We aim to keep growing the share of our products that have environmental and safety certification. These currently account for around 78% of our product sales. See our list of Kiilto products with environmental and safety classifications.
The allergy label is awarded for fragrance and colourant-free products developed in cooperation with the Allergy, Skin and Asthma Federation.
The “Key Flag” mark of origin indicates that at least 50% of a product or service originates in Finland.
At least 60% of a raw material classified as readily biodegradable will decompose in a natural setting in 28 days.
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 Swan Ecolabel's requirements also apply to the energy efficiency of buildings, good indoor air and the construction materials used in a building.
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.
Waterproofing products and tile adhesives are given a CE marking valid throughout the EU, when tested as a system and given European Technical Approval (ETA). This marking has been awarded to almost all Kiilto plasters and compounds.
The CE label is for hospital hygiene products manufactured in compliance with the EU directive on medical devices. A compliance assessment by an independent notified body is needed for some products. In such cases, the number of the notified body is provided under the CE mark.
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.
NORDIC SWAN ECOLABEL
The Nordic Swan Ecolabel is granted for products which meet strict environmental requirements. The ecolabelling scheme evaluates a product's impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle.
The Kiilto Turva safety label indicates that an aversive agent has been added to prevent swallowing of the product. This is done for additional product safety (particularly in households with children).
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 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. An M1 rating is awarded for low-emission professional cleaning substances. The aim is to improve indoor air by promoting the development of lower-emission materials.
Products in the new Kiilto Natura range are made of plant-based, i.e. renewable and biodegradable raw materials, which are responsibly produced. The raw materials used in the products and packaging have separate cycles.
The NSF Mark is granted by NSF International for products with raw materials that can be used in, or in contact with, foodstuffs. Kiilto’s certified products are listed in the NSF White Book.
Adhesives bearing the 'Russian Maritime Register of Shipping' mark meet the fire safety requirements of the Russian maritime organisation.
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.
VTT certification confirms that a product or product system fulfils Finnish building regulations and standards when used in accordance with the certificate instructions.
