ST LOUIS, November 15, 2016 – Accella Polyurethane Systems (Accella), a leading manufacturer of polyurethane systems, announces that Tru-Motion PPTM: Indoor Multi-Purpose Athletic Pad and Pour surface has received FloorScore® certification. FloorScore® was developed by the RFCI (Resilient Floor Covering Institute) in combination with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) to create a strict standard around indoor air quality and flooring. To qualify, products must pass the California Department of Public Health section 01350 standard testing for VOC emissions from indoor sources. SCS provides 3rd party certification on this testing in conjunction with a detailed audit of the manufacturing facility. This ensures the facility has proper historical record keeping and quality control measures in place. FloorScore® is qualified for many green building certifications including LEED v4, BREEAM, and CHPS. Tru-Motion PPTM and all its component parts received registration number SCS-FS-04177 from SCS Global Services.
“We’ve brought together industry leading technical composition expertise in polyurethane binder and custom colored rubber crumb, all manufactured at Accella companies and packaged as the Tru-Motion Brand offering one-stop-shop value to our customers,” said Al Restaino, Vice President of Marketing. “We are committed to developing products and solutions to exceed the industry standard for health, safety and sustainability.”
Tru-Motion PPTM, an indoor polyurethane athletic surface, is a durable, long lasting alternative to traditional wood gym floors. Through a unique combination of materials, this system is designed to provide the highest levels of athletic performance and athlete safety as well as great aesthetics. From the adhesive to the game line paint, all components are environmentally friendly without sacrificing durability and ease of maintenance. This product system is made up of 64% post-consumer recycled content when used with Accella’s Ultimate RB base-mat.
“This FloorScore certification is the first initiative of a number of ongoing projects for Tru-Motion PP as one of our most sustainable and healthy product lines,” explains Bob Cunningham, Vice President Technology & Innovation, Accella Performance Materials. “In addition to meeting the California standards for low emitting materials, the polyurethane technology is made with a bio-based polyol that is rapidly renewable, having a limited impact on the eco-system. Keep an eye out for more on this in the coming months.”
