Our products meet high environmental standards and may contribute to the variety of certification systems that are available to today’s design community. From tiles and treads to wall base and adhesives, our products meet high environmental standards without compromising color selection, performance, durability or style.

As we continue to make improvements in our products, we have also set aggressive goals that we seek to accomplish by 2025 within our facilities:

Sustainability requires work and complex decision-making. Over the decades, we have continuously worked with raw material suppliers and with the test laboratory and production lines to improve the formulations for Roppe’s products – always preserving durability and improving aesthetics while reducing hazardous components.

Materials science is an important issue for the architectural community, and the precautionary principle is becoming an industry standard through our customers’ efforts. This EPD reflects that new understanding, with energy and water reductions highlighted.

health product declaration - ESD vinyl static control tile

Roppe ESD Vinyl Static Control Tile is a vinyl flooring product designed to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) related damage. To control the static charge, Roppe combines conductive or dissipative vinyl tile with a specially-formulated conductive adhesive. This creates a conductive pathway which allows the static to flow through the tile and along the adhesive to the ground point. That makes Roppe ESD static control vinyl flooring an effective first-choice solution to control unwanted human body voltage in areas where employee mobility cannot be restricted by grounding wrist straps. Roppe ESD Vinyl Static Control Tile is formulated with Bioplasticizer and no post-consumer recycled content is used, eliminating the possibility of contamination by ortho-phthalates. These products are manufactured without the use of toxic heavy metals such as Lead, Cadmium, Chromium VI, or Arsenic and the PVC resin used is manufactured without using Mercury cell and Asbestos membranes. Roppe's ESD Vinyl Static Control Tile formulation is screened according to current authoritative lists and does not contain any substances of very high concern (SVHC) on the REACH candidate list or substances restricted under REACH.

NSF/ANSI 332

Sustainability Assessment for Resilient Floor Coverings is the foremost standard by which to evaluate and certify sustainability of resilient flooring products across their entire product life cycle. NSF/ANSI 332 was developed by the NSF National Center for Sustainability Standards (NCSS) through a consensus-based public process with a multi-stakeholder group of manufacturers, suppliers, regulatory agencies, academicians and other industry participants. The standard communicates thorough information that is verifiable, science-based and credible about environmental and social aspects associated with the production and use of resilient floor coverings.

Based on a life cycle assessment approach, NSF/ANSI 332 employs a point system to evaluate resilient flooring against established prerequisite requirements, performance criteria and quantifiable metrics in six key areas:

  • Product design
  • Product manufacturing
  • Long-term value
  • End-of-life management
  • Corporate governance
  • Innovation
