Extover® has already been awarded the “Tested and Recommended” seal of approval by the Institut für Baubiologie Rosenheim GmbH (IBR) in the past due to the good test results. Extover® has now been re-confirmed as safe with respect to building biology and the certificate has been extended until 2020.
The test material for the building biology safety test is obtained by the IBR by taking material samples at the place of manufacture. In the subsequent pollutant analysis, various hazardous substances are tested. The material has been tested for radioactivity, biocides, organohalogen compounds (HOV, AOX, EOX), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) and phthalates, flame retardants, volatile organic compounds (VOC, SVOC) and heavy metals.
The extension of the certificate confirms our claim to the highest quality of our product. Extover® consists of pure glass and therefore is non-flammable and non-toxic. The extinguishing agent is low-reaction (inert), amorphous, fibre-free, solvent-free (VOC-free), odourless, anti-allergenic and radiologically completely harmless. The fire extinguishing granules are also alkali-resistant and acid-resistant and have a high resistance against mould. Extover® can therefore be used completely safely as an extinguishing agent and preventive fire protection agent.
About the “Tested and Recommended” seal of the IBR:
In order to maintain neutrality and objectivity, all tests were carried out by independent third parties. Economically independent laboratories are commissioned to carry out the necessary examinations and tests. All results which resulted in the certificate were taken from these external test reports.
The IBR certificate has been awarded since 1982 and offers consumers the opportunity to get informed about health-friendly materials.
