We are even more thrilled to be using products that come from a company dedicated to low emissions and Â the LEED Â standards for building a Â moreÂ environmentallyÂ friendly (ie: "Green") building.
Hydroment by Bostik publishes a "Low VOC Â Product Portfolio" that lists the products and 4 different methods of VOC measurement. Â Kudos to Hydroment for the for the incredibly in-depth information, although it can be quite confusing for the layperson.
Hydroment's 4 levels of VOC measurement are:
- Product VOC Weight percentage
- NAHB Model Green Home Guideline (based on the California Air Resource Board VOC levels)
- Product VOC g/L
- US Green Building Council LEED-NC/LEED-H Standard (based on South Coast Air Quality Management District VOC Levels) g/L
You catch that? Whew! Â This is to no fault of Hydroment but rather the multiple "green" standards in existence todayÂ (and why it is difficult to distinguish the shades of Â "Green" and easy for companies to take advantage of this- but that is for another time.)
We applaud the commitment of the Hydroment brand and look forward to other companies in the grout/sealants/coatings market following suit.
