Our contribution

  • With low emission of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) close to 0, compliant with ISO 16000, GYPROC’s products do not emit formaldehyde or ammonia in any significant measure.
  • Formaldehyde present in indoor air is reduced by 70% when using Activ’Air ®/ AirRenew ® patented technology in the ration of 1m 2 installed per 1m 3 volume of room.
  • Manual handling as well as the irritation to skin are reduced during construction by adopting our plaster and plasterboard solutions instead of less ergonomic and more traditional building products like cement, bricks etc.
  • Saint-Gobain’s solutions rank high, for example at A+ for formaldehyde and other VOC emissions in the French ratings, and are compliant with the most stringent international standards for VOC emission tests and construction products (in μg/ m3). See the table below for the Total VOC and Formaldehydes ranking references (French ranking).
