WALLS AND CEILINGS
Grade „A“ for AURO
People spend an average of at least one third of the day within
closed rooms, even more during the cold autumn and winter
seasons. Therefore it is important to use wall paints of the
highest quality that constitute no substantial source for the
pollution of the indoor air. In this respect, the so-called „vola-
tile organic compounds“ (VOC) play an important role. These
are substances that evaporate easily, i.e. they turn to gas
already at very low temperatures, even at room temperature.
Nearly the complete AURO product range, especially the prod-
ucts for walls and ceilings, fufills the requirements of the
French VOC
regulation and receives the top grades
A or A+
.
More than three thirds of the relevant products are graded A+.
Moreover, our wallpaints correspond to the
Decopaint Guide-
line (2004/42/EU)
. On
, you will find a clearly
arranged listing of all products that have these or other certifi-
cations.

According to
Decopaint Directive

Recommended for living areas
In order to define a uniform health-re-
lated evaluation of emissions from
building products for construction and
renovation, the German AgBB* has set up an evaluation scheme.
AURO offers products from every field of application that were tested
according to the AgBB evaluation scheme and are therfore particularly
recommendable for indoor use.
