This product line in particular addresses concerns about indoor air pollutants, such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

  • Compliance with airborne dust, particle, and fiber limits following installation and room disturbance
  • Resistance to fungal growth
  • VOC emissions below strict criteria 24 hours and 14 days post-installation
