March 1, 2010

Texbond R and Terbond R are EPD certified.

After obtaining the EPD label for Ecozero, the panels for thermal and acoustic insulation, the Freudenberg Politex Group continues with the commitment for responsible development, which is based on the two pillars of innovation and environmental protection.

Texbond R and Terbond R, the nonwovens made of recycled polyester and mainly used as reinforcements for bituminous roofing membranes, are now certified Environmental Product Declarations, based on the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) carried out in the Italian production sites of Novedrate and Pisticci by the Department of Engineering and Physics of the University of Basilicata.

It is well known that the construction industry is one of the sectors that can contribute more to the saving of natural resources, through improved energy efficiency of buildings and especially using products that can guarantee a reduced environmental impact all over their life cycle.
