An SWRI first

SWRI logoPROSOCO’s training program for our R-Guard air- and water-resistive air barrier products recently received approval by the Sealant, Waterproofing and Restoration Institute’s Validated Training Program. This milestone represents a first in the industry — the training program is the first of its kind for air barrier products to achieve this validation.

Our customers can now sign up for our air barrier training programs with the confidence that they’ll not only learn how to use our products effectively, but also that the training meets all requirements set forth by the SWRI.

According to the SWRI, the Validated Training Program was developed several years ago to elevate the industry’s training standards by developing a set of criteria for training programs.

PROSOCO R-Guard products make prestigious Top 10 listWe got great news this week — our R-Guard fluid-applied Cat 5 air barrier system has been awarded a coveted spot on BuildingGreen’s Top 10 Green Products list for 2015.

This isn’t just any old Top 10 list — it’s a veritable “who’s who” of the green building materials industry and includes products across all sectors.

“To appear on BuildingGreen’s Top 10 list is one of the most prestigious honors that PROSOCO has received in my tenure here, and one that we’re extremely proud of,” said Dwayne Fuhlhage, PROSOCO’s sustainability and environment director. “We at PROSOCO have been privileged to collaborate with the best design, engineering and construction firms in the world. I’m excited to see high-performance designs, durable assemblies and Net Zero Energy buildings moving to the mainstream.”

PROSOCO R-Guard fluid-applied Cat 5 air barrier system was praised by BuildingGreen as “representing one of the best in the class.” The components of the Cat 5 system – Joint & Seam Filler, FastFlash and Cat 5, “are all based on the same high-performance ‘hybrid’ polymer chemistry, which has no solvents or isocyanates.”

PROSOCO’s removal of phthalate plasticizers from the system has also enabled its use on Living Building Challenge projects like the Bullitt Center.

PROSOCO was also commended for its support to architects and contractors as well as its leadership role in ingredient disclosure protocols.

“The company offers technical support during both design and construction, and has been a leader in disclosure of ingredients, with this and other products carrying a Health Product Declaration (HPD).”
