Focus on sustainability

Environmental standards at Centroplast

At Centroplast, we regard sustainability as an integral part of our corporate culture. We have established working methods that promote the sustainable treatment of resources and respect people and the environment.

Our responsibility goes beyond direct influences such as energy consumption, emissions, waste and waste water. In addition to efficient, resource-conserving products, we identify potentials for reducing energy consumption and pollutant emissions.

We consider not only direct but also indirect factors such as product life time, administrative decisions as well as the behaviour of our contractors.

We hardly working on reducing raw material waste every day. We continuously optimise material recycling through efficient work planning in order to make a sustainable contribution to conserving resources.

Quality management by Centroplast

Quality is not achieved at a single location –quality can only be achieved if everyone in the company stays continually focussed on this overall goal. For this reason, the high quality demands at Centroplast apply to every process.

From the first consultation with our customers about the manufacturing of thermoplastics in our in-house extrusion plant, their mechanical processing as well as delivery in exact quantities, on time at the agreed date of course – all of our workers live and breathe the "Total Quality Management System". Centroplast staff members take responsibility for this claim at all levels and are continuously involved in all optimisation processes.

PFAS Statement

We are committed to reducing PFAS (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) in our processes and products. This initiative emphasises our commitment to environmental protection and consumer safety. We are committed to full transparency and will report on our progress. 

PFAS Declaration

Our manufacturing is implemented in compliance with DIN 7168 medium or DIN 2768 medium tolerances for plastics. Random sample checking measurements and subsequent final testing with calibrated measurement and testing equipment are used to verify the product quality of our semi-finished parts and finished parts.

One-hundred percent quality checking for an order incl. documentation is also possible on request. All measurement and testing equipment is monitored at regular intervals and its calibration documented in test logs. We can also deliver our products with accompanying test logs on request.

Non-destructive testing of the semi-finished parts for cavities, inclusions and porosity is carried out at regular intervals with ultrasonic testing. Ultrasonic testing of semi-finished parts can generally be carried out during the checking procedures, with corresponding customer order.

Certification per DIN ISO 9001 shows that the quality standards at Centroplast are not just written on paper, but rather are in daily use. In addition, audits can be carried out by independent test centres.

Also, we can verify standards compliance for anything that impacts the end product itself: Of course our thermoplastics are produced and delivered in accordance with the quality standard DIN EN 15860.

For many of our customers, it is also important to know what approvals our plastics have, e.g. whether they are suitable for contact with foodstuffs. All of our approvals and certificates are available in the download area of our online portal AdvanceDock.

The certification per DIN ISO 9001 can also be found here

The REACh ordinance per EU directive 1907/2006/EC has been valid since 01.06.2007 and replaced the European chemical act which had been applicable until then.

REACh stands for:
R = Registration
E = Evaluation
A = Authorisation and Restriction
Ch = Chemicals

Amongst other things, the REACh ordinance requires that all substances (chemicals and preparations) produced in the EU, are pre-registered and registered with the European chemical agency (ECHA). The REACh ordinance applies to all chemicals and preparations.

Polymers are explicitly (per article 2, section 9) excepted from registration and evaluation. As a result, there is no mandatory registration for our semi-finished plastic parts and finished plastic parts.
