Normec Product Testing successfully passed GEV 2023 Round Robin emission test


Normec Product Testing is now included in GEV list of recommended laboratories.

The Association for the Control of Emissions in Products for Flooring Installation, Adhesives and Building Materials (GEV) organized in 2023 a round-robin test on determination of VOC emissions from three products. A parquet lacquer, a parquet adhesive and a levelling compound were tested according to the most recent GEV testing protocol after 3 days storage in a ventilated test chamber. GEV evaluation is based upon correctness of identification of the most relevant emitted substances and deviation of laboratory individual results from the results of the entity of all participants in the round-robin test, relative to the standard deviation (‘z score’). Key parameters for the evaluation were: TVOC, sum of VOC (TVOCSPEZ as for AgBB), TSVOC, R value (AgBB), and selected VOCs.
