R-Guard products make BuildingGreen's Top 10 list

BuildingGreen has awarded PROSOCO's silyl-terminated poly-ether (STPE) R-Guard products with a coveted spot on its highly regarded 10 Green Products list for 2015. BuildingGreen, publisher of Environmental Building News, announced its Top 10 products at the GreenBuild 2014 conference in New Orleans. (see video below)

PROSOCO R-Guard fluid-applied Cat 5 air barrier system was praised by BuildingGreen as "representing one of the best in the class." The components of the Cat 5 system – Joint & Seam Filler, FastFlash and Cat 5, "are all based on the same high-performance 'hybrid' polymer chemistry, which has no solvents or isocyanates."

PROSOCO's removal of phthalate plasticizers from the system has also enabled its use on Living Building Challenge projects like the Bullitt Center.

"To appear on BuildingGreen's Top 10 list is one of the most prestigious honors that PROSOCO has received in my tenure here, and one that we're extremely proud of," said Dwayne Fuhlhage, PROSOCO's sustainability and environment director. "We at PROSOCO have been privileged to collaborate with the best design, engineering and construction firms in the world. I'm excited to see high-performance designs, durable assemblies and Net Zero Energy buildings moving to the mainstream."

The list, now in its 13th year, reads like a veritable "who's who" in the green building materials industry. A panel of BuildingGreen editors select the top 10 most innovative green building products from hundreds of products every year across a myriad of sectors.

Alex Wilson and Brent Ehrlich from BuildingGreen presented the Top Ten products at a presentation at GreenBuild 2014 conference.

PROSOCO was also commended for its support to architects and contractors as well as its leadership role in ingredient disclosure protocols.

"The company offers technical support during both design and construction, and has been a leader in disclosure of ingredients, with this and other products carrying a Health Product Declaration (HPD)."
