RainStone sustainable cladding has emerged as a new ‘green benchmark level’ for cladding products in the environmentally responsible marketplace. RainStone systems enable architects to meet every requirement in any climate. RainStone’s flat architectural cladding panels are ideally designed for exterior applications. The panels deflect most of the rain and the ventilated cavity between the building structure and the cladding carries away any moisture allowing air to circulate and protecting the entire building from the elements for decades. Attractive, durable and fully weatherproof, RainStone sustainable cladding offers excellent performance and a high degree of design freedom.

Durable, eco-friendly The modulus of elasticity and high tensile and flexural strength of RainStone assures superior resistance and exceptional pull-out strength around mounting fasteners. RainStone’s composite panels are not affected by water and are not susceptible to weathering, mold or rot. RainStone panels can also be easily cut and drilled on the job site using carbide tip woodworking tools. Panel edges must be resealed after cutting.

Fire protection RainStone sustainable cladding offers maximum safety and protection against fire. It is the product of choice in cladding applications requiring high fire resistance. RainStone will not melt, liquefy or explode. In a fire, it retains its stability for an extended time. It has a UL Class A rating for both flame spread and smoke developed index in accordance with ASTM E84 testing.


RainStone Sustainable Cladding is available in Standard Size Panel Format and Ready to Install System • STANDARD SIZE PANEL FORMAT Needs to be cut to size, drilled and edge-sealed before installing. • READY TO INSTALL SYSTEM Includes pre-cut and drilled panels, galvanized rain screen mounting system and installation drawings. Standard panel thickness is 3/8”. Panels come in 4’ x 8’ and 4’ x 10’ lengths.

Maintenance and Care RainStone Cladding panels may be cleaned with a soft cloth and mild cleaning agents such as White Mountain ‘Jobsite’ Cleaner or Dawn detergent and hot water.

“Superior and Safe insulation for you and your walls ”

P E R F O R M A N C E BONDED LOGIC Started out with one objective… to manufacture superior performing products that are safe for you and the environment we live in. Utilizing almost exclusively natural fibers, Bonded Logic combines over twenty-five years of fiber insulation experience with a patented manufacturing process to create an insulation that provides our customers with the two main qualities necessary when it comes to purchasing any building product— Performance and Peace of Mind. All of our insulation products are Class-A fire rated, offer superior thermal and acoustical properties, and are treated with a non-toxic mold, mildew and pest inhibitor. These qualities provide a product that is both high-performing as well as safe for you and the environment. When it comes to making that choice, we know that safety, health, and superior performance are key factors in making that decision. That’s why we are confident that UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation will be the right choice for you!

UltraTouch is environmentally friendly insulation packed with quality features including no-itch or skin irritation, maximum thermal performance, and super sound absorption. UltraTouch is a product whose time has come.

ACOUSTICAL PERFORMANCE Controlling sound and noise transmissions through walls, ceilings and floors can be a complex challenge in design and construction. UltraTouch offers an extremely high Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) to effectively reduce airborne sound transmissions including traffic, airplanes, radio, television, and everday human conversation. The natural fibers used to make UltraTouch provide excellent sound-absorbing qualities, while the patented manufacturing process used to create UltraTouch produces a threedimensional infrastructure that effectively traps, isolates, and controls sound waves. The result is a quiet comfortable environment between rooms, walls, and flooring.

“It is our commitment that Bonded Logic will continue to make safe and sustainable building products that you can count on for years to come”

and peace of mind R-VALUE UltraTouch provides maximum R-Value performance.The unique construction of the insulation contains thousands of tiny air pockets that work to maintain strong thermal protection even in extreme temperature changes. The density of UltraTouch also contributes to providing a consistent thermal performance day in and day out. UltraTouch is manufactured in “oversized” widths and is installed with a friction fit to provide maximum fill capacity. This also reduces the chance for air convection and infiltration that can occur with smaller sized insulation batts.

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE The natural fibers used to manufacture UltraTouch are 100% recyclable, reducing landfill waste. The fibers are also 100% post-industrial, ensuring a high quality fiber. UltraTouch requires minimal energy to manufacture therefore aiding the environment with energy conservation and a reduction in pollution. Other insulation manufacturers consume considerably more energy while creating additional unwanted pollution and landfill waste. UltraTouch contains zero VOCs, has no outgassing concerns and lacks the formaldehyde of traditional insulations. When choosing UltraTouch for your commercial or residential project, you are making a commitment to

Printed on recycled paper containing minimum 10% post-consumer waste and conforming to Forest Stewardship Council standards.

our environment. Your structure will not only be well insulated, thereby maximizing HVAC efficiency, but will also be a healthy space for it's inhabitants to live and work. Making the choice to use UltraTouch Natural Cotton Fiber Insulation confirms your committment to the health and safety of our planet and the people who reside here.

MOLD RESISTANT All natural fibers used to manufacture UltraTouch are treated with a non-toxic borate solution. The fibers are then “flash-dried” to ensure that every fiber that goes into the production of UltraTouch will meet out strict standards. Borates are an effective natural biostat that actively inhibits the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria, and fungi. Borates also act as an excellent fire retardent, giving UltraTouch a Class-A Fire Rating and deterring pest infiltration.

LEED™ UltraTouch Insulation can contribute to earning several LEED credits throughout the program. UltraTouch contains 85% post-industrial recycled content and uses cotton, a rapidly renewable resource, as one of its main ingredients. UltraTouch does not contain any harmful chemicals or irritants and therefore does not pose any VOC or off-gassing concerns. Using UltraTouch for your next LEED project will not only assist you in earning LEED credits but will also provide your clients with a superior, healthy, and safe insulation they can depend on.

Safecoat®

Multi-Purpose Caulk DESCRIPTION: Safecoat Multi-Purpose Caulk is a nottoxic, water-based, elastic emulsion type caulking compound designed to replace oil caulk and putty for windows, cracks and general maintenance work. It provides a water resistant, flexible, easy to install, non sag sealant with excellent initial and permanent adhesion and does not release any solvents or obnoxious odors. As a ready-to-use, pigmented elastomer, Safecoat MultiPurpose Caulk has thixotropic properties which enable the application to be made with ease with no stringiness, yet maintains flexibility and toughness with rapid drying characteristics. It may be applied to a variety of substrates, has high durability and is paintable. Resin rich formula affords maximum bond strength.

caulking gun or mortar joint filler. Install firmly into opening and joints pressing to insure contact with faces. Tool with knife or spatula to smooth and level the sealant surface. As required mask surrounding area to prevent overlapping. Do not allow product to cure on adjacent surfaces. Remove immediately by wiping. After thorough drying out and total cure, caulked surface may be lightly sanded to smoothness desired or to even with adjacent areas. Keep container closed when not in use. Do not apply when surface temperature is below 55 degrees F.

USE ON: Use for caulking windows, sealing cracks, filling holes, door perimeters, walls and woodwork, siding openings and masonry cracks.

CLEAN-UP: Clean tools and equipment while still wet with a solution of SafeChoice Super Clean and warm water.

PRODUCT NUMBER AND CONTAINER SIZE: 71830 (10.5 ounce Tube) ADVANTAGES / SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS:  Effective, easy to use.  Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.  Low odor, non-offensive to installer and occupant.  Very low VOC content.  Contains no formaldehyde. PERFORMANCE VALUES: Not-toxic, no aromatic solvents, single component, good initial tack, water resistant, high adhesion, excellent aging stability, wide use of area, bonds to most substrates, more than 10% elongation, low shrinkage, may be painted, clean with water. SURFACE PREPARATION: Prime and seal surfaces completely before application of caulk to protect against undue absorption into substrate. All surfaces to receive caulk and overlays must be sound, intact and cleaned of any grease, oils, dust, dirt, wax, unsound prior caulk and other foreign materials. Washing with a low odor, not toxic cleaner like SafeChoice Super Clean is recommended. Surface must be completely dry and stable prior to application. APPLICATION: Always have adequate ventilation. Prior to application, clean out all areas to receive caulking down to sound substrate. Remove all dirt, dust, dried out fillers and powdery residue. Blow out or wipe area to reveal a clean base. Adherent surfaces should be dry. Application over wet contact faces may result in lack of bond. Avoid damaged, contaminated substrates including rotted wood. Permit no release compounds, waxed or mildewed surfaces. Previously painted areas that are loose must be scraped clean and metal surfaces should be rust free and de-oiled. Apply Safecoat Multi-Purpose Caulk directly from tube or container with no dilution. If working from bulk container, apply with a pastry decorating bag, bulk

COVERAGE: 1/4” x 1/4” (6.4mm x 6.4mm) width depth cross section can be filled at a rate of approximately 30 lineal feet per tube.

DRYING/CURING TIME: Under normal conditions, 24 hours for full cure. Normal conditions include a clean, dry surface, access to fresh air flow, a dust free environment, moderate humidity, and temperatures above 55 degrees F. Thick application, high humidity or conditions other than normal will cause Safecoat Multi-Purpose Caulk to cure more slowly. LIMITATIONS: Do not apply to substrate in direct sun or where hot to the touch as this will cause excessively fast curing and prevent adhesion into a wet, tacky base. Sample test a small area to assure proper adhesion can be obtained. Unlike conventional caulks, Safecoat is made without formaldehyde preservatives or toxic mildewcides or fungicides. Do not contaminate. Store in airtight containers. Do not use when ambient or surface temperature is below 55°F or above 90°F HEALTH PRECAUTIONS: As with all caulking products, keep container tightly closed and out of the reach of children. Do not take internally. Keep from freezing. Always use adequate ventilation. If you are chemically sensitive, always test for personal tolerance. LIMITED LIABILITY: Safecoat® products are guaranteed not to be defective when properly applied. Liability express or implied is limited to replacement of product or refund of purchase price and does not include liability for labor costs or consequential damages. Variable factors out of manufacturer’s control, such as environmental conditions, application techniques, and surface conditions are critical to results obtained. Users are expected to exercise reasonable care to determine suitability of the product for each application. This limited warranty may not be modified or extended by manufacturer’s representatives, distributors or dealers of AFM products. We particularly recommend that users always test in small inconspicuous areas before application to the entire surface.

• DO NOT  add  any  water,  liquid,  or  other  material  to  QuartzLock Grout!  This will cause grout failure and void  all warranties.  • A milky, white liquid may be present on the surface of the  grout  when  opened.    This  is  from  normal  settling  during  shipment.  The use of a margin trowel is recommended to  bring grout into suspension.  If a drill mixer is used, mix at  low speed for no more than 30 seconds.  Over‐mixing with  a drill mixer may introduce excessive air into the product  and  cause  grout  sagging  on  vertical  applications  and/or  other performance issues.  Continue to mix with a margin  trowel throughout the grouting process.  • Ensure  tile  is  firmly  set  and  mortar  is  completely  dry  (always  follow  manufacturer’s  instructions)  before  grouting.  Remove all spacers, water, debris and adhesive  from tile joints.    • For  best  results,  surface  of  tile  should  be  at  room  temperature  (70°F  to  75°F).  Urethane  materials  are  affected  by  temperature  and  humidity  variations.   Cool  temperatures and/or high humidity will slow cure time.  • To  facilitate  cleaning,  pre‐seal  all  porous  tile  and  natural  stone before grouting.  • For  glass  tile,  polished  marble,  stone  and  other  soft  surfaces,  test  grout  on  a  small  area  to  ensure  compatibility.   • Make  sure  grout  joints  are  clean,  dry,  and  free  from  solvents and residue before grouting.    Application:

PRODUCT USES  QuartzLock  Grout  can  be  used  in  grout  joint  widths  from  1/16”  to  1/2”  on  vertical  or  horizontal  surfaces  in  both  interior and exterior installations of ceramic, porcelain, glass  and natural stone tiles.    INSTALLATION  Read  and  understand  Technical  Data  Sheet  and  Material  Safety Data Sheet completely before beginning installation.  Follow  applicable  ANSI,  TCNA  and  NTCA  installation  standards.    Always  do  a  test  area  to  ensure  product  satisfaction,  including  adhesion  to  substrate,  and/or  to  become  familiar  with  proper  application  techniques  prior  to use.     QuartzLock  Grout  is  a  READY‐TO‐USE  Urethane  Grout  and  different  installation  techniques  are  required  for  successful  product use.  Please read the following instructions carefully.       

• Spread grout  using  a  green,  sharp‐edged,  firm  rubber  grout  float.  Work  the  grout  diagonally  across  the  joints,  packing them full.   • Remove  excess  grout  from  the  tile  surface,  pulling  the  edge  of  the  float  diagonally  across  the  joint  to  prevent  grout removal.    Grout Cleaning:  For  best  results,  remove  grout  haze  AS  YOU  WORK,  particularly in warm or dry climates.  If working alone, only  grout as far as you can reach (10‐12 square foot area) before  initial  cleaning.    If  working  as  a  team,  one  person  should  grout,  with  the  other(s)  cleaning  immediately  behind  the  first person.  • Rinse  sponge  in  water  and  wring  out  completely.  Since  urethane  grout  requires  very  little  water  during  cleanup,  make  sure  that  the  sponge  is  wrung  nearly  dry.  Wipe  lightly,  leaving  sponge  flat  on  the  tile  surface  to  prevent  grout removal from joints.  Excessive water during cleanup

TECHNICAL DATA SHEET 

INSTALLATION

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: Translucent Grout for Glass Tile 

Read and  understand  Technical  Data  Sheet  and  Material  Safety  Data  Sheet  completely  before  beginning  installation.  Follow applicable ANSI, TCNA and NTCA installation standards.   Always do a test area to ensure product satisfaction, including  adhesion to substrate, and/or to become familiar with proper  application techniques prior to use.    StarGlass  Grout  requires  different  installation  techniques  for  successful  product  use.    Please  read  the  following  instructions  carefully.    Preparation for Grouting:  

Glass tile  manufacturers  have  always  desired  a  translucent  grout  that  compliments  their  products.    Cement  and  epoxy  grouts  can  detract  from  a  glass  tile  installation’s  overall  appearance by creating a harsh line that clashes with the tile’s  natural  beauty.    StarGlass™  Grout,  however,  provides  limitless  design  possibilities  and  actually  enhances  the  look  of  glass  tile  by offering never‐before‐seen color and visual possibilities.    StarGlass  Grout  is  a  PRE‐MIXED,  urethane‐based  grout  especially designed for glass tile.  Other grouts contain cement,  sand  and  other  light‐absorbing  materials.    StarGlass  Grout,  on  the  other  hand,  contains  tiny  glass  beads  and  a  translucent  urethane  binder  that  actually  allow  light  to  pass  through  the  grout  itself,  creating  a  unique,  three‐dimensional  effect  and  a  stunning  reflective  appearance.    StarGlass  also  offers  the  traditional benefits of Urethane grout, including:    FEATURES AND BENEFITS  • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •

StarGlass Technical Data Sheet  • Rinse  sponge  in  water  and  wring  out  completely.  Since  urethane  grout  requires  very  little  water  during  cleanup,  make sure that the sponge is wrung nearly dry. Wipe lightly,  leaving  sponge  flat  on  the  tile  surface  to  prevent  grout  removal from joints.  Excessive water used during cleanup can  dilute  the urethane binder  and  cause  curing  issues  that may  lead to grout failure.  • Wipe up spilled water immediately.  Do not allow water to sit  on grout surface or in ungrouted joints.  • Change  water  mixture  after  each  100  square  feet,  for  each  new bucket of grout, or when dirty.  • Check work as you clean. Repair any low spots with additional  grout. Unlike other grouts, DO NOT over wash.  • Allow  cleaned  areas  to  dry,  and  then  inspect  tile  /  stone  surface.    If  a  second  cleaning  is  necessary,  WAIT  3  hours  in  low  humidity  environments  and  6  hours  in  high  humidity  environments,  making  sure  grout  is  cured  enough  to  withstand  light  finger  pressure  without  losing  form,  then  spray  BLAZE™  Urethane  Grout  Cleaner  on  a  white  scrubby  Doodlebug™  cleaning  pad  (do  not  flood  the  surface  with  cleaner).    Rub  the  cleaning  pad  lightly  over  any  remaining  urethane haze, allow it to dwell on the tile / stone surface for  at least 60 seconds (excessive haze may require direct spray  on  surface  and/or  more  dwell  time)  to  ensure  sufficient  penetration.  Use a damp sponge and clean water to remove  the film and cleaner.  Finish by drying the tile surface with a  clean towel or cloth.  Contact StarQuartz if a persistent haze  exists.  Installation Requirements:  • Ensure that joints are well packed. Smaller joints may require  extra  effort.    Failure  to  fully  pack  joints  may  lead  to  slight  discoloration  or  mottling  and  delay  full  color  consistency  for  up to two weeks.   • To  speed  up  installation,  or  for  quarry  and  other  porous  tile  and/or outdoor applications, pre‐wet tile surface using clean  water  with  a  damp  sponge  prior  to  spreading  grout,  being  careful not to leave standing water in the grout joints.  • Maintain  temperature  above  40°F  (5°C)  during  installation  and curing.    CURING  • Protect finished surface from light traffic for at least 24 hours  at  70°F  (21°C).    Heavy  foot  traffic  requires  72  hours  at  70°F  and  50%  relative  humidity.    See  Limitations/Cautions  below  for further curing requirements.  • If  needed,  cover  ONLY  with  kraft  or  breathable  paper  after  initial 24‐hour curing period.    • Full cure depends on grout depth.  Normal cure of a ¼” grout  joint with a 3/8” thick tile is 28 days.  STARQUARTZ INDUSTRIES, INC. PHONE: 866-220-4500

SHOWERS / STEAM SHOWERS / WET APPLICATIONS  • Use an approved waterproof sealer for mud bed applications  and  follow  manufacturer’s  recommendations  for  sealer  installation.  For liquid‐applied waterproofing materials, apply  to  within  1”  of  any  drains  to  prevent  weep  hole  blockage.   The use of pre‐sloped, waterproof trays (instead of mud beds)  is highly recommended.  • Shower,  steam  shower,  pool,  fountain  and  wet  area  installations must be protected from moisture and allowed to  cure for 7 days before use.    LIMITATIONS/CAUTIONS  • Do not apply or clean up this product like traditional cement‐ based  or  epoxy  grouts;  StarGlass  Grout  is  a  new  technology  that  requires  a  simpler  and  easier  application  and  clean‐up  process.    • Follow  manufacturers’  instructions  for  all  other  setting  materials, waterproofing, anti‐fracture membranes, etc., used  on the job.  • Minimum recommended grout joint width is 1/16”.   • Maximum  recommended  grout  joint  width  is  1/2”  for  horizontal and 1/4” for vertical applications.  • Ensure  that  grout  joints  are  fully  packed,  especially  in  tight  and irregular joints.  Take special care in all wet and outdoor  applications.  • Do not use as a setting mortar.  • Not  for  use  in  heavy  industrial  applications  (ie:  chemical  plants), in areas subjected to harsh or persistent chemicals, or  areas  exposed  to  very  aggressive  cleaning  routines  such  as  steam cleaning or pressure washing.    • StarGlass  Grout  is  not  a  replacement  for  a  waterproofing  membrane.    When  a  waterproofing  system  solution  is  required, please contact StarQuartz Technical Service.  • Protect  grout  from  staining  agents  and  chemicals  during  the  cure process.  • Grouting  when  tile  surface  is  above  90°F  (32°C)  is  not  recommended.    Cool  tile  surface  with  damp  sponge  if  tile  surface is above 90°F (32°C). Be careful not to add excessive  water during the tile cooling process.  • Do  not  use  vinegar  or  acid  solutions  for  clean‐up;  this  could damage uncured grout.   • Always  use  protective  clothing  (gloves  and  eye  protection)  when working with grout.  • Prior  to  re‐grouting  applications,  remove  1/8”  of  old  grout  and  remove  any  surface  contaminants.  Be  sure  to  rinse  any  residual  solvent  off  grout  joints,  then  allow  joints  to  completely dry before re‐grouting.

Project Information

EQ Credit 4.1: Low Emitting Materials – Adhesives and Sealants All InterfaceFLOR Recommended Adhesives Meet the LEED Low-Emitting Adhesive Criteria. InterfaceFLOR’s glue-free TacTiles® connectors and traditional adhesive installation products meet the requirements of SCAQMD Rule #1168 as required to obtain this credit.* In addition to eliminating the need for glue, our TacTiles installation system has an environmental impact that is over 90% lower than that of traditional adhesives. (*) All adhesives and sealants used in the building – not just for carpet – must meet the low VOC requirements in order to obtain this credit.

That’s three times more recycled content value at no additional cost with InterfaceFLOR’s GlasBacRE backed carpet tile styles. Choose Convert™ platform styles on GlasBacRE for the highest post-consumer recycled content. Minimize Adhesive Waste with TacTiles. For a 10,000 sq. yd.

InterfaceFLOR Atlanta Showroom - First LEED Commercial Interiors Platinum certified project

( *) All flooring installed in the building must meet these criteria in order to obtain the credit.

InterfaceFLOR modular tile generates just 3.9% installation waste – significantly lower than the 8-14% generated with roll carpet. Our popular i2™ non directional products install with even less waste - just 1.5%. Our TacTiles installation system further reduces waste by eliminating the need for buckets of carpet adhesive. Packaging for rolls of TacTiles connectors is minimal and recyclable. For every 10,000 square yards installed with TacTiles connectors, you can avoid bringing 56 non-recyclable 4-gallon adhesive pails onto your project site. In addition, through our revolutionary ReEntry® 2.0 program, we have the ability to reclaim used carpet and installation waste to keep it out of landfills. Call 888.733.6873 for more information.

With InterfaceFLOR, you’ll LEED the way from the floor up.

EQ Credit 4.3: Low Emitting Materials — Flooring All InterfaceFLOR Carpet Tile Meets LEED Low-Emitting Carpet Criteria. All InterfaceFLOR carpet tile meets the CRI Green Label Plus requirements for low VOC emissions that are required to obtain this credit.* GlasBac® and GlasBacRE backed carpet tile is registered under GLP0820. NexStep® backed carpet tile is registered under GLP1641. Graphlar® backed carpet tiles (manufactured in Europe) meet the requirements of LEED low-emitting carpet criteria.

MR Credit 2.1: Construction Waste Management Minimize construction waste and maximize LEED credit with InterfaceFLOR modular carpet and glue-free installation. Compared to broadloom carpet, our modular carpet tile leads the way when it comes to reducing construction waste, and choosing smarter products at the start of your project means less waste to deal with at the end.

installation, spread adhesive uses 56 four gallon buckets that can’t be recycled or reused. Compare that to 80 recyclable TacTiles cores for the same area.

MR Credit 5: Regional Materials Go local; get the credit. According to LEED CI versions 2.0 and 2009, a minimum of 20% of building materials must be manufactured within a 500-mile radius of the project. InterfaceFLOR carpet tile is manufactured in LaGrange, Georgia. Projects that fall within a 500-mile radius of this location are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to obtain additional LEED credit for LEED CI.* (*) LEED 2009 (except CI) and LEED NC v2.2 require that building materials be manufactured and extracted within 500 miles of the project. Due to the numerous raw materials that are used to make carpet, this credit is incredibly difficult to calculate, and InterfaceFLOR cannot currently provide documentation.

Innovation in Design Credits Climate Neutral Materials (USGBC LEED) Climate Neutral Cool Carpet™. All InterfaceFLOR carpet tile is verified climate neutral. All InterfaceFLOR carpet tile sold in North America is third-party verified climate neutral at no additional cost, so all products qualify for this credit.* LEED has defined stringent criteria for what constitutes “climate neutral materials” and InterfaceFLOR products meet these criteria.

EQ Credit 4.1: Low Emitting Materials – Adhesives and Sealants All InterfaceFLOR Recommended Adhesives Meet the LEED Low-Emitting Adhesive Criteria. InterfaceFLOR’s glue-free TacTiles® connectors and traditional adhesive installation products meet the requirements of SCAQMD Rule #1168 as required to obtain this credit.* In addition to eliminating the need for glue, our TacTiles installation system has an environmental impact that is over 90% lower than that of traditional adhesives. (*) All adhesives and sealants used in the building – not just for carpet – must meet the low VOC requirements in order to obtain this credit.

That’s three times more recycled content value at no additional cost with InterfaceFLOR’s GlasBacRE backed carpet tile styles. Choose Convert™ platform styles on GlasBacRE for the highest post-consumer recycled content. Minimize Adhesive Waste with TacTiles. For a 10,000 sq. yd.

InterfaceFLOR Atlanta Showroom - First LEED Commercial Interiors Platinum certified project

( *) All flooring installed in the building must meet these criteria in order to obtain the credit.

InterfaceFLOR modular tile generates just 3.9% installation waste – significantly lower than the 8-14% generated with roll carpet. Our popular i2™ non directional products install with even less waste - just 1.5%. Our TacTiles installation system further reduces waste by eliminating the need for buckets of carpet adhesive. Packaging for rolls of TacTiles connectors is minimal and recyclable. For every 10,000 square yards installed with TacTiles connectors, you can avoid bringing 56 non-recyclable 4-gallon adhesive pails onto your project site. In addition, through our revolutionary ReEntry® 2.0 program, we have the ability to reclaim used carpet and installation waste to keep it out of landfills. Call 888.733.6873 for more information.

Where Fantasy Meets Reality In designing our latest Convert™ platform styles, David Oakey was inspired by a mix of influences—fashion, art, film, culture, craft and fantasy. As Oakey describes it, these new styles offer today what the Golden Age of Hollywood represented in the 1930s: an escape into beauty and fantasy and laughter. Fashion is fantasy and whimsy and glorious relief from the pressing realities of everyday life. Unlike the “Gold Diggers of 1933”, however, the allure of these products will last longer than one afternoon. Be as conservative as you like or as fantastical as you’ve ever dreamed. Take the elements of design and make a simple statement or mix them together and be creative. It’s safe. And it’s surreal. Convert is InterfaceFLOR’s groundbreaking design platform for carpet tile manufactured with a full color spectrum of post-consumer content nylon fiber and our non-virgin PVC backing. Convert reduces our use of virgin resources, moving us closer every day to a closed-loop system and our Mission Zero™ goal to eliminate any negative impact we may have on the environment by 2020.

Printed with UV inks on 100% post consumer waste (PCW) fiber manufactured using wind power. We have tried our very best to accurately represent product colors. However, due to the nature of printed materials, color of actual products may vary slightly. Please request a sample to see actual product color.

Our modular carpet is square but with a little creativity and our tactiles® installation system, you can easily create and recreate patterns as simple, sophisticated or fantastic as you please. tactiles connectors adhere interfaceFlOr tiles to one another – whether they’re squares or cut into rectangles and triangles – and not the floor beneath. so, no matter how you install it, you’re free to change your mind. But this freedom, along with the tactiles connectors themselves, only comes from interfaceFlOr.

SUSTAINABLE CHOICE

Help Stop Global Warming and Earn a LEED® Innovation Credit. ALL InterfaceFLOR modular carpet sold in North America is third party verified climate neutral Cool Carpet™. Cool Carpet zeros out all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the entire lifecycle of your carpet. And climate neutral verified Cool Carpet is eligible for a USGBC LEED Innovation Credit.

Performance and Flexibility. InterfaceFLOR’s standard backing systems set the industry standard for modular performance. Tiles stay on the floor with no upcurl, no tapping and no rippling effect, yet are easy to selectively replace. Our modular carpet is also easier to handle, install and maintain than bulky roll carpet. And, it installs with less waste so you save time and money — 3-4% for typical modular carpet compared to an average waste factor of 14% for traditional roll carpet.

No Glue Installation. Our revolutionary TacTiles® installation system eliminates the need for glue, adhering tiles securely together to form a floor that “floats” for greater flexibility, easier replacement and long-term performance. The result? Less mess, less waste and greater savings, not to mention an environmental footprint that is over 90% lower than that of traditional glue adhesives.

Mold Protection. Our patented antimicrobial preservative, Intersept, protects our modular carpet against mold growth and odor-causing bacteria — guaranteed. Intersept treated carpet, with proper maintenance, shows no mold or bacterial growth when tested per the ASTM E2471 Standard Test Method. Intersept is low in toxicity, water insoluble and contains no arsenic, heavy metals, phenols or formaldehyde.

Recyclable is Now a Reality. Our ReEntry 2.0 program uses patent pending technology that gives us the ability to cleanly separate the face fiber and backing of nearly any carpet type. Separated type 6 and 6,6 nylon are recycled into new 6 and 6,6 nylon, while separated GlasBac and similar competitor backings are recycled into new non-virgin PVC backing using our Cool Blue™ technology. At InterfaceFLOR, this results in Convert™ — a groundbreaking new design platform for modular carpet manufactured with a full color spectrum of post-consumer content yarn.

Environmental Responsibility. InterfaceFLOR is the industry’s first to earn an EPD (Environmental Product Declaration), which evaluates consistent factors based on full lifecycle assessment (LCA). We achieved an EPD based on our Convert products with type 6,6 nylon that offer never before seen levels of post-consumer content and illustrate our commitment to reducing virgin raw materials and taking responsibility for products at their end of use.

Bamboo Flooring

We have taken care to select only the best quality bamboo floors. Nadurra is a Canadian company manufacturing top quality bamboo floors that meet our sustainability standards such as FSC Certification, Formaldehyde Free and low emitting finishes. Not all bamboo is made alike â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a good quality bamboo floor uses only mature bamboo (5-10 years, depending on the species). Even though bamboo matures quickly, it takes additional years for the plant to thicken and harden. Often cheaper bamboo floors are harvested too early when the plant is weak, which often results in a floor that cups or cracks. Nadurra uses only mature bamboo that is harvested in such a way that natural habitat is not lost, and manufactured responsibly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in addition, properly mature bamboo is many times harder than oak. The result is a long lasting, beautiful floor. Nadurra Bamboo floors are available in a multitude of finishes and collections.

For samples or additional information, please contact Sustain. 1-866-787-0326


The Solid Collection They show the traditional look of bamboo, in its natural tones. No stains - the colours go all the way though the flooring plank, making refinishing of these floors simple. We call these floors engineered-solids, as they are comprised of laminated strips of 100% bamboo. This engineering process and the natural moisture-phobic properties of bamboo creates a floor that is up to 50% more stable than red oak flooring. These floors can go in places where solid hardwood cannot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like in kitchens and basements. They can be nailed-down or glued down in homes, condos and medium traffic commercial environments.

The Composite Collection The hardest bamboo floor ever! Our Composite planks are twice as dense as red oak! The bamboo stalks are shredded into thin strands and then compressed them with binding resins into mega-dense planks. What you get is a floor that has a similar look and grain to exotic woods. Some of the Composite styles have striking colour variances as we mix the Natural and Carbonized colours together. These floors are perfect for livening and toughening up medium-traffic retail stores and salons and are more than enough for homes. The floor will become a main design element of the dĂŠcor. Because of its stability they can be installed above and below grade. *Also available in TRAFFIC for commercial floors.


The Solid Collection Same as The Solid Collection but enlivened with vibrant, German water-based stains. Perfect to add zing to living areas of a house or condo. New colours are added regularly.


The Composite Stained Collection Same as the Composite floors above, toned with deeply earthy, water-based stains. These rich colours make an already stunning floor more diverse.


The Hand-Scraped Collection Hand-scraped â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 6 inches wide and 6 feet long, these planks are amazing when placed in a large expanse. Deep chatter marks and scrapings give these wide planks a rustic yet elegant look perfect for grand homes, converted lofts or cottages that want the rustic look in a new floor. Natural and stained colours available. Constructed with 3 layers of solid bamboo running perpendicular to one another increases the stability of such a wide floor.

PaperStone LEED Certification Information ®

PaperStone® is an architectural composite material made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper that is certified to Forest Stewardship Council standards by the Smartwood program of The Rainforest Alliance. Accordingly, PaperStone® plays a role in enabling a building project to acquire Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) points toward certification. The LEED Green Building Rating System®, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council under contract with the U.S. Department of Energy, is a voluntary standard for developing environmentally responsible, low emission, high-performance, sustainable buildings. LEED certification is for the entire construction project; materials and products used in buildings are not individually certified. Through a rigorous process of third-party verification by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI) the project earns “points” toward achieving a level of certification (Certified, Silver, Gold or Platinum). Use of PaperStone® can contribute to the accumulation of LEED points in selected credit categories of Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation in Design as follows:

Materials and Resources Recycled Content: LEED 2009 awards points for the use of products that contain recycled materials. Credit levels have specific thresholds for the required percentages of post-consumer recycled material or pre-consumer recycled material. Paper made from 100% post-consumer waste is used to manufacture PaperStone® (except Leather). Indoor Environmental Quality LEED 2009 may award a point if all composite wood and agrifiber products installed in the building interior contain no added urea-formaldehyde resins. Additionally, any laminating adhesives used for material installation may not contain added urea-formaldehyde resins. PaperStone® contains no added urea-formaldehyde resins and has been thoroughly tested and certified as VOC-free, including formaldehyde.

ClimateWorks Foundation, San Francisco, features a LEED Platinum interior. This conference and reception area view shows an impressive conference table featuring a PaperStone® top. PHOTO: BRUCE DAMONTE

Innovation in Design Exemplary Performance: Under LEED 2009, additional points can be earned when credit level requirements for Recycled Content are exceeded.

Individual measurement systems have been developed to rate and certify various building types in the commercial, institutional and residential business sectors of the construction industry. As the LEED credit category terminology and point qualification process varies among different types of buildings, prospective users of PaperStone® should consult the relevant LEED rating system reference guide for the specific requirements to certify their construction project. A PaperStone® data sheet will be provided to support the LEED submittal process. Refer to the table on the reverse side for more details on how PaperStone® can assist a commercial, institutional or residential project in obtaining points toward certification. green building

WHAT ARE ICESTONE® DURABLE SURFACES? IceStone durable surfaces are a highly versatile concrete product that is a non-toxic, green, and sustainable alternative to mined or engineered stone. IceStone surfaces do not contain any resins or plastics, therefore it will not fade with exposure to direct sunlight or UV rays.

IceStone surfaces are used for kitchen countertops, backsplashes, bathrooms, tabletops, conference tables, reception areas, transaction areas, bar tops, outdoor kitchens and any other surface where stone could be used. IceStone surfaces are created from 100% recycled glass that is mixed with cement to create a highly

durable and aesthetically beautiful surface that is considered a high performance concrete product. IceStone is twice the strength of marble and has a long product life cycle. IceStone surfaces come in a wide variety of colors including neutrals, earth tones, vibrant and playful hues that are suitable for both commercial and residential installations. Custom colors can be created for large commercial projects.

GREEN BUILDING PRINCIPALS & CERTIFICATIONS At IceStone, we strive to continually improve our product, our manufacturing process, and our environmental impact. We also support the growth and health of our employees. Our company's philosophy values both social and environmental aspects of business. This begins from the non-toxic ingredients we use in IceStone surfaces to our day-lit

manufacturing facility in Brooklyn, NY - our goal is to be a zero waste facility. IceStone is the first and only durable surface to have achieved Cradle to Cradle™ Gold Certification from McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC), which required IceStone to increase its use of renewable energy sources and work towards carbon neutrality. IceStone is also one

of the founding members of B Corporation, which requires meeting a set of comprehensive social and environmental standards. IceStone is often selected for not only its integrity, but its ability to help a project obtain LEED certification. IceStone also has NSF 51 Certification, which identifies the product is suitable for use in food service areas.

INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE

The fabrication, installation and maintenance of IceStone slabs follow similar protocol used with

mined stone. Although it is similar to mined stone, IceStone is unlike resin-based engineered stone, therefore we provide IceStone Fabrication Guidelines that specify how to cut and properly install the product. IceStone products are slightly porous, just like natural stone. Therefore, we require IceStone surfaces to be sealed with one of our recommended water-based or low-VOC sealers (please follow the sealant manufacturers' specific instructions).

In addition, we have a Care & Maintenance Guide to help both fabricators and customers maintain their IceStone surface. IceStone durable surfaces are strong and require basic maintenance to preserve their beauty and performance. We recommend resealing your IceStone surface once a year, just as you would with mined stone. We do not recommend using bleach or ammonia-based or abrasive cleaners on your IceStone surface. Please contact us if you have questions on your specific application.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS IceStone durable surfaces are available in slabs - the dimensions of the slabs are 52.5” wide by 96” long by 1.25” thick. The slab weight is 16.29 lbs/square foot.

American Clay, Loma


The Environmental Impact of the Use of Earth Plasters and The LEED Credits Associated with American Clay Plaster American Clay has a commitment to reviving the use of earthen plasters, which dates back thousand of years. Earth plasters are one of the original sustainable building products – created centuries ago by artisans utilizing the dirt from their home sites. Today, American Clay Earth Plaster’s formulation provides durable and beautiful finishes, which typically last for the life of the building. The combination of beauty, durability and healthful qualities has led to a renaissance in the use of these finishes over the past several years. In recent years the construction industry has begun to focus on the environmental impact of many construction materials. The evaluation of products in the “green movement” encompasses many elements, which must be weighed on a scale of relative importance. These elements include the longevity of the material, the composition, maintenance, recycled content, embodied energy, and the “cradle-to-grave” environmental impact.

Durability Sustainable construction is the core value in the green building industry. American Clay Earth Plasters replicate the plaster walls utilized historically throughout the world. These plasters have an outstanding record of durability and performance dating back thousands of years. The walls will typically last the life of the structure. In many older buildings, the walls can be restored to their original beauty at a fraction of the cost of replacing the finish.

Composition and Embodied Energy American Clay is a blend of post-industrial aggregates, clays, and pigments. The postindustrial aggregates are comprised of rock and post-industrial shell waste crushed into sand. American Clay plasters do not require high-energy kilns or reactors like other plasters and acrylics. American Clay is the lowest embodied energy

choice for your project when used with our Mud Glue. Because of the low embodied energy in the manufacturing process, American Clay has the lowest carbon footprint of any interior finish product.

Recycle/Reuse Content Several marble quarries have supplies of postindustrial stone left from slab marble processing. American Clay utilizes these suppliers for our aggregates. American Clay uses 72% by weight post-industrial recycled content.

VOC Off-Gassing & Indoor Air Quality Our Earth Plasters, Sanded Primer, and Mud Glue are comprised of zero-VOC materials. American Clay Earth Plaster exhibits no off-gassing over the life of the cured walls. The porous clay plaster finish does not support microbial growth, and does not allow moisture to accumulate, helping to maintain a mold-free environment with improved indoor air quality. The use of Mud Glue further enhances the anti-microbial qualities of our natural finishes.

Local Sourcing American Clay has many distributors and retailers strategically located throughout the country. American Clay Earth Plasters are shipped dry to minimize the effects of our products on the environment; adding water at the factory would make our product heavier to ship. The heavier the shipment, the more fuel is used, and the more fuel used, the more greenhouse gases are produced.

Innovations for Future Generations American Clay is currently looking to other possible areas of benefits, including energy efficiencies produced by the clay.


UNITED STATES GREEN BUILDING COUNCIL “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” American Clay has been valued for its beauty and environmental friendliness. However some of the characteristics of American Clay that make it even more attractive are its durability, low maintenance and recycled content. American Clay Earth Plasters contribute to the US Green Build Council’s (USGBC) credits, under the LEED-NC rating system, version 2.2.

MR Prerequisite 1: Storage & Collection of Recyclables Required (1 point)* Provide an area that is dedicated to collection and storage of non-hazardous materials for recycling. *All American Clay packaging is recyclable.

MRcr2.1 and 2.2: Construction Waste Management (1 to 2 points) After applying American Clay Earth Plasters, any unused wet plaster should not be discarded. Dry it on plastic sheets and rehydrate it at a later date for touch ups and repairs.

MRcr4.1 and 4.2: Recycled Content (1 to 2 points) If calculating by weight 35 % of recycled content is usable in this calculation. If calculating by volume 22% is usable in this calculation.

MRcr5.1 and 5.2: Regional Materials (2 points possible) One point is awarded if 10% of the building materials used is extracted, harvested or recovered, as well as being manufactured within a 500-mile radius of the project site and the calculation is based on the cost of the total materials value. The marble dust and clays are available in one of New Mexico’s bordering states. American Clay can contribute to the credit if the raw material supplier is located within 500 miles of the project site. A second point is awarded if the total percentage of the cost of regional materials is at least 20%.

MRcr6: Rapidly Renewable Materials (1 point) One point is awarded if 2.5% of the total value of all building material and products used in the project, based on the cost, is rapidly renewable materials. Using green chemistry, American Clay has developed a casein protein polymer based Mud Glue. Using American Clay Mud Glue can help contribute to this credit.

EQcr4.2: Low-Emitting Materials (1 point) American Clay Earth Plasters, Sanded Primer, Mud Glue and Pigments all have 0 VOCs.

IDcr1-1.4: Innovation in Design (1 point) Many things in nature hold a negative charge, and humans living close to nature are accustomed to being surrounded by a negative charge in the air, or negative ions. Inside today’s modern home there are electrical appliances, electric cords, and synthetic plastic products (latex paint), all of which produce and maintain a positive charge in the air. Surrounding your interior environment with clay that produces negative ions will not only help neutralize the electromagnetic effect created by appliances and synthetic plastics, but will help eliminate static charge on walls and floors, help filter air of pollen and dander, and surround you with the charge humans are accustomed to when living in nature.

Negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. Normal ion count in fresh country air is 2,000 to 4,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter (about the size of a sugar cube). At Yosemite Falls, you’ll experience over 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. On the other hand, the level is far below 600 negative ions per cubic centimeter in an office with computers. Earth Plasters can increase negative ions by 10 – 20 times more in the indoor air environment.

BRODA® is a line of high- performance eco- friendly coatings formulated here in Canada by CBR Products to withstand our environment and help protect it at the same time. CBR has been making low-VOC coatings for over 10 years, with many successful applications on projects large and small, across North America. When it comes time to specify low-VOC coatings for your next project, call us.

1. Natural oil is temporarily bonded to water, pigments are suspended in this liquid. Apply as much to the wood as can be absorbed. 2. Water opens the cells of the wood, promoting deep penetration, carrying oil and pigment into dry, damp or “green” wood. 3. Water evaporates, leaving oil bonded to the wood, locking in pigments. Fungal resistant, vapour permeable finish repels water and resists UV damage. 4. Brushes clean up with water, flushing away excess natural oils and pigments. No harsh solvents required.
