The majority of our marine products are certified by independent notified bodies and comply with the specific requirements laid down in the European Marine Equipment Directive (MED).
Certified products can be identified by the EC logo, which offers proof that the product has passed the IMO tests for low flame spread.
Our Simson MSR CA (slow skin formulation) products have also been tested and certified according to DNV-GL structural glazing procedures - approved as class A and B adhesives for nautical window bonding.
Our product quality is ensured by regular control of the quality systems implemented in our development and production facilities.
