certification

Top quality

As the global market leader in the manufacture of silver-coated fabrics with over 40 years of experience in silvering textiles, we combine expertise with innovative product ideas.

OEKO-TEX®

Shieldex has already been certified for various silver-coated textiles in product class I in accordance with STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® since 2003.

ISO 9001

As semi-finished and finished products, Shieldex products are guaranteed halogen-free and our quality management system has been certified according to ISO 9001 since 2002.

REACH

The new European chemicals regulation REACH, with specifications for all manufacturers and users of chemical substances, entered into force on 1st June 2007.
According to REACH, all substances that are produced or imported in quantities over 1t per year must be registered with the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). Compulsory pre-registration and registration thus only apply to manufacturers and importers of chemicals. Statex GmbH is only a downstream user who uses the chemicals in a preparation. Statex exclusively uses the supplied chemicals according to the specifications of the safety data sheet. Based on the currently available candidate list of substances of very high concern (SVHC), Statex confirms that the supplied goods (the actual product and the packaging) do not contain over 0.1 per cent by weight (w/w) of any of the substances classified as carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction in category 1 or 2 in the Annex to Directive 67/548/EEC. You can find the current candidate list at:
echa.europa.eu/de/candidate-list-table

Conflict Minerals

Shieldex expressly distances itself from the introduction as well as the use of raw materials from conflict regions (Dodd Frank Act, § 1502). These raw materials are neither processed in our products nor passed on to our customers.

Code of Conduct

The trust of our employees and customers in our company and products is our most valuable asset. Sincere and morally impeccable conduct consolidates social trust and protects our company, our employees and our environment. This includes knowing - and complying with - the applicable legal requirements and internal rules. The Code of Conduct therefore forms the basis of our actions.
