EU ECOLABEL: EL/044/003
Indoor Air Quality
Products with this marking are certified by Eurofins, the international accredited control laboratory for Volatile Organic Compounds, and are classified in the upper class A + in terms of indoor air quality.
ΕΝ 13300 & EN ISO 11998
The products with the corresponding label are certified by accredited laboratories for their resistance to washing and cleaning according to EN 13300 and EN ISO 11998.

Cool paints have increased values of reflection in solar radiation and high values of infrared emission factor. They isolate the surface and reduce its temperature thus offer significant energy savings for cooling during the summer and heating during the winter. They contribute to the mitigation of the urban heat island (UHI) effect and improve the microclimate of cities.
Green Building Evaluation System
LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Available for almost all types of buildings, LEED provides a framework for green buildings that are healthy, highly efficient and cost effective. At ER-LAC we have certified our products for use in green buildings based on the latest version LEED v4.1.
Products that contain UV protection filters
Products with this label contain special UV filters that provide complete protection against UV radiation and offer a longer shelf life in the final paint.
Nanotechnology products contain elements in the NANO scale. The incorporation of nanotechnology elements into surface protection can provide increased adhesion, elasticity, penetration, hardness, hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity. Innovative nanotechnology products can have pioneering properties such as self-healing and photocatalysis.
Safety of toys
EN 71-3:2019 + A1:2021
The paints and varnishes, certified with the Toy Safety, European Standard EN 71-3: 2019 + A1: 2021 can be used on children’s toys and furniture, as they have been evaluated for the non-migration of heavy metals.
