SundaHus Material Data

Through a documentation of chemical substances, the SundaHus Material Data system creates the foundation for a systematic approach to monitoring the contents of a building over time.

The assessment of products is based on various properties and divided into five levels D, C-, C+, B or A – where A is the best.

Assessments are carried out by SundaHus chemists, who review product content information and request additional information if necessary.

A-rated products:

  • have minimal health or environmental impacts associated with the PRIO properties defined in the Swedish Chemicals Agency Priority Guide PRIO
  • are not classified as hazardous to health or the environment during the construction phase
  • do not affect the indoor environment negatively through high emissions of volatile organic compounds
  • give minimal contribution to smog formation
  • do not emit excessive levels of formaldehyde (i.e. E1 class compliant)
  • provide a minimal strain on natural resources and less material to landfill deposits
  • have a long service life (for selected product groups)
  • are not likely to contribute to unsustainable forestry
  • have good transparency regarding the product contents
