W.F. Taylor Co. Inc. announces the new patented TruRenew Premium Bio-Renewable Adhesive product line. TruRenew is the first wet flooring adhesive to be certified under the Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute. The first type of adhesive to be released under the TruRenew product line is a pressure sensitive adhesive, scientifically engineered for the interior permanent or releasable installation of modular carpet tiles, vinyl backed carpet, solid vinyl tiles, and pad to substrate in a double stick installation. TruRenew pressure sensitive adhesive is Cradle to Cradle Certified at the Silver level.
Developed in partnership with some of the world’s leading chemical companies, TruRenew’s bio-renewable properties surpassed the four most rigorous third party certification programs in the industry for strict low indoor air chemical emission levels: Cradle to Cradle Certified Products Program, UL’s GREENGUARD Certification Program, Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label Plus Program, and Resilient Floor Covering Institute’s (RFCI) and Scientific Certification Systems (SCS Global) joint FloorScore Program. Products bearing these certifications give installers the ability to meet the criteria of LEED, CHPS, Green Guide for Health Care, the U.S. EPA, and many more green/environmental building credit programs.
Cradle to Cradle Certified is unique, unlike all other industry environmental certifications. It is a multi-attribute certification program that assesses products and materials for safety to human & environmental health, design for future use cycles, and sustainable manufacturing. As a Cradle to Cradle Certified™ product, TruRenew was evaluated for material health, material reutilization, renewable energy use and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.
