EGGER melamine boards and worktops from Nikpol have been endorsed by the Sensitive Choice program, making them ideal for creating healthy environments.

Developed by the National Asthma Council Australia (NAC), the Sensitive Choice program encourages manufacturers and distributors of products to be sensitive to the needs of those suffering from allergy and asthma conditions. The program also helps allergy sufferers make better lifestyle choices with their recommendations.

Allergies can be triggered by high levels of pollutants from VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) such as formaldehyde found in wooden building materials. These VOCs often cause respiratory issues in people, especially in asthmatics and the elderly.

EGGER melamine boards and worktops have formaldehyde levels lower than E0, F**** (0.3mg/l) making it the lowest level of formaldehyde to be used in the manufacturing of wood based products in Australia.
