Interplasp renews the CertiPUR certificate for the next three years. We are the only producers in the entire Iberian Peninsula with this certificate.
MThe CERTIPUR label is a voluntary standard for the environment and health properties of flexible polyurethane foams used in bedding and upholstered furniture applications. It specifies substances that may not be used in the production of PU foam and sets stringent maximum limits for hazardous components.
In daily life, polyurethane foams are essential for comfort and used in a very broad variety of applications. Their unique performances must however be combined with a stringent standard when it comes to environment and health considerations. Downstream industry customers, final consumers and regulators legitimately expect proof of conformity of polyurethane foam with existing legislation but also with the latest scientific knowledge on substances used in formulations in order to minimize any impact on consumer’s health and the environment.
CertiPUR meets these expectations through a clear commitment to avoid or limit strictly the presence of any potentially harmful substance in flexible polyurethane foams. In this approach it stays ahead of evolving EU legislation, such as the EC General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC, the REACH Regulation EC 1907/2006 or other relevant legislation.
The CertiPUR label enables individual foam producers to reassure bedding and furniture manufacturers on environmental matters, allowing them to give customers and consumers confidence in certified polyurethane foams.
