Chemcraft Unveils its Eco-friendly Pre-catalyzed Laquer AIRGUARD for Interior Wood Applications

Published on 2011-12-05. Author : SpecialChem

Solvent borne performance and environmental responsibility in one package! AIRGUARD is a ready-to-use, self-sealing pre-catalyzed lacquer that's durable and light stable. This user-friendly product is recommended for office and household furniture, kitchen cabinets, and many other interior wood applications. AIRGUARD has improved moisture resistance, household wear and chemical resistance. When applied, it wets the wood like oil based products and enhances its natural color and beauty.

AIRGUARD is a product that's healthier for indoor environments without sacrificing performance.

Indoor Air Quality

The US Environmental Protection Agency, the American Lung Association, the World Health Organization and other public health and environmental organizations view indoor air pollution as one of the greatest risks to human health.

The GREENGUARD Certification Programs

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI) was created in 2001 to develop a set of testing standards to certify materials used in indoor environments. GREENGUARD Certification takes the guesswork out of choosing low-emitting products by certifying only those products that meet GEI's stringent chemical emissions standards. Products must undergo quarterly monitoring and annual re-testing to maintain their certification.

Why it Matters

By using Chemcraft products bearing the GREENGUARD Certification mark, architects, designers, finishers and specifiers can be assured these products have been independently verified to meet some of the most rigorous chemical emission standards in the world.

The GREENGUARD Certification mark assures consumers that a product contributes to a healthier, more sustainable indoor environment. Chemcraft takes sustainability seriously, and the AIRGUARD product line is formulated with responsiblity to the environment in mind. It's another reason why it is said "A Great Finish is Only the Beginning".
