CLASSEN Group publishes DECLARE label for the newly developed CERAMIN Flex

Kaisersesch, July 1, 2024 - The CLASSEN Group announces the completion and publication of the DECLARE label for its latest product CERAMIN Flex. This PVC-free dryback product is aimed specifically at the contract sector and sets new standards in terms of environmental compatibility and health safety.

An outstanding feature of CERAMIN Flex is its "Red List Approved" classification under the "i-13 Red List" criteria of the International Living Future Institute (ILFI). This means that the product does not contain any substances of concern that should be marked on the red list and are known to pose serious risks to human health and the entire ecosystem. This is a significant advantage over PVC products, which can only achieve the classification "Declared" due to their ingredients.

"We could also have chosen the 'Red List Free' label, but this would have required full disclosure of all ingredients," explains Sebastian Wendel, Sustainability Officer at the CLASSEN Group. "We decided against this for reasons of know-how. With the 'Red List Approved' classification, up to 1% of the ingredients remain confidential while still being subject to the strict Red List criteria of the ILFI. In our case, only 0.76% of the ingredients are kept secret, as can be seen in the label's detailed list."

The decision to use the "Red List Approved" label underlines the CLASSEN Group's commitment to meeting the highest standards of product transparency and sustainability without disclosing business-critical information.

CERAMIN Flex not only offers an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional floor coverings, but also meets the high demands of the contract market in terms of quality and durability.

Further information on the DECLARE label and CERAMIN Flex can be found on the CLASSEN Group website and on the platform of the International Living Future Institute.
