Directive VOC

Volatile Organic Compounds Directive

The purpose of this directive (2010/75/EU) is to prevent or reduce the direct and indirect effects of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) on the environment and human health.

Solvents containing substances likely to have a serious effect on human health and the environment (carcinogens, mutagens, or toxic to reproduction), must be replaced, as far as possible, by less harmful substances within the shortest possible time. Stricter emission values are specified for harmful substances.

Teknos ensures its products are produced in compliance with the VOC concentration limits which concern certain products.
