As an eco-responsible company, we are firmly committed to working with four main approaches :

Environmental Approach, Quality Approach, Health & Safety Approach, Societal Approach.

Environmental approach

Life cycle assessment is a global and multi-criteria assessment tool for the environmental impacts related to the sale of our coatings on the world market.

We are working on the 6 phases of the life-cycle of our coatings: purchasing of our raw materials, eco-formulation of our coatings, production, transport, on-site application of our coatings and sorting/recycling of our waste products.

Purchasing our raw materials

  • Preferential selection of European raw materials;
  • Selection of eco-committed suppliers offering bio-based or recycled raw materials;
  • Use of recyclable packaging and reduction of our soiled packaging;
  • Leak-proof storage of our raw materials.

Eco-formulation of our coatings

  • High-tech products for optimum efficiency;
  • Optimized use of bio-based and recycled raw materials in our formulas;
  • Formulation of coatings containing no volatile solvent;
  • Regulatory monitoring to limit the use of Dangerous Chemical Agents.

Production process

  • Continuous improvement of the energy cost / production ratio;
  • Reduction of the water consumption of our industrial processes;
  • Leak-proof storage of our semi-finished and finished products;
  • Presence of a disconnector to avoid the risk of pollution of the distribution network;
  • Monitoring of our gas emissions by a suction network controlled annually by an external laboratory;
  • Annual measurement of the quality of the factory’s rainwater and groundwater by an external laboratory.


  • Optimization of our transport-related air pollution by using a single transit platform that groups together our shipments;
  • Safe transport in compliance with the Goods Transport regulations (documentation and signage);
  • Annual audit by a Dangerous Goods (ADR) safety advisor.

Application of our coatings

Our solutions are applied by companies whose personnel has been trained by MAX PERLÈS. They contribute to:

  • The reduction of Non Revenue Water (NRW) by eliminating the leaks from potable water reservoirs, tanks and treatment plants : AQUAPERL® range;
  • The reduction of groundwater pollution due to infiltration of wastewater, hydrocarbons and other liquid industrial effluents : BIOPERL®, TECHNOPERL®, PETROPERL® ranges;
  • The reduction of emissions into the atmosphere of industrial gases : TECHNOPERL® and GAZOPERL® ranges;
  • Our participation in the safety of nuclear and thermal power plants: ELECTROPERL® range.

Managing our waste

  • Sorting and recovery of our recoverable industrial waste (stretch films, paper / cardboard, label backbones, metal, D3E, pallets);
  • Membership of ECO-DDS: declaration and regulation of our eco-contribution to the collection, sorting and treatment of waste related to the activity of our customers;
  • Recycling of unused semi-finished products in mainstream production (subject to laboratory control);
  • Recovery of soiled packaging.

Quality Approach

As a guarantee of reliability and quality, we regularly invest in our R&D and production tools, as well as in our human resources, to offer high-performance coatings, tested and certified by independant laboratories and organizations.

R&D and production

  • Technological watch and investment in new mechanical and chemical characterization tools;
  • Operational control of the production and quality of our products;
  • Durability and sustainability of our coating systems;
  • “Made in France” design, formulation and production;
  • Continuous improvement of customer training, support and on-site services;
  • Flexible production capacity.

Human resources

  • Commitment and flexibility of our employees;
  • Responsiveness and proactiveness of our technico-commercial team;
  • On-site training and technical support by our Technical Assistance Service;
  • Dedicated Quality, Security, Environment ( QSE) department.


  • ISO9001 certification since 1996;
  • CE-marking certification since 2017.


  • Implementation of an integrated management system with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001;
  • In the process of obtaining ISO 19943 certification (nuclear safety standard);
  • Preparing for ISO 26000 CSR standard.

Health & Safety Approach

At Max Perlès, the health and safety of our customers, employees and partners is given top priority:

Our customers

  • Protection of our business data and responsible processing of information: GDPR requirements on our website;
  • Compliance with CLP regulations and provision of safety data sheets: classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.

Our staff

  • Prioritization of prevention actions according to the 9 general principles of prevention;
  • Regular firefighting training for all the staff;
  • Awareness of safety rules (quarter of an hour security training every 3 months);
  • Storage by compatibility and nature of our raw materials to limit risks related to chemical incompatibilities;
  • Health monitoring by measuring exposure to Dangerous Chemical Agents (ACD) and by acoustic measurement;
  • APSAD certification attesting to the quality of an anti-intrusion fire safety system with remote monitoring.

Our partners

  • Implementation of on-site intervention protocols for external service companies;
  • Property boundary noise measurements carried out by an external laboratory every 5 years.

Our objectives

  • The reduction of the number of ACDs (Dangerous Chemical Agents) present in our coatings;
  • The implementation of further preventive actions for our employees;
  • To obtain a MASE certification (security standard).

Societal Approach

  • Very strong integration of MAX PERLÈS in the local economic fabric, testifying to its territorial anchorage;
  • Quality of life at work and talent development;
  • Absence of gender discrimination;
  • Ethical Rules;
  • Code of conduct required from our suppliers and service providers;
  • Apprenticeship policy;
  • Use of all locally-provided services;
  • Progressive de-materialization of our documentation;
  • Use of cleaner vehicles (electric or hybrid).
