Formaldehyde Gas Detectors

Formaldehyde is a preservative used in a wide range of different environments, including predominantly medical laboratories, mortuaries, and elsewhere. On its own, formaldehyde is colorless although it has a very strong odor. Although we normally think of formaldehyde as a liquid, it can also be experienced in gas form.

When it comes to industrial-grade fungicides, germicides, and disinfectants, these are some products where formaldehyde is commonly used. It can also be found in other chemicals, particle boards, household products, glues, permanent press fabrics, paper product coatings, fibreboards, and plywood.
