Kaisersesch, February 07, 2024 - The CLASSEN Group, renowned manufacturer of laminate flooring and PVC-free, recyclable polymer flooring, is pleased to announce the publication of the CERAMIN Environmental Product Declaration (EPD).
With their quantitative statements on the environmental performance of building products, EPDs are aimed at many addressees who are involved in the value chain from the raw materials to the building through production and services.
Ceramin products not only meet expectations in terms of quality and aesthetics, but also set a new benchmark in terms of ecological responsibility. Customers can rest assured that with CERAMIN they are not only purchasing a high-quality floor covering, but also making a contribution to environmental protection. Particularly noteworthy are the impressive results that CERAMIN achieves by being PVC-free and using recycled material. The use of recycled material in production is an important key factor contributing to this positive result.
With CERAMIN, CLASSEN has developed a material that consists largely of recycled plastics and is 100 percent recyclable. For the healthy CERAMIN wall and floor coverings, CLASSEN deliberately avoids the use of chlorine, PVC and plasticizers and instead relies on the plastic polypropylene (PP).
The most important features of CERAMIN at a glance:
- PVC-free: CERAMIN does not use PVC, chlorine or plasticizers, which not only reduces the environmental impact but also contributes to a healthier indoor climate.
- Lower CO2 footprint: By using recycled material in production, CERAMIN minimizes its CO2 footprint considerably. This is a significant step towards sustainability and environmental protection and is monitored by an external certifier
- Recyclability: Thanks to the use of polypropylene (PP) plastic, CERAMIN is 100% recyclable.
In addition to the EPD, CERAMIN's comprehensive certification also includes prestigious awards such as the Blue Angel, the eco-Institut label and the RecyClass Recycled Plastic certificate. These recognitions confirm CERAMIN's sustainable properties in terms of materiality and production, which are an integral part of the CLASSEN Group's corporate philosophy.
