ST.LOUIS–Accella Performance Materials Inc. has been awarded FloorScore certification for its Tru-Motion PP indoor polyurethane athletic surface.
To earn the certification, products must pass the California Department of Public Health section 01350 standard testing for VOC emissions from indoor sources. FloorScore is qualified for many green building certifications, including LEED.
"In addition to meeting the California standards for low emitting materials, the polyurethane technology is made with a bio-based polyol that is rapidly renewable, having a limited impact on the ecosystem," said Bob Cunningham, vice president for technology and innovation at Accella
The FloorScore program was developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute and testing specialist SCS to create a strict standard around indoor air quality and flooring.
