LEAF® GB resins may be melamine-formaldehyde (MF), melamine-urea-formaldehyde (MUF) or phenol-formaldehyde (PF) formulations and can be used in tandem with GP® scavenger systems.

LEAF GB resins are designed for wood composite manufacturers and their customers who want to pursue green building programs in addition to helping to meet CARB Phase 2 emission requirements. GP Chemicals works with manufacturers to find products that are compatible and cost-effective with their process to help meet these requirements.

The LEAF GB PF resins, which are no-added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) formulations and LEAF GB MUF resins can contribute toward Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) credits. LEAF GB resins can also help meet other green building requirements such as GREEN GLOBES® and the National Green Building Standards® of the National Association of Home Builders.
