Stauf Adhesives Wears Its ‘Green’ Designation with Pride
Long before most companies joined the race to make themselves as green as their competitors, Stauf Adhesives was leading an effort to create an organization that would set the standard for environmentally friendly building products. Stauf Adhesives, the German-based company which more than a decade ago helped create an organization that would set the standard for environmentally friendly building products in Europe, is now a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The USGBC, the preeminent environmental organization involved in the United States construction industry, is a nonprofit organization that certifies sustainable businesses, homes, hospitals, schools and neighborhoods. USGBC is dedicated to expanding green building practices and education, and its LEED® Green Building Rating System.
Stauf Adhesives comply with LEED’s Materials and Resources Category of Points. This is a benefit to architects and specifiers because they can earn valuable points toward LEED green building certification when they use Stauf Adhesives. Stauf Adhesives, which for generations has been concerned about the welfare of our earth as well as the welfare of its customers, is proud to have its products meet the highest standards of competence and responsibility for integrated consumer and environmental protection.
Stauf offers adhesive products throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Its product line in the US includes the unique SMP-960 One-Step, a MS Polymer-based wood floor adhesive that applies a sound and moisture barrier with the adhesive in one easy, 3-way application, saving both time and expense. Like its other adhesive products which include water, urethane and alcohol-based formulas, the SMP-960 meets or exceeds EPA and environmental regulations. The company also produces primers, sealers, trowels, floor prep products and cleaners to complete the line.
