PERFECT FIT PU-Undelay Material | Windmöller GmbH
PU underlay mats are made from the best, natural ingredients. The basis is ecuran, a high-performance composite material made predominantly from vegetable oils such as rapeseed or castor oil and naturally occurring mineral components such as chalk. Critical ingredients such as plasticizers, solvents or chlorine are completely avoided. At the same time, it does not compromise on performance - a revolution, not only for floorings.
Underlay mats made of bio-PU are environmentally and health friendly, quiet and durable, even heavy furniture does not leave permanent impressions in the material. Above all, the mats allow heat to pass through well: The floor heats up quickly and with it the whole room.
Thus, the feel-good time begins earlier and saves energy: a bio-PU underlay reduces heating costs.
Whether laminate flooring, vinyl flooring or parquet - PU underlays from wineo are available as a combination for various types of flooring.
PU underlay mats installed in a system with PURLINE organic flooring offers the best combination of sustainability, durability and performance.
By resorting to bio instead of petrochemicals for the production of the high-performance composite material ecuran, which consists mainly of vegetable oils such as rapeseed or castor oil and naturally occurring mineral components such as chalk, we are making an innovative contribution to protecting the environment.
Renewable raw materials are very important in the production of PU-underlays. At our production site in Detmold, Germany, more than 7,000 tonnes of castor oil are processed per year. This makes it possible to produce a physiologically and toxicologically harmless soil solution.
Chalk and sand are also used as fillers at the Detmold site. Since chalk is absolutely harmless and is only ground for processing, it is ideally suited as a filler.
With our wineo PU-underlays we’ve developed a product that, that does not contain added chlorine, plasticizers or solvents. It is free of noxious evaporations and therefore does not release harmful pollutants into the room air.
Transparency is important to us. For this reason, the formulations of our ecuran-based products are tested and evaluated by independent institutes. This includes regular inspections by external testing bodies, such as EPEA (C2C) and TÜV Proficert. The results are consistently sustainable: emission values & ingredients of ecuran-based products meet the highest requirements - free from PVC, formaldehyde or plasticisers. In addition, we draw up our own life cycle assessments for each production site. These help us to continuously reflect on our sustainability development.
Our PU-underlays are cradle-to-cradle silver certified. The certificate was awarded after an extensive examination process. Five categories were evaluated:
Material Health (Materialgesundheit)
Our PU-underlays are free from CMR ingredients (carcinogenic, mutagenic and reprotoxic substances) and complies with cradle to cradle emission standards.
Circular Economy (Kreislauffähigkeit)
Our PU-underlays are recyclable and contain a high proportion of rapidly renewable raw materials.
Through the use of renewable energy, the use of renewable raw materials and the optimisation of production processes, greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by more than 90 %.
No water is consumed in the production process and no sewage is produced (other than for sanitary purposes only).
Socially responsible production of raw materials and above-average social standards for the benefit of employees.
As a manufacturer and producer, we have a particular responsibility to protect both the environment and our climate. We take our environmental responsibility seriously and strive every day to play our part. Making a conscious effort to use valuable energy sources carefully is as fundamental to us as covering our energy requirements with renewable energy sources. During our development phase, as well as when procuring raw materials, we always look for the best solution in ecological terms.
We have installed state-of-the-art photovoltaic units at our Augustdorf and Detmold sites which supply electricity to our manufacturing facilities and feed unused energy to the public network.
On average, we produce a total of approximately 950,000 kWh every year. By way of comparison, this amount of solar energy would power more than 200 electric cars for a whole year.
In both production and internal transport, we rely on e-mobility, which we are constantly advancing.
By generating our own energy using solar systems and the energy station in Augustdorf, as well as purchasing climate-neutral energy, we have been able to reduce the carbon footprint of the sites by around 6,500 tonnes of CO2 equivalents compared to the use of conventional energy sources.
In addition, care is taken to use water responsibly. No water is consumed in the production process and no waste water is produced (for sanitary purposes only).
