PROSOCO Products Certified to SCS Indoor Advantage Gold Air Quality Standard

PROSOCO, a manufacturer of resilient, high-performance coating and sealant products for the construction industry, has announced the certification of four of its products by SCS Global Services as conformant with the SCS Indoor Advantage Gold standard, one of the most stringent qualifiers of indoor air quality in the industry.

AirDam, FastFlash and Joint & Seam Filler are part of the PROSOCO R-GUARD family of products for preventing unwanted movement of water and air through building envelopes. Consolideck Concrete Protector is a penetrating water, oil and stain repellent designed for sustainable concrete floors.

“Our latest product certifications by SCS provide independent assurance to our customers that PROSOCO is fully committed to supporting a healthy indoor environment,” said Dwayne Fuhlhage, Sustainability and Environment Director for PROSOCO.

To be certified to the Indoor Advantage Gold standard, products must be independently tested by SCS-approved labs following specific protocols for measuring Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) emissions. Indoor Advantage Gold™ ensures full compliance with the California Department of Public Health’s “Standard Method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions from Indoor Sources.” Certification qualifies products to earn points under LEED v4, the widely adopted green building rating system developed by the US Green Building Council. Certification can also qualify products under the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Green Guide for Health Care for the low-emitting materials credits.

“PROSOCO was an early sustainability leader in the paints and coatings sector, continually improving product formulations and achieving independent verification of its stringent indoor air quality performance,” said Stowe Beam, SCS Director of Environmental Certification Services.

The four newly certified products represent just the latest in a long list of PROSOCO products that have earned this prestigious certification over the past six years.

Indoor air quality is just a fraction of PROSOCO’s commitment to the environment through high-performance, transparent and energy-efficient products. For example, FastFlash, Joint & Seam Filler, Consolideck LS and LS/CS conform to the Living Building Challenge v2.2 Red List, a requirement that made them the materials of choice for Seattle’s Bullitt Center, a net-zero energy building dubbed the “greenest commercial building in the world.”
