Temple, TX—Wilsonart® High Pressure Laminate (HPL) now includes the International Living Future Institute Declare label, the first laminate to earn the distinction.
“Wilsonart prides itself on offering stylish engineered surfaces that mimic nature without impacting the environment, and we are thrilled to offer the first laminate in the industry to feature the Declare label,” says Rajesh Ramamurthy, VP of Innovation and Technology at Wilsonart (IWF Booth C1904). “Working with Declare underscores Wilsonart’s commitment to environmental sustainability, while also making it easier for our customers to identify the sustainable surface solutions.”
Declare labels, similar to food ingredient labels, detail the material health composition of building products to help inform consumers about the safety of the products they use every day. Wilsonart is the first laminate manufacturer to feature the Declare label.
“The Declare label makes complex information approachable and useful, provides manufacturers with a robust structure to share product data, and saves designers time,” says Ren DeCherney, manufacturing manager, Business Development, International Living Future Institute.
Declare labels are accessible at the free and searchable website: declare.living-future.org The database is used by designers and building developers to specify products that meet multiple green building standards, including the Core Green Building, LBC, LEED and WELL Certifications. The Declare label will be featured on Wilsonart® Laminates.
The Wilsonart HPL products’ label has achieved the declaration status of “Red List Approved.” This designation demonstrates that these Wilsonart Laminate products disclose a minimum of 99 percent of ingredients present in the final product and meet the LBC Red List Imperative requirements through one or more approved exceptions.
Wilsonart HPL brings long-lasting style, on-trend designs and outstanding performance to residential and commercial interiors. With twice as much post-consumer recycled content than any other laminate brand, it’s one of the most innovative and environmentally friendly decorative surface materials available and is ideal for a wide range of vertical and horizontal applications. Wilsonart HPL is also GREENGUARD Gold Certified to meet low chemical emission limits for better indoor air quality.
