Saint-Gobain’s PTFE-coated architectural membrane, Sheerfill II, has received an environmental product declaration (EPD) – the first product of its type to do so.
The EPD is an internationally-recognized report that documents the ways in which a product, throughout its lifecycle, affects the environment. The announcement makes Sheerfill the only PTFE-coated architectural membrane that is Energy Star and Cool Roof rated.
“Our company is committed to producing materials that meet the highest levels of both performance and sustainability. The release of this document allows us to be transparent with Sheerfill users and project owners about the products they are using so that they, too, can reach their sustainability and quality goals,” said Michael Lussier, global market leader for Sheerfill.
Applications of Sheerfill have demonstrated that the membrane can provide in excess of 25 years of reliable service. The first installation of the technology has been in continuous use, since 1973, at the University of La Verne.
