Many people will choose to use resin furniture, it seems that the home is very high-end, and will make the home look neat and comfortable. So, is resin furniture harmful to humans?


Resin is divided into natural resin and synthetic resin. Natural resin refers to the amorphous organic substances obtained from animal and plant secretions in nature, such as rosin, amber, shellac, etc. Synthetic resin refers to resin products obtained by chemical synthesis of simple organic substances or chemical reactions of certain natural products, such as phenolic resin, polyvinyl chloride resin, etc., where synthetic resin is the main component of plastic.

The relative molecular weight is uncertain but usually higher. It is solid, medium-solid, pseudo-solid at room temperature, and sometimes it can be a liquid organic substance. It has a softening or melting temperature range, has a tendency to flow under the action of external forces, and often shows a shell shape when it breaks. Broadly refers to a polymer or prepolymer used as a plastic substrate. Generally insoluble in water and soluble in organic solvents. According to the source, it can be divided into natural resin and synthetic resin; according to their different processing behavior, there are thermoplastic resin and thermosetting resin.

To put it simply, in our daily life, except for those inorganic materials, such as cement, stone, etc., the clothes on our bodies and the shoes on our feet are made of resin materials, and resins are high molecular organic substances.

Is resin furniture harmful to health?

Resin furniture itself generally does not have an irritating taste. There is no styrene in it, only polystyrene. Polystyrene can be understood as a plastic, and its properties are quite stable. If you think your resin home has a pungent odor, this odor is generally not related to the resin material. The source of the pungent odor is probably the smell of the paint on the resin furniture by the furniture manufacturer or the smell of the board. Unqualified paints not only have excessive formaldehyde, but also have a pungent smell. Everyone knows this. Let's talk about plates. The plates available in the furniture manufacturing industry are divided into three levels of E0, E1, and E2 according to the formaldehyde emission. Those with a formaldehyde emission higher than E2 are unqualified products. Because resin furniture, the main material will not be solid wood, then it must be a plate, which will release harmful substances such as formaldehyde and benzene. Among them, formaldehyde is colorless and odorless. The main thing that can smell is organic substances such as benzene. I know what the smell is.

So if the paints and plates used for the resin furniture you choose are qualified, the resin furniture is not harmful to human health.
