Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for LEED credits
IFS Coatings, Polychem's sister brand, is proud to have three Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs), one for each product in the architectural series.
An EPD is an internationally recognized and standardized document, based on a life cycle assessment, that is used to communicate information about the potential environmental and human health impacts of a product . Similar to a nutritional label, an EPD states what a product is made of and its impacts across the entire life cycle, from raw material extraction to disposal.
IFS 300SP, the IFS standard polyester that meets and exceeds the performance requirements of AAMA 2603, IFS 400SD high performance powder coatings that meet and exceed the performance requirements of AAMA 2604, and IFS 500FP high performance powder coatings that meet and exceed the performance requirements of AAMA 2605, have all achieved an EPD.
IFS Coatings' EPDs meet the requirements of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) LEED V4 Green Building Rating System under the Material Resources credit for Building Product Disclosure and Optimization. The IFS Coatings EPDs can also be used to meet the requirements of other green building ratings programs such BREAM and WELL.
