WOCA Denmark is focused on supplying the best and most environmentally friendly products. And our ethos is simple: to consider nature in every step we take, from the impact that the manufacturing process and products could have on the environment to the way our penetrating oils are designed to protect and enhance the natural properties of wood.
In order to provide you with safe, green solutions, our laboratory team selects raw materials that have the smallest possible environmental impact. An initiative that helps improve health and indoor air quality, wherever your products are used.
The migration of metals (As, Hg, Se, Cr, Sb, Cd, Pb, Ba) of the sample was tested according EN 71 Part 3 1995.
There was no evidence for migration of the named metals above the limit of detection (10-50 ppm).
All products for the interiors are correspondingly suitable for toys.
WOCA Denmark’s products are tested in neutral laboratories, e.g. by the Institue of Biological Building Materials in Rosenheim and are approved and certified. The impact on the health of people and environment of the methods of production and the products that are used for building, furnishing and living is examined.
Danish Indoor Climate Labelling is a voluntary labelling scheme for products and materials which are able to document degassing. Indoor climate labelled materials are a natural component of sustainable construction, where good indoor air quality contributes to social sustainability.
The VOC Directive, devised by the European Parlament and the Council of Europe, defines the directive limiting emissions for certain pollution causing volatile organic compounds, called VOCs. All WOCA Denmark products meet the VOC Directives for 2007 and 2010.
WOCA Diamond Oil, WOCA Hardwax Oil and WOCA Neutral Oil have been tested on solid wood, and achieved a R10 clasification according to DIN 51130. For more information, please contact WOCA Denmark A/S.
Since September 2013, all floor coating products marketed and sold in France are obliged to be labelled with a VOC classification ranging from grade A+ (very low emissions) to grade C (high emissions).
The aim is to improve indoor air quality in both private and commercial buildings.
This regulation enables consumers to select environmentally friendly products as well, as the grade A+ guarantees an emission of volatile substances below the limit value after 28 days – a limit value identical with the one prescribed by the Center of Competence in Civil Engineering (DIBt).
The Nordic Swan is the official Nordic environmental label. The Nordic Swan was formed by the Nordic Council of Ministers in 1989. Denmark joined in 1997. The Nordic Swan aims to minimise the cumulative environmental stress caused by consumerism. Accordingly, these environmental labels consider the entire journey of the product and the resulting environmental problems, so as to benefit people, the environment and protect the world’s resources. In cleaning products, this means that numerous chemicals are banned. Packaging and design are also subject to requirements. Consumers must be provided with information about correct dosage, and effectiveness must be documented.
WOCA Denmark is certified according to the following standards: ISO 9001: 2000 – the international standard for quality control; and ISO 14001:2004 – the international standard for environmental management.
The quality and environmental management systems ensure, that sales, supply, product development and production are conducted according to defined procedures and instructions known by all members of staff. ISO 9001 ensures that the defined quality of procedures and products is guaranteed – and therefore the products feature uniform quality.
ISO 14001 takes into account all aspects concerning the environment. This applies to chosing raw materials, the internal environement, but also the handling of waste.
Furthermore, new targets for the improvement of quality and environment are set permanently.
