BASF: Specialty Foam Certified to Oeko-Tex Standard 100

The melamine resin foam Basotect from BASF, is now certified to the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Tests carried out by an independent test institute have shown that the two grades Basotect V 3012 and Basotect G satisfy the human ecological requirements of the standard in product class III. The two product grades, which are used in household and construction applications, are thus deemed to be harmless to health in usage and processing. This means that no substances which are hazardous to health are released and absorbed through the skin.

The certificate is awarded for a year. The Oeko-Tex certification center can demand renewed product testing at any time in order to verify that the product characteristics match the requirements of the certificate.

The two product types were tested for extractable heavy metals, banned azo dyes, formaldehyde, organic tin compounds, chlorinated benzenes and phenols, perfluorinated compounds, plasticizers, and highly volatile organic compounds. Foam articles are also checked for emissions.
