Santa Ana, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
Formulators, inventors and manufacturers of the patent pending Aquaflex™ waterproof flooring adhesive, announced that all formulation variants of the Aquaflex™ adhesive have for a second year met the criteria for Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS section 01350) and received the MAS Certified Green® Certificate of Compliance. Additionally, this unique patent pending, part bio-based adhesive meets South Coast Air Quality Management District’s (SCAQMD) Volatile Organic Content (VOC Rule 1168) and the USGBC LEED for super-low emitting materials.
"Formulators is again very pleased to receive IAQ certification for Aquaflex. It's simply not enough to provide solutions with innovative chemistry.
