In this evaluation, printed circuit board laminates, without circuitry, commonly found in PC monitors were tested to determine if an alternative laminate would be less emitting than conventional laminates. Test results qualitatively showed that the alternative, a glass/lignin-containing epoxy resin laminate, emits fewer volatile compounds than paper/phenolic resin-based laminates. The data also suggest that, if these laminates were used as a replacement for paper/phenol circuit board laminates in PC monitors, reductions in emissions from PC monitors could be achieved in indoor environments where they are used.
