HENRY Adhesives Certified By Carpet & Rug Institute’s
New Green Label Plus Program
Aliquippa, PA August 8, 2005 – With the growing demand to specify and use more environmentally friendly building materials, the W.W. HENRY Company remains the leader in the area of low VOC, low odor floor covering adhesives with the recent certification of three of its adhesives under The Carpet & Rug Institute’s new Green Label Plus Program.
The three HENRY Adhesives receiving certification are: HENRY GL-62 High Performance Carpet Adhesive; HENRY H-630 PeachPro™ Pressure Sensitive Adhesive; and HENRY H-351 FastPro™ Carpet Adhesive. Testing of other HENRY Adhesives is currently underway.
Green Label Plus, a voluntary industry testing program for carpet and adhesive products, establishes the highest standard for indoor air quality (IAQ) ever set by the carpet industry. The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) created Green Label Plus to identify carpets and adhesives that are tested by an independent, certified laboratory and meet stringent criteria for low chemical emissions.
Under new testing guidelines, adhesives must undergo a 14-day testing process for 10 compounds, as required by Section 01350 guidelines, plus five additional compounds, as required by CRI, and meet or exceed criteria of the “Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) Low-Emitting Materials Credit 2” for use in a typical classroom. This listing is consistent with the “07900 Adhesives, Sealants, Concrete Sealers” section of CHPS Compliant Materials.
According to Stuart Averbach, HENRY National Account Manager, “While in many respects, California leads the way in “green building product” initiatives for school and public building renovation and new construction, this is a rapidly growing national concern which we are addressing aggressively with the support of the Carpet & Rug Institute.”
