With the approval of the assembly adhesives Cool Tack 286 and Montage Ekstra 292 for indoor climate-labelled construction, Dana Lim adds two more products to its portfolio of documented environmentally friendly products. “The fabulously good test results confirm that our green focus is bearing fruit,” says laboratory manager Erik Andersen.

Like every Danish building material producer, Dana Lim is asked from time to time to document that the company lives up to the usual requirements for suppliers of materials for indoor climate-labelled buildings.

Most recently, Dana Lim has therefore sent the assembly adhesives Cool Tack 286 and Montage Ekstra 292 for assessment with a view to subsequent use in indoor climate-labelled construction. The products were sent for evaluation at Eurofins Product Testing in Galten outside Aarhus, which is one of Europe’s leading test institutes.

Fabulously good result
And the result of the unbiased test is not to be mistaken, says Dana Lim’s laboratory manager Erik Andersen:

– When assessing the applicability of a product, with regard to indoor climate-labelled buildings, the amount of harmful substances that the product emits after 28 days of curing is tested. In the case of the two mounting adhesives, the amount of so-called VOCs, i.e. volatile substances such as formaldehyde, so low that it was below the measurable limit.

– It is a fabulously good result, which confirms that our continuous work to reduce the content of harmful substances in the products is bearing fruit. The two assembly adhesives stay far below the limit values required in indoor climate-rated construction, he emphasizes.

Never compromise on quality
Among the initiatives that contribute to Dana Lim’s market-leading position in environmentally friendly product development are the ongoing replacement of harmful substances in the older products with substances that do not cause strain on the indoor climate, the environment and the working environment.

In addition, Dana Lim continuously develops new products, where green considerations are just as important as consideration of the products’ applicability on the construction site. It is, among other things, the case for Dana Lim’s series of efficient products for Swan-labelled buildings.

As Erik Andersen points out, there is no point in developing gentle products, if the result on the construction site is that the craftsmen have to compromise with the technical quality of construction:

– Sustainability must go hand in hand with efficiency. In this way, it becomes easier for the craftsman to choose the green alternatives, because you get the same high product quality, but with significantly less strain on the working environment, environment and indoor climate, he concludes.
