We aim to keep growing the share of our products that have environmental and safety certification. Products that are safe for the environment and users bear the following markings:
The M1 rating indicates that building materials meet the most stringent emissions classifications for indoor air quality. When developing Kiilto building supplies, our goal is always to achieve an M1 rating, which we have already gained in 70% of cases. A growing number of our industrial products are also being classed as M1.
Waterproofing products are given a CE marking valid throughout the EU, when tested as a system and given European Technical Approval (ETA). Kiilto’s Kerafiber waterproofing system was the first of its kind to receive a CE marking. Flexible cementitious adhesives were the first Kiilto products to receive a CE marking, which was granted in 2004. Since then, the marking has been awarded to almost all Kiilto plasters and compounds.
VTT certification confirms that a product or product system fulfils Finnish building regulations and standards when used in accordance with the certificate instructions.
The properties of grouts are specified in the EN 13888 standard. Grouts are divided into two groups according to the standard: CG (cementitious grouts) and RG (resin grouts). In addition, CG has been divided into two classes, 1 and 2, of which CG2 is stricter. The CG2 marking is further supplemented with letters indicating how the product meets requirements: W = better water-repelling properties, A = better wear resistance. Kiilto's Saumalaasti and Klinkkerisaumalaasti products bear the marking GC2 W A.
Adhesives bearing the 'Wheel Mark' meet the fire safety requirements of the International Maritime Organization (IMO). IMO recommendations are included in the EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED). The Wheel Mark on marine equipment and materials indicates compliance with the MED.
The NSF Mark is granted by NSF International for products with raw materials that can be used in contact with foodstuffs. Kiilto’s certified products are listed in the NSF White Book.
APPROVAL FOR USE IN FOOD PACKAGING
Adhesives that bear this mark meet the requirements of Regulation (EC) No. 1935/2004 on materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, GMP regulation (EC) No. 2023/2006 on good manufacturing practices, Food Act 23/2006 and the plastic regulation (EU) 10/2011.
Adhesives bearing the 'Russian Maritime Register of Shipping' mark meet the fire safety requirements of the Russian maritime organisation.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design is an American certification programme for green properties that aims to reduce the environmental impact of construction and building use. All solvent-free products made by the Kiilto construction product department fulfil the LEED certification criteria.
The 'Key Flag' mark of origin indicates that a product or service originates in Finland. Kiilto was granted the 'Key Flag' for its domestic production in June 2011, due to its use of Finnish work and expertise. Kiilto Oy makes adhesives, waterproofing products, plasters, levelling compounds and lacquers in its own production facilities in Lempäälä.
Can be used in Nordic Swan Ecolabelled buildings
The mark indicates that a product has been approved for use in Nordic Swan Ecolabelled buildings. Such products are listed in the Nordic Ecolabel Building Materials Database. In the case of detached houses, apartment buildings and daycare centres, the requirements cover the construction phase, materials and energy consumption. The Nordic Ecolabel's requirements also apply to the energy efficiency of buildings, good indoor air and the construction materials used in a building.
Wood adhesive markings
The adhesive's water resistance has been tested by ift Rosenheim to meet the requirements of standard EN 204-D2. The certificate indicates that the adhesive has earned water resistance classification D2 for thermoplastic adhesives.
The adhesive's water resistance has been tested by ift Rosenheim to meet the requirements of standard EN 204-D3. The certificate indicates that the adhesive has earned water resistance classification D3 for thermoplastic adhesives.
The adhesive's water resistance has been tested by ift Rosenheim to meet the requirements of standard EN 204-D4. The certificate indicates that the adhesive has earned water resistance classification D4 for thermoplastic adhesives.
EN 14257 (WATT91)
The adhesive's thermal resistance has been tested by ift Rosenheim to meet the requirements of standard EN 14257 (WATT91). The certificate indicates that the adhesive has earned the thermal resistance classification for thermoplastic adhesives.
An adhesive meeting the requirements of standard EN 15425 has been approved for the production of CE-marked glulam in accordance with EN 14080.
