In chemistry, a 40% formaldehyde (CH2O) solution is called Formalin.


Recently, it has been found that the fumes given off by phenol resin based adhesives have become a big problem. In a state of solution, Formaldehyde irritates the skin and hardens it until it cracks, and can cause ulcers. In its gaseous state, it irritates the eyes and when inhaled, the mucous membranes, causing coughing fits. Chronic effects include hepatic (liver) and renal (kidney) disorders.

Where is Formaldehyde found?

Where is it found? Formalin is used as a raw material for various resin compounds, for sterilisation procedures, as a disinfectant, and antiseptic, and in biochemical laboratories. Besides environmental measurement at various types of manufacturing facilities, measurement inside residential premises is quite common.
