More and more often when choosing coloring mixtures, the manufacturer draws attention not only to their design and technical parameters. The environmental friendliness and safety of materials is more closely studied, both during their application, and in further operation. Many Russian producers of paintwork materials are striving to get eco-marked. This phenomenon is familiar to Western Europe and the USA. The same applies to other building materials. The more environmentally friendly they are, the better. For example, you can buy a glossy laminate for relatively little money, but at the same time it will meet all environmental requirements. Decoration of premises using natural materials is correct and modern.
For example, the Blue Angel sign is used in the European Union, though for a special fee. When passing a special test on the label of products, the percentage of the presence of volatile organic compounds in it is indicated.
In the United States, the use of this marking is prohibited. And manufacturers who use it are required to undergo a repeated certification procedure.
Passing additional certification to receive the right to use special signs is a voluntary matter. Nevertheless, large manufacturers try to go through this procedure, understanding all its importance for the image of the company. Therefore, you have the opportunity to buy a glossy laminate exactly the one that will have this marking. The popularity of eco -brands in Russia is growing. Representatives of the Trade Commission of the Russian Federation claim that their organization will actively deal with illegal assignments.
