Do ARK engineered floors have acceptable VOC levels? Is there a way to find out what glue they use?

Asked by Nick D.

I called them and couldn't get an answer other than their products meet California standards.

Hello Nick,

Try and contact the manufacturer again and request a copy of the MSDS (Manufacturer Safetly Data Sheet) report.

Since this is an engineered floor they need to publish it since there are glues and finished which could be harmful if ingested during the installation process.

These reports list all of the materials and the levels of VOC in grams/liter for the finishes used.
