Test process and licencing

Independent testing laboratory – independent licencing partner

All kinds of products are qualified to apply for one of our flustix seals. Each product or component has to pass through a multitiered plastic-testing method prior to the awarding of the flustix seal.

If a company intends to get certified by our independant seal, ten items need to be sent to flustix and our partner laboratory for testing. The chemical experts at the lab test the item thoroughly using the latest analytical methods. These results give conclusive grounds for the awarding of the plastic-free certificate through our licensing partner DIN CERTCO.
