Tarkett to lower VOCs in all products

Home News Tarkett to lower VOCs in all products

Chagrin Falls, Ohio—Recognizing the majority of the people in North America spend approximately 93% of their time indoors, Tarkett announced a worldwide initiative to lower the amount of total volatile organic compounds (TVOCs) in all its products.

“Very often the topic of indoor air quality (IAQ) is vague for many people,” said Diane Martel, vice president of environmental planning and strategy for Tarkett North America. “This initiative is a significant step forward—not only increasing awareness around IAQ, but ensuring Tarkett’s products have a positive impact on the health of building occupants.”

She added, the goal of the initiative is to have all products at less than 10 micrograms per cubic meter for TVOCs. Tarkett has not only begun reducing emissions to it products, several are already under the threshold.

To do this, Martel said Tarkett changed both the chemistry of its products and the methods of production to ensure adherence to the strictest IAQ measurement standards, which are measured using TVOCs.
