Being recognized by an independent research group for meeting and exceeding their benchmarks for environmental safety is a real accomplishment in which we take a lot of pride.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) September 25, 2018
NAPCO, Ltd. (North American Polymer Company), a national home refinishing and refinishing training company, received notice from Coatings Research Group, Inc. (CRGI) that its Kitchen Renew Satin Clear Coating for Countertops can be labeled, “Green Wise.” Products bearing the Green Wise label have been tested and certified by CRGI to meet environmentally determined performance standards established by CRGI’s ISO-accredited facility for specific types of products and meet or exceed the VOC requirements of LEED® for most applications.
“Gaining Green Wise certification from the Coatings Research Group for the product that launched our kitchen refinishing division is an accomplishment for the entire NAPCO team,” stated Steve Zamborsky, Head of Research and Development and Technical Manager for NAPCO. “Our team has worked on creating more environmentally friendly, waterborne coatings for some time. Being recognized by an independent research group for meeting and exceeding their benchmarks for environmental safety is a real accomplishment in which we take a lot of pride,” he added.
The CRGI Green Wise certified product with < 100 g/L (VOC Limit scale) that was developed at the Skokie, Illinois-based company was the first to roll out in NAPCO’s expansion from bathroom and bathtub refinishing into kitchen refinishing. NAPCO’s “Essentials,” which includes its Kitchen Renew Satin products, include three unique refinishing coatings for kitchen cabinets and countertops. The first is a satin countertop coating that functions as a top coat over NAPCO’s popular Flint-Stone, faux-granite product. The other two items are kitchen cabinet coatings, both featuring a satin finish.
“Our priority is the safety of the contractors using our products as well as their customers,” said Steve Coven, CEO of NAPCO. “Quality is equally important. Receiving CRGI Green Wise certification confirms that not only are we on the right path as a company, but we are also doing the right thing for the environment.”
