GRAPHENSTONE UK SETS THE GOLD STANDARD FOR CERTIFICATION WITH NEW AWARDS
FIRE RESISTANCE AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY – Euro A2 Fire Standard / Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold Certification
Graphenstone UK, the world’s most certified eco paint brand, announces the award of two further certifications for its GCS Premium mineral paint and Grafclean Eggshell formulations, cementing its position as a world leader when it comes to comprehensive, transparent, independent and sustainable certifications.
“Graphenstone UK once again proudly sets the benchmark when it comes to sustainability. The fact that all our mainline products are certified to the highest global standards, rigorously and independently tested, checked and verified gives our customers unequivocal trust and peace of mind.”
– Patrick Folkes, Founder, Graphenstone UK.
The first award is a new Fire Performance Classification for Graphenstone’s GCS Premium mineral paint. This ecological Lime silicate paint already boasts many impressive characteristics, including: BREEAM/WELL/LEED compliant, trace VOC’s, Class 1 breathability, high yield and opacity, improved strength and durability, and holds the globally recognised Cradle to Cradle Silver certification amongst many others. Now it has also been certified to Euro A2 fire standards.
This vital certification demonstrates that this paint coating is inherently non-combustible and does not release any toxic chemicals or fumes in the event of a fire. Furthermore, it has been tested and proven to prevent the surface spread of flames. These standards are met and recognised under the EN13501-1 *Graphenstone GCS Premium paint formulation.
Already leading the industry in ecological, material health and sustainability standards, Graphenstone UK is committed to achieving the highest standards within the coatings industry. This new fire certification is the latest feather in its cap and offers specifiers and facilities managers a viable, tested and trusted product option.
The second announcement is that Graphenstone’s Grafclean Eggshell has been awarded the Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certification. This highly acclaimed certification, which validates the manufacturing process as well as the end products, is a rare achievement in the paint sector, and even rarer for an eggshell paint to achieve this standard. In fact Grafclean Eggshell joins just a handful of eggshell products available in the global coatings market, and possibly the only one widely available in the UK that are BREEAM, WELL, LEED and SKA compliant.
Its high-quality formulation is perfect for retail, hospitality, education, leisure and social projects and is ideal for use on doors and trims whilst meeting the highest environmental assessment standards.
