CERTIFICATIONS
The properties of our photocatalytic products are based on tests methods under the ISO standards.

what is an iso standard?

International Organization for Standardization (ISO) It is an independent, non-governmental organization made up of the standardization organizations of its 164 member countries. It is the world’s largest developer of voluntary international standards and facilitates world trade by providing common standards between countries. Nearly 20,000 standards have been established, covering everything from manufactured products and technology to food safety, agriculture and health.

The use of standards facilitates the creation of products and services that are safe, reliable and of quality. Standards help businesses increase productivity while minimizing errors and expense. By allowing products from different manufacturers to be compared directly, it makes it easier for new companies to enter new markets and help develop global trade on a fair basis. The standards also serve to protect consumers and end users of products and services by ensuring that certified products conform to internationally standardized minimums.

Standards published by AENOR, the Spanish member organization of the International Organization for Standardization. A UNE or UNE-EN standard is similar to an ISO standard.

THE PROPERTIES OF OUR PRODUCTS ARE TESTED UNDER ISO STANDARD BY CERTIFYING ENTITIES SUCH AS:
