Products that are low in emissions are awarded the EMICODE® EC2 label. This class fulfils the basic requirements for being granted the EMICODE® label.
The highest class EMICODE® EC1 has proven itself over many years as a standard for products that are very low in emissions. The materials awarded this label comply with very stringent health and environmental requirements.
The premium class EMICODE® EC1PLUS defines the limit of what is technically feasible today. Introduced in 2010, it sets even higher and stricter limit values than category EC1.
Some EMICODE® labels contain a grey “R” in the background. This stands for “regulated” and was introduced for products that are (very) low in emissions, but still require occupational safety measures like waering protective gloves or goggles when being used. Despite the required safety measures during use, these products still warrant the EMICODE® label on account of their emission characteristics.
