Emissions Testing

Emissions from contruction products may be a relevant cause of indoor pollution. Additionally, energ saving and airtight construction methods may aggravate this problem. Thus, it comes as no surprise the international and national legislation* and voluntary quality assurance stipulate more and more specific requirements on the emissions behaviour of construction products.  

One of the focusses of our testing know-how is the measurement of outgassings in the emission test chamber. With a capacity of more than 85 stainless-steel and glass test chambers in different sizes (from 125 litres) we are able to act fast and flexible to your wishes (start of testing usually within one week after sample arrival).

As accredited and expert testing body experts we also accomplish emission examinations according to the approval principles of the DIBt (German Institute for Structural Engineering) and evaluate products in regards of
