General comment
Best In Class overall performance nano TRIBRID acrylic water-based emulsion paint for exterior walls. Scope and type: The type of this EPD is Cradle-to-Grave. All steps from the extraction of natural resources to re-application and the final disposal of the product are included in the environmental performance. This EPD is an average EPD representative for ACRYLAN MAX products produced in Greece and sold in Europe. The paint is produced in Aspropyrgos Attiki, Greece and the application market is for customers within the European region. Likewise, for the end-of-life, the fate of the paint product is described within a European context. The software GaBi is used to perform the LCA. Background processes sourced from Ecoinvent v3.6 2019 and the Raw materials LCI database for the European coatings and printing ink industries 2016.

ACRYLAN MAX white 2. ACRYLAN MAX base white 3. ACRYLAN MAX base medium 4. ACRYLAN MAX base transparent This EPD is representative for the products manufactured in Greece and sold in Europe. The paint is produced at one production site: Imeros Topos, 19300 Aspropyrgos Attiki, Greece. Calculation rules: Data quality and data collection period Data quality requirements follow EN15804+A2:2019, data is checked for plausibility with mass balances in the foreground processes. Used datasets are complete according to the system boundary, and are as current as possible. Data collection period is of reference year 2021, based on 1 year averaged data. Data gaps such as i.e. transport data, end of life scenarios, were covered with data generic values for transport as described in the Product Environmental Footprint Category Rules - Decorative Paints document version 1.0 published by CEPE and reviewed in April 2018. Processes used in the background modelling are referring to the widely used databases of recent release Ecoinvent 3.6, 2019; CEPE, 2016 and are consistent with the foreground modelling in system limits and allocation procedures. The technological and geographical coverage reflects the physical reality as far as possible taking into account the technology mix, location, and representativeness of technologies, input materials, and input energies for the region. Data quality is assessed as fair and adequate to the goal and scope of the study. Cut-off criteria and allocation procedures No cut-offs were intentionally applied to inputs and outputs within the system boundaries in the models. Coproduct and system allocation in the foreground system is according to the EN15804+A2. Cut-off and allocation procedures in the background processes are according to the respective methodologies and estimated to be methodologically consistent with the foreground system.

This life cycle stage includes the extraction and processing of raw materials for the product and the packaging, their transportation to the production site by road, and the manufacturing process. The latter includes all processes linked to the production, such as storing, mixing, packing, and internal transportation, covering material and energy consumption, waste treatment and emissions. Data regarding paint production was provided for each paint variation formulation and for the production site for the shared processes. Data on packaging, transportation distances and transportation modes are derived from the default scenarios of the product environmental footprint category rules PEF CR for decorative paints v.1 2018. Electricity consumption was modelled based on the primary data on the amount and source of the electricity, with the use of Ecoinvent 3.6 database for modelling of the background processes. Product's distribution to the building site A4 includes transportation as well as storage and wastage of the products along the distribution leg formally A4-A5, classified within the study to A4. The distribution leg includes two intermediate points between the production site and the final user: regional distribution centre RDC and point of sales PoS. Stage B1 refers to the paint use and follows the scenario of use developed in the PEF CR for decorative paints v1, including leaching biocides during the use stage. Transport and storage data are based on the scenarios developed within the PEF CR for Decorative Paints v1.

The manufacturing facilities are equipped with the 10000 m² roof solar park that supplies electricity to the grid. In the period under evaluation, 763,25 kWh is supplied to the electricity grid, which potentially could have covered 49,5% of the total yearly electricity demand of the company.
