The CE marking, according to the Regulation on Construction Products (Reglamento de Productos de Construcción (R.P.C.)) certifies that the products meet seven compulsory requirements.
– Mechanical strength and stability
– Safety in the event of a fire
– Health, hygiene and environment
– Safety of use
– Protection against noise
– Energy economy and thermal insulation
– Sustainable use of natural resources.
This type of certificate means that the board possesses excellent properties for use as a structural element, imparting high mechanical strength and resistance to moisture as it consists of marine okoumé plywood.
By having a smooth and compact surface, paint and coatings can be applied directly and nails, screws and staples can be easily fastened
The FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) rules, monitor forest holdings and make sure that the land is used with a regeneration spirit. The certificate of the Chain of Custody and that of the FSC certified plywoods, provides a sufficient guarantee that the products are in line with the FSC certification rules.
A PROJECT CARRIED OUT TO IMPROVE PLYWOOD BOARDS PROPERTIES AND SERVICES TO NEW MARKETS
IVACE INNOVATION 2016
Development of plywood boards suitable for use in structural construction and sea-going vessels because of their excellent fire resistance.
The aim is to improve the properties of boards manufactured by the company in order to obtain new certifications that enable them to be introduced into new, highly demanding markets with greater added value. These markets are structural construction and boat building, both of which require a CE marking in accordance with various European directives. The use of the wood also needs to be certified as being sustainable according to particular requirements. This involves, on the one hand, improving mechanical properties and, on the other, enhancing fire resistance, making the boards even safer.
The project has been co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), as part of the ERDF
Operational Programme 2014-2020 for Valencian Community
COST OF THE PROJECT: 40.400,00 EUROS
GRANT GRANTED: 15.080,00 EUROS
