Wood fibre insulating materials can emit various substances. In addition to formaldehyde (if binders containing formaldehyde are used), these substances may include volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) such as aldehydes, terpenes from wood components, as well as short-chain carboxylic acids, particularly acetic acid and formic acid.
If insulation materials are installed facing the interior, without a wind-tight layer separating them from the indoor air, the following criteria for emission behaviour must be met:
Max. test chamber concentration after 28 days
|Carcinogenic substances classified as Categories 1A and 1B under CLP Regulation 1272/2008 (C-substances)||1 µg/m³ (not quantifiable)|
Total of volatile organic compounds C6C16 (TVOCs without acidic acid)
Total of semi-volatile organic compounds C16C22 (TSVOCs)
*) Proof required only for insulation materials with binders containing formaldehyde.
Test report of an accredited testing laboratory, with test chamber procedure in accordance with ÖN EN ISO 16000 (-3),-6,-9,-11 and ÖNORM EN 16516. Test specifications according to AgBB-Scheme 2018, with a space loading of ≥ 0.5 m²/m³ for wood and wood-based panels. For older measurements, tests according to AgBB-Scheme 2015 are also accepted. The test certificate must not be more than 5 years old.
All products awarded one of the following eco labels meet these criteria:
