Class 1 Oeko-Tex certification
Since its introduction in 1992, the central focus of the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® has been the development of test criteria, limit values and test methods on a scientific basis. On the basis of its comprehensive and strict catalogue of measures, with several hundred regulated individual substances, the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® takes account of:
- Important legal regulations, such as banned Azo colourants, formaldehyde, pentachlorophenol, cadmium, nickel, etc.
- Numerous harmful chemicals, even if they are not yet legally regulated.
- Requirements of Annexes XVII and XIV of the European Chemicals Regulation REACh as well as of the ECHA SVHC Candidate List insofar as they are assessed by expert groups of the OEKO-TEX® Association to be relevant for fabrics, textiles, garments or accessories. Discussions and developments that are considered to be relevant are taken into account as quickly and effectively as possible through updates to the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® requirements.
- Requirements from the US Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regarding lead.
- Numerous also environmentally relevant substance classes
With its decades of experience, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 therefore contributes to high and effective product safety from a consumer’s point of view. Test criteria and limit values in many cases go far beyond applicable national and international standards. Extensive product checks and regular company audits also ensure that the industry has a globally sustainable awareness of the responsible use of chemicals. With this concept, the OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 has taken on a pioneering role for many years.
Laboratory tests and product classes
The OEKO-TEX® tests for harmful substances are fundamentally based on the respective purpose of the textiles and materials. The more intensive the skin contact of a product and the more sensitive the skin, the stricter the human-ecological requirements that need to be complied with.
Accordingly, a distinction is made between four product classes:
- Product class I:
Articles for babies and toddlers up to 3 years of age (underwear, rompers, clothing, bed linen, terry products etc.)
- Product class II:
Articles that are worn close to the skin (underwear, bed linen, t-shirts, socks etc.)
- Product class III:
Articles used away from the skin (jackets, coats etc.)
- Product class IV:
Decoration/Furnishing materials (curtains, tablecloths, upholstery covers etc.)
The precondition for the certification of products in accordance with OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 is that all parts of an article meet the required criteria - in addition to the outer fabric, for example, also the sewing threads, inserts, prints etc., as well as non-textile accessories, such as buttons, zip fasteners, rivets etc.
Additional preconditions are the existence and application of operational quality assurance measures, as well as the legally binding signing of undertakings and conformity declarations by the applicant.
TLC Continuous Pour Process Latex Benefits:
•Uses Certified Pure 100% Latex Rubber
–No Fillers are added
–Fillers destroy the quality of the latex and negate the anti-microbial and anti-bacterial benefits of the latex
•All Seamless products
•There are no vertical glue seams to feel, eliminating multiple pieces being glued together to create King and Queen sizes. Leading to a more consistent feel
•Environmentally Friendly Process
•TLC Latex uses the only Continuous Pour Process Topper line that uses pins in the curing process
•MADE IN THE USA
Gel Latex resists Body Impressions and breakdown 57% better than Leading Visco
Latex has an open cell structure. This allows more room temperature air to flow through it, taking heat away from your body.
Benefit is that it regulates sleeping temperature!
Continuous Pour Process
•Formulation – Latex recipe is created by blending latex, soaps, and curing agents.
•Foaming- Latex is injected with air to create open consistent cell structure.
•Gel- Gelling agent is added to set latex and maintain consistent open cell structure.
•Pour – Latex is poured by robotic arm on to continuous moving conveyor form.
•Vulcanization- Latex is immediately heated to 220 degrees F to vulcanize rubber, locking in cell structure, shape and consistency.
•Wash/Squeeze – Latex is washed with fresh water and squeezed removing residual soaps and curing agents, leaving a cleaner longer lasting product
•Dry- latex goes thru final curing and drying process.
•Testing – Latex is ILD tested and weighed to insure consistent feel and density from core to core / topper to topper.
