Gaco Western’s Closed-cell Foam Is Awarded GREENGUARD Certifications

Gaco Western‘s GacoOnePass (F1850)—a 2-pound density closed-cell foam, which can be sprayed in 4-inch passes and pass Appendix X without a coating—has been awarded UL Environment‘s GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD Gold Certifications.

Interior products can have a significant impact on indoor air quality, and can emit hundreds of chemicals into the air that building occupants breathe. Use of GREENGUARD Certified products contributes to the creation of healthier interiors. GREENGUARD Gold Certification (formerly known as GREENGUARD Children & Schools Certification) includes exceptionally low emissions limits to account for sensitive individuals, including children and the elderly. This certification makes GacoOnePass eligible for use on Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) projects and for points under the LEED green building certification program.

GacoOnePass can reduce labor costs by 50 percent or more and contribute to 20 to 30 percent higher yields than standard 2-pound foams when sprayed in one pass at 3- to 4-inch thickness. It is Appendix X approved for use without an additional ignition barrier and meets the requirement for a Class II vapor retarder at just 0.44 inch.
