Mapei Certifies Hundreds of Products as SCS Gold
Mapei Corp. has completed the certification process for SCS Indoor Advantage Gold 2021 and now has a total of more than 375 products in Canada and the U.S. that are certified for low volatile organic compounds.
These certifications include architectural coatings, sealants, adhesives, underlayments, Mapheat products, mats, membranes, accessories and more, as well as all of Mapei’s product portfolio that can be used in interior applications.
“We aimed to certify products so every project type, no matter how high or low the budget, can include healthy, sustainable products,” says Luigi Di Geso, president and CEO of Mapei North America.
Mapei products that include the certification have been vetted by an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) accredited, third-party certification body and tested by an industry-independent laboratory. This third-party certification also assures customers that a product’s environmental claims have been validated by a qualified, independent and objective organization.
Further, the SCS Indoor Advantage gold certification is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and General Services Administration, and qualifies for many green building rating systems, including Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), WELL, Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), Living Building Challenge and more.
Mapei will add all the certifications to its website, mindful materials database and sustainability reports in the near future.
