Armacell is the first manufacturer of flexible technical insulation materials to present environmental product declarations (EPDs)

Armacell publishes environmental product declarations which are based on an independent lifecycle assessment (LCA). Comparing the primary energy input identified in the LCA with the energy saving achieved, shows that ArmaFlex insulation materials save 140 times more energy than is needed for their manufacture, transport and disposal.

Armacell has independently verified EPDs compliant with ISO 15804 and ISO 14025 for AF/ArmaFlex, AF/ArmaFlex Evo, AF/ArmaFlex Class O, ArmaFlex Ultima, HT/ArmaFlex,  NH/ArmaFlex, NH/ArmaFlex Smart and Tubolit (see below).

 

Types of environmental declarations (eco labels according to ISO standards):
Type 1 Declarations are made by a third party (according to ISO 14024) affirming compliance with pre-determined, multi-attribute, life-cycle based environmental performance requirements (e.g. German 'Blauer Engel' or 'US Green Seal').
Type 2 Declarations reflect environmental performance claims made by a product manufacturer (according to ISO 14021). The performance criteria have not been independently verified (e.g. US 'GreenGuard' or 'Energy Star').
Type 3 Declarations (according to ISO 14025) present in a consistent manner objective, quantifiable, life-cycle based environmental product information which has been independently verified by a third party. Also known as environmental product declarations (EPDs).
