Your questions, our answers

Our FAQ topics at a glance: you will find answers to frequently asked questions here.

Sustainability I Environmental protection

Environmental protection, a sparing approach to the resources at our disposal, and the creation of lasting solutions – these are the standards we set ourselves in our day-to-day business: from the initial product concept to waste disposal. To us, dealing in an environmentally friendly manner is essential. We have been investing in environmental technology for decades, thus cutting both our consumption of resources and our emissions.

We sponsor the “Responsible Care” initiative for responsible business dealings and a secure future. We are certified to the quality and environmental standard EN ISO 9001:2000!

We are also a member of the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council). All materials and processes are tested for their impact on health and on the environment.

Health I Odour I Workplace limit values

Our products are solvent-free. Nevertheless, the odour of our products is called into question time and time again. During application, the polymethyl methacrylate resins give off low concentrations of monomers, which have an unpleasant odour but are non-hazardous to health. Once the resins have cured fully, they no longer give off any nasty odour. If applied in a well-ventilated area outdoors, the workplace limit values are generally not exceeded. Products may only be applied indoors if sufficient ventilation has been arranged and, if necessary, using respiratory protection. When applying the liquid applied waterproofing products, the regulations and limit values stated in the Safety Data Sheet must be observed.

Areas of application for Triflex products

In principle, Triflex products and systems may be used indoors and outdoors. However, so that all of the factors at play indoors and the specific circumstances at the particular site can be adequately considered, clients or contractors should contact Triflex. The Triflex technical support team can then give detailed professional advice on the planned project: info@triflex.de

Disposal via Interseroh

Do I have to dispose of it via Interseroh?

No. Triflex uses its partnership with Interseroh to fulfil its legal obligation to take back packaging, relying on an established and experienced partner.
There is no obligation to take up this offer; other suppliers who meet the requirements can also undertake the disposal.

How do I find my local waste disposal company?

If an order form is sent to Interseroh for collection, the feedback includes the contact details to the local waste disposal company. 

In addition, most local disposal companies are under contract with Interseroh. You can clarify the point by making a brief enquiry with the current on-site partner. In most cases it is possible to continue working with the current local disposal company.

Where do I get the trough to set it up at my site?

The local waste disposal company on site will set up the troughs.

Which packaging will be taken back?

All Triflex packaging will be taken back – metal containers, plastic packaging, cardboard packaging, etc.

The different types (paper/cardboard, plastic, metal) must be kept separate.

IBCs will continue to be disposed of via the Schütz Ticket.

What is the minimum quantity for loose collection?

Interseroh arranges for the packaging to be collected from the customer. The items for collection will be in Big Bags or troughs. 

A “loose collection” can be arranged for the metal containers by agreement with Interseroh. There is a minimum collection quantity of 10 metal containers for this. 

The size of the Belch containers is irrelevant – there must be 10 containers of the same material. Our containers are made of tinplate.
