Eurofins “Indoor Air Comfort” product certification now includes also flooring adhesives, sealants and sealings


EurofinsIndoor Air Comfort” product certification expanded its scope to include also flooring adhesives, sealants and sealings. This allows pan-European labelling of low VOC emissions products in addition to the EMICODE label.

Recognizing the high value of the EMICODE label, an Indoor Air Comfort certificate can only be granted to a product carrying also an EMICODE label. The added value of the Indoor Air Comfort or Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate then is the continuous auditing and certifying, useful for documentation that low VOC emission properties are maintained during normal production.

The product groups for which an Indoor Air Comfort label can be achieved now are:

  • Textile floor coverings (according to EN 14041);
  • Resilient floor coverings (according to EN 14041);
  • Wooden floorings;
  • Insulation materials (EN 13162 until EN 13171);
  • Gypsum boards (EN 520);
  • Adhesives, levelling compounds, primers, sealants, sealings (if labelled with an EMICODE);
  • Other building materials;
  • Furniture.

EurofinsIndoor Air Comfort” product certification is an innovative tool for showing compliance with low VOC emission requirements of all relevant European specifications on two levels:

Standard level “Indoor Air Comfort – certified product” shows compliance of product emissions with all legal specifications issued by authorities in the European Union.

Higher level “Indoor Air Comfort GOLD – certified product” shows compliance of product emissions with the voluntary specifications issued by all relevant ecolabels and similar specifications in the EU.

  1. Keep up the good work as we all need products that give us benefits without all the toxic vapors and other nasty particle emissions. These kind of product downsides are something we use to just “have to live with”.
