DEMILEC (USA) LLC.® Receives GREENGUARD Certifications for Environmentally Friendly Spray Foam Insulation
GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by a number of Green building programs, including the United States Green Building Council’s (USBGC) LEED®.
August 14, 2008 - Arlington, TX - DEMILEC (USA) LLC.®’s HEATLOK SOY® spray foam insulation has received multiple GREENGUARD certifications because of its ability to meet stringent emission standards. DEMILEC (USA), which is based in Arlington, TX, is an international manufacturer and distributor of spray foam insulations.
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) awarded its coveted GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified® and the more-stringent GREENGUARD Children and SchoolsSM certifications to HEATLOK SOY® because it promotes and protects indoor air quality by creating an airtight glove around the building that blocks dust, dirt and allergens from permeating the walls. Since HEATLOK SOY® and other DEMILEC (USA)’s spray foam insulations never deteriorate or decompose, they also contribute to a healthy indoor environment because they don’t have a high level of emissions, which would contribute to poor indoor air quality inside the structure.
HEATLOK SOY® is a closed-cell, rigid spray foam insulation that uses recycled plastic materials and soy oil to create its polyurethane base.
To achieve GREENGUARD Certification, a product must undergo rigorous emissions testing by an independent laboratory using testing guidelines issued by GEI. GEI is an industry-independent, non-profit organization that certifies building products and materials, and sets worldwide standards for safe emissions levels.
