TFI procedure based on the Swiss standard SNV 195 651

The odor assessment provides a timely statement about the sensors. This method is integrated into the labels of the GUT and the Blue Angel (DE-UZ 128) for textile floor coverings.

ISO 16000-28 – Determination of odor emissions with an emission test chamber

The test is mandatory for the award criteria of DE-UZ 128 (Blue Angel) for floor coverings and for the M1 label. The sensory parameters of the perceived intensity, acceptance, and hedonics are determined.
