Materials for crates

From: Gary Miller <garym<-a>
Date: Thursday, February 21, 2008
I recently came across a new plywood material that we are looking at
to build crates for National and International travel of art work
and three dimensional objects. It is an MDO (medium Density overlay
made by Plum Creek Northwest Plywood Inc.

The product is made by covering one or both sides of softwood
plywood with paper which contains Phenol formaldehyde resins
1.0-8.0%) and adhesives. The free formaldehyde threshold limit value
is < 0.1ppm. It is a fine looking product that finishes very nice. I
am concerned about the formaldehyde resins. Can anyone give me some
information on acceptable levels or of other products used in crate
