What are flooring underlays made of and why should they be low-emission?
Flooring underlays are products installed under laminate, parquet or carpet floorings. Their purpose is to absorb the impact sound, even out uneven subsurfaces and, by the way, combat cold feet. Flooring underlays are made of different materials, depending on the mode of application: for example, wood, paperboard, cork, rubber or various foam and non-foam plastics.

The materials are as different as are the respective environmental requirements for award of the Blue Angel. However, all flooring underlays must be low-emission because in order to guarantee a health-oriented floor structure all individual components – from adhesive to cover layer, including sealants – must be low-emission because it is an unpleasant characteristic of pollutants that they can also travel through the floorings.
