Keep reading to find out more about these certifications and see which ISOMAT products have been certified. Don’t forget to look for the relevant marks on the packaging.


EMICODE

The EMICODE® classification system was introduced in 1997 by the German association GEV (Gemeinschaft Emissionskontrollierte Verlegewerkstoffe, Klebstoffe und Bauprodukte e.V.) and today has become one of the most important quality benchmarks for the construction industry, both on a national and international scale.

EMICODE® is an international environmental label awarded to construction products with very low VOC emissions, ensuring protection from indoor air pollution, optimum health of applicators and end-users, and maximum environmental compatibility. Certified products can be easily recognized by the EMICODE® seal on the packaging.

As a producer of EMICODE®-labeled products, ISOMAT is obliged to follow a verified and monitored production process of the highest standards, so the final products can be fully compliant with the stringent requirements of the EMICODE® classification system. This certification has gained high market significance and is accepted as proof by programs like LEED, BREEAM, WELL, etc.

ISOMAT products are assigned one of the following three EMICODE® classes and carry the respective EMICODE® seal:

  • EMICODE® EC1: Very low VOC emissions.
  • EMICODE® EC1 PLUS: Very low VOC emissions, setting even higher and stricter limit values.
  • EMICODE® EC1 PLUS R: Very low VOC emissions, subject to regulations to ensure safe handling.

INDOOR AIR COMFORT GOLD (IACG)

Indoor Air Comfort Gold (IACG) certification is the most stringent voluntary label on volatile organic compound (VOCs) emissions, ensuring optimum indoor air quality! Gold is the highest level of the Indoor Air Comfort certification issued by the accredited body Eurofins, which is a global leader in testing, inspection and certification of consumer goods.

IACG combines and shows compliance with all mandatory and voluntary VOC-related requirements in use in Europe, namely EMICODE®, French VOC label (A+ class), etc., into one single specification. The certification program includes product testing and factory production control, giving a high level of reliability, and certified products are those with the best-in-class low emissions, ensuring a safe and healthy indoor living environment.

Our efforts to provide customers with innovative products that meet the growing market demand for more sustainable construction materials is reflected in our certificates. IACG shows global compliance with requirements for sustainable buildings and is directly accepted as proof by programs like LEED, BREEAM, WELL, etc.

BLUE ANGEL

The Blue Angel certification is the world’s first and oldest ecolabel for environmentally friendly products and services. Since 1978, the German-based certification promotes the use of eco-friendly products and strengthens consumer awareness of environmental choices. The Blue Angel is a Type I environmental label according to DIN EN ISO 14024, i.e. it sets the strictest criteria, which ensure the highest level of environmental quality while taking into account the entire life cycle of the product, from its production and use to its disposal and recycling.

Driven by the need to ensure optimal indoor air quality and address the new environmental needs, ISOMAT is the first Greek company to develop a paint bearing the Blue Angel ecolabel. Specially formulated without preservatives and with very low VOC emissions, it is environment- and user-friendly, protecting presensitized people from experiencing allergic reactions. On top of that, thanks to the extremely low VOC emissions, it is nearly odorless and ensures a healthy atmosphere for both the applicator and the end-user.

BLUE ANGEL CERTIFIED ISOMAT PRODUCTS:

  • ISOMAT ZERO PAINT – High-quality flat matt emulsion paint for interior use, free from preservatives and plasticizers.

EU ECOLABEL

Established in 1992, the EU Ecolabel is the official European Union voluntary label for environmental excellence recognized today not only within Europe but all over the globe. The label is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental and human health standards throughout their entire life cycle: from raw material extraction through production and distribution to disposal. Most importantly, the criteria do not constitute a simple declaration for the producer. Instead, they are verified and certified by the competent national authority.

The criteria for the Ecolabel certification provide exigent guidelines for companies looking to reduce their environmental footprint and the impact of their products on human health. Also, many companies turn to the EU Ecolabel criteria for guidance on eco-friendly best practices during development and disposal of products after their use. Finally, the Ecolabel certification promotes the circular economy in business, the reduction of emissions and carbon dioxide during the production process, as well as the development of recyclable products characterized by high durability and quality.
