ÖKO TEX CERTIFICATION
To help protect the environment, Tempotest has received the ÖKO TEX STANDARD 100 certification mark. A fabric Tempotest certified ÖKO TEX means that it does not contain any harmful products and is in harmony with the environment.
USE OF FORMALDEHYDE
The formaldehyde is a volatile organic substance, used in many textile production processes in watery solution, especially in the finishing process of the fabric.
The permanence of this type of fabric in closed and not ventilated places may cause some inconvenience to people. Although all Parà's products are in line with what provided by Oeko test Standard 100 that is having a formaldehyde content </=300 ppm, Parà wanted to further reduce the formaldehyde content on its fabrics to levels much lower than the previous ones, keeping however unchanged the features of the fabric such as the hand and the characteristics of repellency and water resistance.
