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.
Risks related to formaldehyde can vary however it is highly toxic to all animals, regardless of what form the exposure takes. If it’s ingested in a water form, formaldehyde is extremely corrosive. It’s also a sensitizing agent in gas form which can cause a negative immune system response and presents as a cancer hazard. Subsequently, ingestion of a 30 ml solution containing 37% formaldehyde has been reported to cause death in an adult human.
