IN THE MODERN LIVING CULTURE, INCREASING IMPORTANCE IS GIVEN TO FACTORS AFFECTING HEALTH, AND AIR QUALITY IS CERTAINLY ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ONES, WITH THE TENDENCY TO AVOID PRODUCTS THAT RELEASE HARMFUL POLLUTIONS THAT CAN LEAD TO VARIOUS COMPLICATIONS. IN ADDITION TO THAT, ECO-FRIENDLY PRODUCTS HAVE IMPOSED THEMSELVES AS A NEED FOR AN INCREASINGLY GROWING GROUP OF CONSUMERS.
At the end of 2022, the company Bekament received significant EUROFINS Indoor Air Comfort (IAC) and Indoor Air Comfort Gold (IACG) certificates for three products from the Interior category - paints for interior walls, which are characterized by low VOC (volatile organic compounds) emissions.
IAC and IACG certificates generally recognized in Europe are awarded by the multinational company EUROFINS, which has implemented a reliable and efficient model based on which not only products are controlled, but also the entire management and quality control system, as well as the production process. For the purpose of final certification in the previous period, the company Bekament conducted a series of examinations and annual tests on paints for interior walls. As a final result, certificates were obtained for the products: BK-Gold, BK-Pol and BK-Crystal, which meet the demanding European regulations for low VOC emission, and in accordance with the EN 16516 standard, thus guaranteeing that their application will ensure a healthy environment in the interior and high quality of air.
The product BK-Gold (high-coverage dispersion for interior walls) was awarded the IACG (Indoor Air Comfort Gold), while the products BK-Pol (dispersion for interior walls) and BK-Crystal (high-coverage water-washable dispersion for interior walls) were awarded the IAC (Indoor Air Comfort).
Having in mind the extremely strict and restrictive parameters on which it is based, the IACG certificate confirms the product's compliance with VOC emission threshold values:
