One of the first activities of Newform LAB was to stimulate the creation of a product with a low environmental impact.
Despite the features of a product in line with the typical Newform high-quality levels , the LAB worked to obtain a more sustainable solution both as regards materials, consumptions and substances used during the production cycle, and as per the product features in its life on the Market.
The result is LINFA. An elegant collection, with a minimal design associated which manufacturing features which enhance its ecological portrait.
Newform LAB wanted the product to limit environmentally harmful emissions as well as to contain the operating costs. The goal has been reached thanks to some solutions, among which the innovative cartridge positioning – fully cold water (instead of mixed one) while opening the handle to avoid heater ignition, reducing in this way both CO2 emissions in atmosphere and energy consumption.
The LAB took also into consideration the water consumption, of course. Normally, a basin mixer has got a flow of 10 lt./min. A simple flow reducer allows to limit the flow to 5 lt/min, granting as well a full-bodied jet, rich of air.
However, Newform LAB paid also particular attention to the production processes, to grant the product ecological feature right from the beginning.
The PWP treatment (Pure Water Process) which is carried out on metal, prevents the release in the potable water of toxic metals such as Lead (toxic by ingestion) and Nickel (apart from being toxic, it is responsible for many contact allergies).
Finally, the LAB decided that LINFA collection has to be submitted to an internal anti-bacterial treatment to prevent bacteria from growing in the backwater inside the tap.
Of course we could not forget the package, which is made of recycled cardboard and non-toxic and recyclable materials.
