The Rubber Sheeting Quality Standards of Coruba

To ensure the welfare of each customer, as well as the environment, Coruba stocks rubber sheeting products  that comply with different regulatory agencies in the UK.

Here are some of them:

TÜV SÜD (PAHs Compliance)

Some of our products pass the Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) under TÜV SÜD, which is one of the leading technical service organisations in the world.

PAHs are chemicals formed during the incomplete burning of organic compounds such as coal, oil and gas. They are found in rubbers, petrochemicals and other products and are easily absorbed through the skin to harmful effect.

RoHS Certificate

The Restriction of Hazardous Substances or RoHS is a directive that prohibits the use of six harmful substances in the manufacture of different types of electronic and electrical equipment. These substances are:

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Cadmium (Cd)
  • Mercury (Hg)
  • Hexavalent chromium (Hex-Cr)
  • Polybrominated biphenyls (PBB)
  • Polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE)

A great many of our products are made with these four rubber compounds – Natural Rubber, Nitrile, Butyl and Neoprene. Intertek UK has tested them and proved that they are free from hazardous substances.

WRAS Marking

WRAS requires that any product that comes or will come into contact with potable water, such as Coruba’s Coru177 EPDM Rubber Sheet, must comply with the Water Fitting Regulations and display the WRAS mark accordingly.

CE Certificate

Conformité Européene”, more widely known as the CE mark, is commonly seen on products that comply with the necessary requirements under the European Union directives.

Most of our products are certified CE compliant and observe the following requirements:

  • The essential requirements of the CE marking regulations that apply to the product have been identified.
  • The conformity assessment against the essential requirements of the standards (visual inspection, testing, etc.) have been conducted and documented.
  • The related developments to CE regulations and European harmonised standards have been subjected to continuous monitoring.

ISO Standards

Founded in Switzerland in 1947, the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) is a setting board that is composed of delegates from different national standard bodies.

It sets the guidelines or specifications for all goods and services, ensuring they are safe for use and fit for purpose. They should be of a reliable and good quality.

REACH Compliance

REACH is a European Union for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation & restriction of Chemicals. It aims to protect human health and the environment from the harmful effects of chemicals.

Manufacturers that use chemicals in their production, including Coruba, must understand the effects of their chemical use and be responsible for observing the conducts of REACH.

FDA Certification

The Food and Drug Administration or FDA aims to protect public health by assuring the safety of human and veterinary drugs, medical devices, cosmetics and other biological products.

Rubbers that are used as hoses and seals by different food industries may come in contact with food and therefore they should comply with the FDA’s standards. Companies like Coruba provide FDA approved rubber products that are safe to use.

Coruba only provides the best rubber products that are suitable not only for practical use but also for the safety of the consumer.

NB. Please check the quality standards of each rubber product upon purchase as not all items comply.
