Glass, itself, is by definition a non-emitting source of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Moreover, in keeping with our commitment to using eco-friendly building materials, our mirrors and lacquered glass get the highest score of A+ according to the French standards on VOCs.
To ensure a basic level of high indoor air quality.
Part 1: Standards for Volatile Substances:
- Formaldehyde less than 27 ppb
- Total volatile organic compounds less than 550 μg/m³
Part 2: Standards for Particulate Matter and Inorganic Gases
- Carbon monoxyde less than 9 ppm
- PM₂.₅ less than 15 μg/m³
- PM₁₀ less than 50 μg/m³
- Ozone less than 51 ppb
Part 3: Radon
- Radon less than 4 pCi/L in the lowest occupied level of the project
Part 4: Operational Kitchen Air Quality
- Carbon monoxide levels less than 35 ppm.
- PM₂.₅ less than 35 μg/m³.
- Nitrogen dioxide less than 100 ppb.
- Formaldehyde less than 81 ppb.

Glass is usually recognized as an inert material, meaning that it does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Regarding furniture, glass is used as mirrors (MIRALITE REVOLUTION, MIRALITE SAFE and MIRASTAR) and lacquered glass (PLANILAQUE EVOLUTION/DECOLAQUE, PLANILAQUE STADIP, MY DECOLAQUE, VITRIO, DECOLIT, MY DECOPRINT and MAGNETIC glass marker board). For this kind of application, in accordance with French regulations on VOCs and construction products, these glazing products rank at the highest scoring of A+, meaning <1000 µg/m3 in total VOCs and <10 µg/m3 in formaldehyde.
High durability lacquered glass with an opaque and tinted appearance, to bring color and ambiance to interiors.
High definition digital printing (designs, photographs, text, etc.) on all types of glass.
MIRASTAR is a coated glass which primary characteristic is its high reflection which presents an incredible mirror effect.
