EMICODE is a trademark-protected seal for product classification for modern, solvent-free and low-emission laying materials and construction products.
The inspection symbol for environmental and interior hygiene has been awarded since 1997 by the GEV (German Registered Association for the Control of Emissions in Products for Flooring Installation) to products of manufacturers who subject themselves to strict quality controls and regular inspections. With regard to consumer and processor protection, EMICODE provides an orientation aid for the assessment and selection of chemical construction products. The classification system is aimed at planners, consumers and tradesmen, is company-independent and competitively neutral.
The EMICODE breaks down into 3 emission classes, based on the strictly defined GEV test method (emissions test chamber) and the GEV classification criteria.
Many Wakol line products correspond to the best emission class, EMICODE EC1. They are subjected to especially strict controls according to DIN EN ISO 9001:2015, from the raw material stage to manufacture, with respect to their emission characteristics as well as their superb, technical functionality.
