Sherwin-Williams Is Certified in the Product Lens Program

Sherwin-Williams announced that it has been certified in the new Product Lens program from UL (Underwriters Laboratories). The Product Lens report is an ingredient disclosure tool that provides hazard information across the lifecycle of a product and also considers risk and exposure, fulfilling industry demands for transparency.

The Product Lens program was designed with LEED v4 in mind and targets the Material Ingredients disclosure credit within the Building Product Design and Optimization grouping. Product Lens reports are third-party certified by UL Environment, which means that the materials have been independently evaluated for transparency and disclosure. Sherwin-Williams ProMar 200 Zero VOC Interior Latex Paint has been certified by the program.

“By partnering with UL on its Product Lens program, we can provide information to architects, specifiers and other purchasers in a format that is easy to understand and act upon,” says Steve Revnew, senior vice president of product innovation at Sherwin-Williams. “We want to partner with UL on Product Lens because its approach is relevant to the coatings industry. We’re pleased to add this program to our record.”

The Product Lens certification is a result of collaboration between UL Environment, MBDC and the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. The ProMar 200 VOC base formula has been assessed by MBDC and certified in the program for B20, B21, B24, B28, B30, B31 and B41 series products.

“The UL Product Lens report adds context and transparency about where the hazards exist within the value chain,” says Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager of UL Environment. “It adds value to manufacturers, such as Sherwin-Williams, who strive to be transparent in their chemical disclosures.”
