XYLAZEL tests their paints at TECNALIA to gain the EU Ecolabel

2017.07.13

This European recognition allows the consumer to identify the most sustainable paints in the market

XYLAZEL, as part of its strong commitment to environmental protection, has obtained the Ecolabel for their range of water-based paints after testing their products at our laboratories. Thus they have achieved a European recognition for their commitment to quality and their goal to create healthier environments.

The EU Ecolabel is a system that allows consumers to differentiate those products that are more environmentally friendly, considering their entire life-cycle.

In the case of the Ecolabel of paints and varnishes, the ecological criteria needed for this award focus on promoting those products with lower environmental impact during their full life-cycle, which are high quality, having an appropriate performance and great durability, while containing a limited number of dangerous substances and a limited amount of organic compounds.

The TECNALIA  Construction Materials Laboratory collaborates with paint and varnish companies, advising them in all things needed to comply with the environmental criteria required to obtain the EU Ecolabel. It has recently obtained the ENAC accreditation to perform the necessary tests to comply with such requirements.

Gaining this accreditation allows the company to place an easily recognised label on its marketed products that consumers will identify; by obtaining this European recognition the company can prove that their products are environmentally-friendly.

If you wish to learn more, get in touch with Dr. Blanca Ruiz de Gauna, Head of the Construction Materials Characterisation Laboratory.
