Ecology and Environment
The environmental compatibility of our products results from the input of materials such as natural timbers, glue systems with an extremely low content of formaldehyde and a gentle, ecologically path-breaking manufacturing process. Final products can be composted and thermally used.
Primary ProductsDomestic timbers are used for the production of HDF/MDF HOMADUR®, especially roundwood and scrap wood from sawmills.
AdhesivesAdhesives, which belong to the group of duroplastic glues, are used; that means that they are reactant adhesives such as urea formaldehyde condensates or mixed condensates based on urea, melamine, phenol, and formaldehyde. All glues we use are "E1"-adhesives.
LacquersThe "Aqueous dispersion paints" used for lacquering are protected by "AC-UV lacquer".
Manufacturing ProcessHDF/MDF HOMADUR® is produced in the environment- friendly dry process. After heating the chipped timbers under pressure and temperature with subsequent defibration, the moist woodfibre that contains adhesives is gently dried in a warm air stream. Further processing - pressing in the hot press - is carried out dryly. The exhaust vapours emerging from the process of drying and pressing are passed onto an air washer, especially developed for this purpose. Wastewater resulting from this will be cleaned and re-used. The substances remaining after the manufacturing process can be materially and thermally almost completely re-used.
Disposal of HDF/MDF HOMADUR® after useHDF/MDF products can be incinerated without problems because they are not treated with PVC or halogen-organic substances.
To customer specification we manufacture a FSC® certified wood fiber board.
For the production of HDF/MDF HOMADUR® we only use domestic timber from sustainable forestry, namely thinning wood and scrap wood from the saw mill industry.
We strictly exclude buying wood from the following sources:
- Wood from illegal and predatory cutting
- Wood from forests where civil and traditional rights are violated
- Wood from high conservation value forests
- Wood from genetically modified trees
- Wood from natural forest clearance
On customer request we produce a PEFC certified wood fibreboard.
Quality and quality assurance is part of our company philosophy.Since 1995 Homanit is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001. Our german plant in Losheim as well as the polish plants in Krosno and Karlino are certified in accordance with the latest ISO 9001:2015.
Homanit has been certified according to CARB (California Air Resources Board), Table 1 93120.2 Phase 2 since October 2008.
