The GREENGUARD GOLD & GREENGUARD Certification

Let’s have a look at the significance of the GREENGUARD Certification
A GREENGUARD Certified product denotes that it perfectly meets the strict chemical emissions limits, along with being tested for over more than 10,000 chemicals.
The GREENGUARD Certification aims at identifying healthier and environmentally safe products by ensuring that the product complies with some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) into the indoor air.
The GREENGUARD GOLD Standard represents health-based criteria for additional chemicals in addition to requiring completely low VOC emissions in locations such as schools, healthcare facilities, etc.

It restricts the use of the following six hazardous substances:
- Calcium – <0.01% = <100 PPM
- Mercury – <0.10% = <1,000 PPM
- Hexavalent Chromium – <0.10% = <1,000 PPM
- Lead – <0.10% = <1,000 PPM
- Polybrominated Byphenyls – <0.10% = <1,000 PPM
