HENRY Adhesives Gain RFCI FloorScore Certification
The W.W. Henry Company, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of premium flooring and specialty adhesives has received the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) FloorScore® Certification for HENRY® 430 ClearPro™ Clear VCT (Vinyl Composition Tile) Adhesive and HENRY® 640 VinylLock™ Pressure Sensitive Vinyl Flooring Adhesive.
The RFCI FloorScore Certification includes independent testing of products for indoor air quality standards based on the California Section 01350 Program. Assessment is completed by Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), an independent third-party certification body that assesses flooring and adhesives through rigid tests to check for environmental air quality standards including volatile organic compound emissions (VOC’s). Certification also requires rigorous on-site audits at the manufacturer’s facilities to review product formulations, processes and quality control.
“We are very pleased to have achieved this important designation,” said Mike Crouch, CMO ARDEX Americas. “The RFCI FloorScore and the Carpet & Rug Institute’s CRI GreenLabel Plus certifications are independent industry standards that provide architectural and flooring installation professionals the necessary guidelines to assist them in obtaining valuable LEED certifications, an increasingly rapid growing requirement in new building construction and renovations. The W.W. HENRY Company is fully committed to the on-going development of high-performance products with outstanding environmental benefits.”

Liozu, President & CEO, ARDEX Americas. “HENRY was the first flooring adhesive brand to introduce solvent free adhesives.
