The green certification reflects the company commitment to manufacturing standard, consumers’ safety and environmental protection. The Weber brand aims to raise public awareness of its green-label products and their significance in support of the goal to raise green-product percentage in its total sales to 20 before year-end.
Natthapong Singhsilarak, technical and product director, Saint-Gobain Weber Co Ltd, says the Green Label initiative is a collaboration of the Thailand Environment Institute, the Thailand Business Council for Sustainable Development (TBCSD), and the Industry Ministry’s Thai Industrial Standards Institute. Under this project, green labels are awarded to quality products that have less environmental impacts than others in the same product category. The certification helps inform consumers of environmentally-friendly choices.
Saint-Gobain Weber say it is proud that its weber.color slim (for joint width between 0.2-3mm) and weber.color power (for joint width between 1-6mm) have won the green label from the initiative.
“With the conviction that one can start making a better environment, the firm is true to its We Care slogan,” the company said.
“Saint-Gobain Weber always cares about its consumers and the environment. Consumers’ safety and benefits are the top priority throughout its operation.
“The certified green products from Weber of Gecko Trademark, also the first tile grout products to have won such certification in Thailand, are perfect for use in all areas particularly the often-damp bathrooms and kitchens. These two grout products are also very safe to consumers because they have passed the low volatile organic compounds (low VOCs) test.
“Weber.color slim is recommended for grouting between large tiles, Granito tiles, marble tiles, granite tiles, which usually have the width of just between 0.2 and 3mm. Weber.color power, meanwhile, is for the joint width of between 1 and 6 mm.
“Both are anti-fungus and resistant to crack/scratch. Moreover, they enhance adhesive force and boast solid resistance to corrosion by general chemical solutions. On top of this, they work fine for both interior and exterior works.”
