Introducting the Staron® Solid Surfaces ‘Encore Collection’. The Encore Collection has been created with a selection of four Staron® colours certified to contain pre-consumer recycled content. Staron® Sanded Noir contains a minimum 30%, Aspen Mine and Aspen Snow contain a minimum 10% and Pebble Seastar contains a minimum 5% pre-consumer recycled resin and chip content.

The certification, issued by Scientific Certification Systems, a leader in certifying independent environmental claims, recognises Staron® for the use of recycled material. The SCS Material Content Certification verifies that Samsung is working responsibly to minimise environmental impact during the manufacturing process. Using recycled content helps conserve energy and resources, alleviates pressure on landfill space and reduces the need for transportation during certain phases of a product’s life cycle. For more information about Scientific Certification Systems or a list of certified products, please visit www.SCScertified.com.

Staron® Solid Surface has been granted GREENGUARD certification by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute for its Staron® Solid Surface material, including the new Staron® Tempest range, and Staron® sinks and bowls.

Each of the product lines has passed the requirements of two GREENGUARD certification programs. GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® product certification is granted for low-emitting interior building materials, furnishings and finish systems. The more stringent GREENGUARD for Children & Schools certification is granted for low-emitting interior building materials, furnishings and finish systems used in educational (daycare and K-12) environments.

The successful two-month certification process included a 168-hour period during which the Staron® products were tested for potential off-gassing of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as formaldehyde.
