[China paint information] Foshan Municipal Administration for Industry and Commerce yesterday announced the quality monitoring of furniture, furniture materials and other commodities sold in the circulation field in Shunde District in the fourth quarter of 2008. A total of 70 batches of furniture and furniture materials were sold by 48 sales units, The qualified rate was 81.43%. The reason for 13 unqualified batches of products was that formaldehyde emission and heavy metal content exceeded the standard seriously

it is understood that a total of 70 batches of furniture and furniture materials sold by 48 sales units in the circulation field of Shunde District were sampled, including 20 batches of wood-based panels, 40 batches of furniture and 10 batches of leather. After inspection, 57 batches are qualified and 13 batches are unqualified, with a pass rate of 81.43%

the formaldehyde emission from wood-based panels exceeded the standard seriously.

the relevant person in charge of the Municipal Administration for Industry and Commerce said that the qualified rate of furniture and furniture materials sold in the circulation field in Shunde District, Foshan City was 81.43%, and the quality of some goods was still worrying. Among them, the quality level of leather and most furniture products is relatively good, mainly because the production enterprises have strong quality awareness, strict quality management and quality control level, advanced production equipment and production technology, guaranteed inspection means and measures, and guaranteed product quality level. At the same time, the sales units subject to inspection are all regular business places, which have strict control over the purchase channels and guaranteed the product quality. The content of toxic and harmful substances in wood-based panels and some furniture products is too high, especially the formaldehyde emission in wood-based panels and furniture exceeds the standard seriously

"among the 70 batches of samples sampled in this spot check, 11 batches of samples exceeded the standard, and the qualified rate was only 84.29%. Among the 11 unqualified batches, 6 batches of furniture commodities had the highest formaldehyde emission of 3.8mg/l (the standard requirement was ≤ 1.5mg/l), 5 batches of wood-based panels (including 3 batches of MDF and 2 batches of plywood), and 3 batches of MDF were unqualified, with the highest formaldehyde emission of 41.8mg/l (standard requirement ≤ 30.0mg/l); There are also two unqualified batches of plywood. The formaldehyde emission amounts are 7.5mg/l and 22.2mg/respectively, which will directly affect the large deformation and elongation after fracture of the test. " The person in charge pointed out that the formaldehyde emission (22.2mg/l) of plywood products sold by Longshan Jinling furniture material store in Longjiang Town, Shunde District is more than 4 times of the standard allowable value (≤ 5.0mg/l), which is very harmful to the human body

it is understood that there are three main reasons for exceeding the standard of formaldehyde. First, the manufacturer has adopted inferior boards in order to reduce costs, and the formaldehyde content in the boards is too high; Second, the adhesive contains free formaldehyde. If the edge banding process is not handled well, it is easy to cause the formaldehyde in the finished furniture to exceed the standard. Third, unreasonable sizing process and hot pressing process were adopted, and appropriate post-treatment process was not adopted after sizing

the soluble lead content of children's bedside table exceeded 36 times

it is understood that among the 70 batches of samples sampled in this spot check, 2 batches of samples were unqualified, of which both soluble lead and soluble chromium exceeded the standard value, especially sifangliang furniture in Lecong Town, Shunde District, Foshan City, which is the first "passive room" store designed and built by domestic developers according to the hot summer and cold winter climate in changsanjiao area, The content of soluble lead is as high as 3280mg/kg, more than 36 times of the standard value (≤ 90mg/kg), and the content of soluble chromium is 741.6mg/kg, more than 12 times of the standard value (≤ 60mg/kg); In addition, the bedside table sold by Guojia furniture store in Shunlian North District also exceeded the standard seriously, with the content of soluble lead reaching 783.8mg/kg and the content of soluble chromium reaching 99.1mg/kg

the Department of industry and Commerce said that heavy metals exceeded the standard mainly because furniture manufacturers did not monitor raw materials and used inferior paint. Production enterprises only need to make a little effort in raw material control and process adjustment to produce qualified products

tips

how to buy environmentally friendly furniture

the Department of industry and Commerce suggests that citizens should first look at the appearance of the product if they want to buy environmentally friendly furniture and furniture materials. The product should be flat without damage, bruise, hard injury, scar knot and other defects. The logo should be complete. High quality plates should feel dry, flat and smooth; The wood-based panel with clear texture, regular arrangement and beautiful appearance, and color coordination is preferred; At the same time, we should check the environmental protection indicators of furniture panels, and select the wood-based panels with low formaldehyde emission produced by environmental protection glue. When purchasing, consumers should identify the signs, and if necessary, check the product inspection certificate to confirm that they are environmentally friendly panels that are harmless to human body; In addition, check whether there is a corresponding inspection report for furniture and furniture materials, and ask relevant departments or experts for any questions and understandings in the inspection report; The products with clearly marked manufacturers are selected, and the vast majority of products with clearly defined factory name, address and trademark have good performance

it is reported that the administrative departments for Industry and commerce at all levels in the city will further strengthen the supervision of commodity quality in the circulation field, seriously investigate and deal with the acts of selling substandard commodities, and urge the majority of production and sales enterprises to further improve their awareness of commodity quality
