LEED Certification making products that count

Go for gold (or even platinum!) LEED certification—and let us help you get there. Whether you want to increase your LEED credits or are just beginning your LEED journey, our products can help you:

Meet Indoor Air Quality Requirements (Indoor Low Emitting Materials , IEQ 4.1-4.2)
      • As a Southern California-based business, we’ve formulated products to meet the lowest VOC-emitting standards in the country (SCAQMD VOC Rule 1113).
      • While curing, all KRETUS® systems emit zero to less than        100 g/L VOCs.
      • Once fully cured, all coatings are VOC free.
      • Installed coatings continue to protect building occupants by mitigating the risk of radon and other harmful gas emissions.
      • No harsh chemical cleaning products required: Seamless coatings are non-porous, so they won’t harbor dust or microbes which makes them easy to clean.
Maintain Structural and Non-structural Elements (Building Reuse, MR 1.1-1.3)
      • Our resinous coatings can extend the lifecycle of existing concrete, masonry, drywall, metal, and wood surfaces.
      • Decorative coatings and moisture mitigation systems help to conserve materials, retain cultural resources, reduce waste, and lower environmental impact.
Divert Waste From Landfills (Construction Waste Management, MR 2.1-2.2)
      • Most of our products are housed in recyclable packaging.
      • We ship like products together and use the national distribution network Jon-Don, Inc., to minimize packaging materials.
      • For large installations, we recommend our totes to dramatically reduce waste.
Increase the Amount of Recycled Materials (Recycled Content, MR 4.1-4.2)
      • Recycled aggregates and broadcasts are available upon request.
Promote the Use of Locally Sourced Materials (Regional Materials, MR 5.1-5.2)
      • Most coatings are manufactured in Orange County, California.
      • Other manufacturing facilities are located in New Jersey, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
Reduce the Depletion of Raw Materials (Rapidly Renewable Materials, MR 6)
      • Select products are formulated with rapidly renewable biobased materials.

NOTE: Products alone cannot be LEED certified. While our coating systems and materials can contribute to LEED certification, it is up to the architect, general contractor, and facility owner to see that products are used in a way that meets USGBC guidelines for LEED.
