Consolideck LS Receives ‘Declare’ Label for Materials Transparency
PROSOCO has partnered with the International Living Future Institute, which has awarded a Declare label for PROSOCO’s Consolideck LS lithium silicate concrete treatment. Among other attributes, this third-party verification denotes that Consolideck LS is free of the Living Building Challenge v2.2 Red List chemicals of concern.
This makes Consolideck LS the first-ever concrete finish to receive a Declare label. The Declare program enables manufacturers to communicate their product ingredients in an effort to promote transparency and accountability.
“In a perfect world, the marketplace would reward product performance but also green building objectives,” said Dwayne Fuhlhage, sustainability and environment director for PROSOCO. “We’re pleased to see this recognition from the Living Future Institute.”
Consolideck LS and LS/CS were also the first products to achieve third-party certification for indoor air quality performance by SCS Global Services, and they were the first concrete finishes to verify ingredient content through use of the Health Product Declaration open standard. Since initial SCS Indoor Advantage Gold certification in 2008, Consolideck LS and LS/CS have been utilized to harden, dustproof, waterproof and beautify more than 400 million square feet of concrete floors.
