Green Label

Dunlop Carpet Cushion conforms to the strict standards set by the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label Indoor Air Quality Programme pertaining to carpet cushion.

The CRI Green Label Programme tests for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in cushion used under carpet. This programme is designed to help users identify and utilise low emission carpet cushion.

Cushion products that meet the required emission criteria are authorised to display the Green Label programme's green and white logo.  Products are re-tested regularly for continued compliance, so specifiers seeking a low-emitting cushion can confidently select one bearing the Green Label.

Dunlop Carpet Cushion is tested by an independent testing laboratory for Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs).  The limits specified by Carpet Rug Instititute requires the emission rates to be below the following criteria’s:

  • Total Volatile Organic Compounds 1.00 mg/m2 – hr

  • Formaldehyde 0.05 mg/m2 – hr
  • 4-PC (4-phenylcyclohexene) 0.05 mg/m2 – hr
