from our inception, indoor air quality has been a very high priority. Our manufacturing process is closely monitored and third party certified. We pride ourselves as being a cutting edge company when it comes to having obtained world class, low-formaldehyde emissions. In fact, Hallmark has been producing product that met the TSCA Title VI Compliant standards in 2008, a year prior to the CARB I standard and three years prior to the TSCA Title VI Compliant standards being developed and implemented.
OSHA – the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration guidelines allowed for more emissions than were permitted in Europe and Japan. Hallmark felt the most responsible thing to do for our customers was to emulate the more stringent international standards, E-0.
On January 1, 2009 the State of California (California Air Resource Board) implemented the CARB I standard of 0.08ppm (parts per million emission) for engineered hardwood flooring and hardwood plywood.
On January 1, 2011 TSCA Title VI Compliant was fully implemented at a maximum emission rate of 0.05ppm, which is lower than the International Standard E-0. TSCA Title VI Compliant is 15.5 times lower than the federal guidelines as determined by OSHA (0.775). TSCA Title VI Compliant is much closer to the rate of normal air quality ranging from 0.03ppm to 0.08ppm. Formaldehyde at these levels is naturally occurring, with higher levels typically in urban areas. To be completely Formaldehyde free is impossible given that plant matter naturally contains these trace amounts. The real point of TSCA Title VI Compliant is to ensure that engineered wood products are not pushing levels past the acceptable standards of nature.
