Deerfield Beach, Fla.—MAPEI said the SCS Global Services has issued its Indoor Advantage Gold certification for indoor air quality for over 255 of MAPEI’s products (in the U.S.) for low VOC emissions in various categories including architectural coatings, sealants and adhesives.
By selecting MAPEI’s certified products, customers can be assured that the products have been thoroughly vetted by an ISO-accredited, third-party certification body and tested by an industry-independent laboratory. Third-party certification also assures customers that a product’s environmental claims have been validated by a qualified, independent and objective organization.
The Indoor Advantage Gold certification is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and General Services Administration (GSA). It qualifies for many green-building rating systems, including LEED v4, the WELL Building Standard, BREEAM, Living Building Challenge, NAHB Green Building Standard and more. It also conforms with CDPH Standard Method v1.2-2017 (CA 01350) for the school classroom, private office and single-family residence parameters as well as SCAQMD Rule 1113 for architectural coatings and Rule 1168 for Adhesives and Sealants.
All of these certifications will be added to MAPEI’s website, the mindful MATERIALS (mM) database and MAPEI Sustainability Product Reports in the near future. “This is a great accomplishment for MAPEI,” said Brittany Storm, sustainability manager at MAPEI Corporation. “VOC emissions are among of our most requested sustainability-related certifications. We’re excited to share this accomplishment with our customers.”
MAPEI previously offered 82 certified products and now offers over 255 certified products across its largest product lines, including tile & stone installation systems, floor covering installation systems and concrete restoration systems.
