LEED Certification provides independent, third party verification that a building project meets the highest green building and performance measures. To earn LEED Certification, a project must satisfy all prerequisites and earn a minimum number of points outlined in the specific LEED Rating System under which it is registered. There are three credits under the LEED Rating System that apply to Westech adhesives as follows:
Section MR (Materials and Resources), Credit 5.1/5.2 Regional Materials
This credit relates to products manufactured within 500 miles of the building site locations. Our adhesives are manufactured in Port Orchard, WA, 98367. Refer to LEED guidance for further details and confirm that your site is within 500 miles of our manufacturing location.
Section EQ (Indoor Environmental Quality), Credit 4.1 Low Emitting Materials, Adhesives and Sealants
This credit relates to the VOC content of adhesives and sealants and is applicable to the following Westech adhesives:
  • HSC®
  • HSEA®
  • HCC®
  • MPC13®
  • MPEA®
  • Versatile®
  • GrAffix®
Section EQ, Credit 4.4 Low Emitting Materials, Composite Wood and Laminate Adhesives
Westech adhesives do not contain any added urea formaldehyde, therefore all products qualify for this credit. In order to earn LEED credits, the project architect, interior designer, or other responsible party must submit the appropriate completed Submittal Template for each credit being requested. All necessary checklists and forms, as well as additional background information on the LEED Certification Program can be found by selecting the LEED option on the U.S. Green Building Council website at www.usgbc.org.
