Dear Customers and Partners!
LLC “SWISS KRONO” is one of the first Ukrainian manufacturers of chipboards, which fulfills high demands of new standards. On November 6, 2019, LLC “SWISS KRONO” received a certificate E [D2020], issued by WKI Certification body (Braunschweig, Germany). The certificate confirms compliance with the requirements of the Decree on the prohibition of Chemicals and the “Law on Chemical substances” (ChemVerbotsV), which comes into force in Germany from 01.01.2020 on the content of free formaldehyde.
This law defines the content of free formaldehyde in products at the level ≤ 0.1 ppm, which is equivalent to a 4mg formaldehyde/100g of dry slab or emission class E 0.5 and it spreads to products made of wood. According to the new law, wood materials with and without coating (wood-shavings, joinery, plywood boards and wood-fibrous plates) should not be placed on the German market, if the concentration of formaldehyde in the air of a test room, caused by wood material, exceeds the set norm of 0.1 ppm.
The presence of a certificate E [D2020] is a confirmation that the “SWISS KRONO” chipboards are safe for the environment, and they are harmless to human health.
Therefore, the level of ecological products of LLC “SWISS KRONO” is growing:until recently, our company’s board products have been in compliance with the European emission standard E1 and now also E [D2020].
With the help of environmental declarations and product certifications we provide complete transparency of our company and reaffirm our responsibility for the environment and human health, which is an important part of our business philosophy.
