Wyandotte, Michigan -- BASF said UL Environment (ULe) has validated environmental and sustainability claims for volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions, mould resistance and bio-based content of BASF's spray polyurethane foam (SPF) products.
ULe, a global independent product certification association, completed its environment claims validation tests on BASF's SPF wall insulation, air barrier and roofing products in June 2011. The products included Enertite, Spraytite, Walltite, Comfort Foam, FE348 series and Elastospray, BASF said in an 18 Aug announcement.
"As one of the first manufacturers in our industry to work with ULe on this type of initiative, we are proud to announce the validation of environmental and sustainability claims for our SPF products," said Michael Sievers, business manager of polyurethane spray systems at BASF.
He added, "Independent, third-party validation provides our customers, code officials and the design community with the utmost confidence in the sustainability attributes of our line of spray foam insulation products."
