RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The cork that is used is not a regular industry cork. It is a Special produced and tested material for PLES GmbH. It is tested in accordance to the EU Toy regualation EN71 and the US Regulation ASTM. In both markets and in Addition in the Japanese market, the toy has passed all requirements. For that reason the toy is allowed and can be used from the Age of 1+. All the toy safety standards do prove the physical stability. There is no toxic or poisoning danger. The material is free of phthalate and aromas and there is no danger of heavy metals. Also our KORXX colors are especially developed for KORXX, to have the highest safety standards in the industry. In addition to the above mentioned international toy safety standards, our colors are ultra anit-allergen. (will say- they are super ideal for people with an allergic disposition) Origin of KORXX cork: Our cork is harvested in accordance to the sustainability forest regulations FSC. Cork by its origin is super sustainable as the cork oak tree can be harvested for generation, over 100 years long. In this live time period the tree absorbs massive CO2 and helps the climate to be stable. Every little piece of the cork itself can be and is used during its lifecycle and at the end it is just an natural products without harm for our nature.

CHALLENGE:
As the safety aspect with toys is the most important, it has been crucial to produce a cork material that is free of any detectable Toxin. The KORXX material is now such a safe material. Within the desing Phase it was then important to have deep understanding of the material caracteristic such as the specific weight, the Surface structure and the density and stabability of the material. Qustions like, how thin the materila can be made with out an breaking danger have to be solved.
