If the adhesive is excessive or doesn't meet the requirements, it is easy to cause formaldehyde to exceed the standard. In addition, in order to prevent the mat from mildew and achieve the anti-corrosion effect, some manufacturers soak the bamboo in the chemical liquid, resulting in excessive adhesion of adhesive, and then formaldehyde to exceed the standard.
Some bamboo mat and rattan mat manufacturers, in order to increase the glossiness of the mat, may brush a layer of paint or clear oil on its surface, resulting in formaldehyde in the mat.
