TECNOFOAM G-2008 obtains ATEX Type A certification
Polyurethane foam TECNOFOAM G-2008 obtained ‘Technical Experimental Assessment’ ATEX Type A made by the Expert Committee on CSTB wall insulation timber frame and traditional masonry, under reference number 2038 ATEX.
This certification regulates the volatile contaminant emissions of products used in construction and decoration.
The product’s level of emissions is indicated by a scale that goes from A+ (very low emissions) to C (high emissions), which is based on a similar principle to that already used for electrical appliances.
TECNOFOAM G-2008 has been awarded type A certification (low emissions).
This means that users have clear information that could constitute a further selection criterion, as it has a direct effect on their health and that of the future inhabitants of the building. Likewise, project owners can take into consideration the air quality in interiors as a feature in their building and building restoration offers.
From now on the tins of TECNOFOAM G-2008 will carry a label indicating the product’s low level of volatile contaminant emissions.
