Global coatings company PPG recently expanded green rating opportunities for building professionals with the release of an environmental product declaration for its line of Top Gun sealants.

The line, according to PPG, is one of the first sealants in North America to publish an EPD that is certified by public health organization NSF International.

The EPD (which can be viewed here) is a report that documents how the product, throughout its entire lifecycle, impacts the environment. Such documents are used to inform green building initiatives such as LEED v4.

The line of 15 acrylic sealants is used in a variety of interior and exterior applications, on many types of surfaces.

“At PPG, we know how important it is to develop products that help our customers achieve environmental certifications,” said Michael Provenzano, PPG marketing manager, adhesives and sealants.

“PPG is dedicated to helping professionals in the commercial building industry reduce their carbon footprint and meet green building rating requirements such as LEED v4, by offering an environmentally friendly product portfolio of not only paints and stains, but now 15 sealant formulas.”
