Avery Dennison receives FloorScore Certification

Original Publication: Floor Covering Weekly

Three Avery Dennison Performance Tapes pressure-sensitive adhesive products – FT 8905, FT 8375 and FT 8325 – have received FloorScore certification based on the results of an independent assessment conducted by SCS Global Services.

Developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI), together with SCS, FloorScore is a program that tests and certifies hard surface flooring and floor adhesive products for their compliance with the strict indoor air quality (IAQ) emission requirements. Laboratory testing ensures the products do not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) above thresholds set by the California Department of Public Health.

Products were tested for VOC emissions by SCS partner lab, Eurofins.

“We are very pleased the pressure-sensitive adhesive products we submitted met the FloorScore testing qualifications,” said Kevin Rinehart, product manager, building & construction, Avery Dennison Performance Tapes. “As more emphasis is put on IAQ requirements and regulations, we see pressure-sensitive adhesives becoming more prevalent, and an alternative to many of the high-VOC liquid adhesives currently being used in carpet and resilient flooring applications.”

Products bearing the FloorScore label meet the IAQ emissions criteria of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), Collaboration for High Performance Schools (CHPS), the Green Guide for Health Care and a variety of other healthy building programs.
