TÜV Rheinland issues Lynk & Co 05 China-mark certification for vehicle-level solid particulates/aerosol filtering protection
In his speech, Zhong Yuebing said: “During this time of epidemic, Lynk & Co is showing its caring for consumers with practical actions and escorting the health of drivers and passengers. Lynk & Co has always practiced the ‘user-centric’ brand model, and will continue to improve its technological strength, to bring experiences to consumers worldwide that are more environmentally safe and of superior product value.”
“As the world’s leading technical service provider, TÜV Rheinland has been committed to benchmarking advanced standards with its own advantages, and providing support and solutions in areas where standards are urgently needed,” said Xia Bo. “Considering the urgent needs of domestic consumers to improve the air quality in vehicle interiors, TÜV Rheinland has launched the industry’s first solid particulates/aerosol filtering protection performance standard for whole vehicles, helping car companies to continuously improve the air quality in cars and protect the health and safety of drivers and passengers.”
Through research and comparison of more than 40 international and domestic standards, TÜV Rheinland’s technical experts have referenced the protective mask standard GB 2626-2006, the medical mask standard GB 19083-2010, the domestic air purifier standard GB/T 18801-2015, the cabin filter standard GB/T 32085.1-2015, and other requirements, combined with the vehicle characteristics, to develop the vehicle-level solid particulates/aerosol filtering protection performance standard 2PfG CH0005:2020-02, along with detailed test methods and certification processes.
The certification process starts with verification of the protective mask-level filtering efficiency of the air-conditioning filter, assessing the speed with which the air-conditioning ventilation system purifies polluted air flowing in when doors and windows are open and maintains micro-positive pressure throughout the interior (shielding entry of external pollution into the interior without passengers being aware). Requirements are in place comprehensively testing the aerosol filtration efficiency of the vehicle interior under current technical conditions, reaching more than 95%.
It is worth mentioning that China-mark certification is TÜV Rheinland’s response to the needs of local customers in the Chinese market. Its main goals are to enhance awareness of domestic brands and pursue quality excellence. The certification relies on TÜV Rheinland’s testing experience in China, a strong technical team, and brand advantages to help consumers identify high-quality, high-performance products in the domestic market.
