MAPEI recently announced that SCS Global Services has issued its Indoor Advantage Gold certification for indoor air quality to over 255 of MAPEI’s products in the U.S. for low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Product categories to receive certification include architectural coatings, sealants, and adhesives.
The Indoor Advantage Gold certification is reportedly 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, and NAHB Green Building Standard. 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.
“This is a great accomplishment for MAPEI,” said Brittany Storm, MAPEI’s sustainability manager. “VOC emissions are among of our most requested sustainability-related certifications. We’re excited to share this accomplishment with our customers.”
